Is its parent directory writable by the server? I reinstalled wordpress through the cpanel of the server, but it still has the same problem. help!

You may want to reread them as you may have missed other items. :) Good luck, -drmike Author Posts The topic ‘image upload problem’ is closed to new replies.
