I am having a similar problem uploading images. I understand that my permissions are probably not correct - the manual I purchased told me to change them to 666 when it appears they need to be 777. I understand that I am making this change to the "uploads" directory ONLY. (Please let me know if this is not correct.)
Here is my question, which may be stupid but I am REALLY new to this so please have patience. When I try to upload, I get the following error:
Unable to create directory /home/wordsand/public_html/watj/wp-content/uploads/2007/10. Is its parent directory writable by the server?
Is the program actually looking for a path beginning with "home"? Or is /home/wordsand/ some sort of general reference to my web site? I would think the actual path should be
If the path the program is trying to create is wrong, how do I change it?
Thanks for the help (and the patience!!)
