  • Unable to create directory /home/mcmiller/public_html/monniblog/wp-content/uploads/2008/01. Is its parent directory writable by the server?

  • This did not work. I changed the permissions on my blog subfolder as well as my public_html folder. I do not know how to change the permissions any higher up.

    Yes – Same problem here .. have gone through multiple postings – but no fix so far ..

    have removed php safe mode …
    have done 755/777

    seem like a bug of some kind to me ..

    Thanks in advance to those who try to assist !!!

    Ok – Update – Turned Safe Mode off – waited for it to take effect –

    ” Thanks to this post – @http://mu.wordpress.org/forums/topic.php?id=946&page&replies=22
    When safe_mode is turned off, the httpd/apache service needs to be restarted.

    For anyone else that runs into this problem, you can confirm the status of safe_mode by creating a php file with the following lines.


    View the page in your browser and look for the safe_mode setting.

    Was able to verify when it was “really” off …

    Still – such a headache just to upload images …

    Hope that there becomes another work -a – round to this ..

    Good luck to all
