I'm new to WP but everything was smooth until I got to image upload. I'm getting a message: "
Unable to create directory wp-content/uploads/. Is its parent directory writable by the server?" I saw similar question in the forum from years ago but the suggested resolutions (making the change on Miscellaneous which I don't have or changing permissions to 777 which my passive FTP won't allow) didn't work. I did create the "uploads" directory under wp-content but that didn't improve things.
Any solutions? Is there something I can do or my host can help with?
Note, I'm moving my existing Dreamweaver-built site to WordPress, so I have all my images in another folder already. Is there a way to direct the upload to pick from there (instead of uploading images to WP which is what I'm trying to do now)?
Thanks in advance!!!
