Can't install plugins! Unable to create directory uploads/2014/01

  1. Hi,

    I've been having some issues with my website. I am trying to import dummie content and I cant even install the WordPress importer becasue I keep getting this message: Unable to create directory uploads/2014/01.
    I already checked my php5.ini file. Do i need a php.ini file as well?
    I also changed permissions to 777. I didn't have an uploads folder so i created it and manually added the 2014 directory and the 01 directory and changed permissions to 777 and still nothing!

    How can i fix this? :(

    Thanks for your help!

    This site is for support of sites hosted on WordPress.COM. You should address your questions to WordPress.ORG the keepers of the software you are using: http://wordpress.org/support/

    The forum at WordPress.ORG is not connected to WordPress.COM so you will need to open an account at .ORG if you do not already have one. You may use the same email at WordPress.ORG as you do at WordPress.COM.
