    When I try to upload an image in the the media gallery it gives me an error saying

    “example.jpg” has failed to upload due to an error
    Unable to create directory \\xxx\xxx\xx\x\x\x\xxxxxxxx\xxxx\xxxxx\xxxxxxx.com\www\store/wp-content/uploads. Is its parent directory writable by the server?

    How can I fix this?

    Change the permissions on the wp-content directory to 766. If you still have problems, try 767 or 777. Once your uploads are working, change the permissions on wp-content back to 755 again and check that everything still works OK.
