Author Posts October 30, 2006 at 9:02 pm #35751 testmonkey12Member This is what I get when I try to upload a file: “Unable to create directory /home/wpcom/public_html/wp-inst/wp-content/blogs.dir/9b7/506911/files//2006/10. Is its parent directory writable by the server?” October 30, 2006 at 9:42 pm #35973 mattStaff Sorry, please try again. We had a problem with the files system which caused some downtime and errors like this. October 30, 2006 at 9:50 pm #35975 fcfwknitMember Matt, I had the same error earlier. It stopped, but when I upload a JPG now, I don’t see it (no error message), and the last time I tried, I got a 503 error. I’m not sure this is resolved yet? October 30, 2006 at 9:54 pm #35978 drmikeMember Looks like they may still be having issues since we have three threads on the same subject and I’m getting the occasional 503 error. Best bet would be to just wait it out. :) edit: Avatars are hit and miss as well here in the forums. October 30, 2006 at 10:00 pm #35979 fcfwknitMember Thanks, drmike! I think I’ll go get my outdoor chores done now instead of blowing them off. I’ll try again later. October 30, 2006 at 10:07 pm #35982 drmikeMember I’m running windows update myself. Probably take as long as your chores. :) Author Posts The topic ‘Header not working?’ is closed to new replies.
