Hi I'm new to wordpress and Pageline. I have the platform theme and I'm trying to change the header logo and every time I try and upload my image I get the following message. Upload Error: Unable to create directory /Volumes/DATA/rwsites/dirtyproper.com/www/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2011/01. Is its parent directory writable by the server? What files do I need to change the permissions on? Thanks for your help and time Trey

Well it seems to be that somehow some of your folders are not writable. Do you have FTP access to your server? If so, you'll want to check out your wp-content/uploads folder and see what the situation is.

Tyler Thanks for the response. I am using Fetch to access my server but when I look for the folder wp-content/uploads it does not exist. I have tried creating a folder called uploads in the wp-cintent folder but that didn't work either. Any other ideas? Thanks again for your time

Got It. I had to create the uploads folder and set the permissions to "777"
