Featured Image Issue

  1. Hello, I just recently set up my website with WordPress and I am trying to set a featured image. However, I keep running into the following message when trying to upload from my computer:

    Unable to create directory wp-content/uploads/2012/11. Is its parent directory writable by the server?

    So I tried to set it by uploading an image by URL. However, I noticed that's not possible either.

    Is there any way I can set the featured image manually by code or something? Otherwise, I'm not entirely sure how to resolve the error message.

    The website in question is:

    Thank you.
