Unable to create directory error (7 posts)

    I am using godaddy hosting. I am not quite sure what is causeing my problem or what to do to fix it.

    I upload a lot of pictures a day and I think I need to have sub directories for year/month/day because I post such a large number of pictures.

    I have been unable to load images and am receiving an "Unable to create directory /home/content/38/9142538/html/todaysbighit/wp-content/uploads/2012/10/11. Is its parent directory writable by the server?"

    I have the plug in set to year/month/day. Everything else is default.

    Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

    Try changing the permissions on the wp-content directory to 766. If you still have problems, try 767, 775 or 777. Once your uploads are working, change the permissions on wp-content back to 755 again and check that everything still works OK.

    Thank you for the quick response.

    I just tried as you suggested and the same error occurred.

    I was reading posts yesterday about godaddy only allowing 1024 images a month. I have in the thousands. I am not sure how to create daily sub directories and have images pulled from them, for uploads or how if that is the solution.

    I created a few posts yesterday and on my last post, the error occurred. I am unsure how or why, since I was not messing around with anything besides adding new posts.

    nothing seems to work so far
