I'm the only IT guy at my company, and we have installed WordPress on our webserver (IIS 6). I followed the 5 minute installation and everything went great. Except until the person setting up this site tried to upload a theme. This is the error we get:
Unable to create directory wp-content/uploads/2013/02. Is its parent directory writable by the server?
I've searched for this error, and all I can find is information about setting the permissions to 777. I'll confess that I have absolutely no idea what that means. What permissions? It occurred to me that maybe I need to set up FTP access to the wordpress directory, but I can find no such spot in wordpress to identify an FTP server/login.
I've also heard that it could be an issue with the file size, however I have verified that the file is below the limit set in php.ini.
Any help is greatly appreciated. Thank you!
