    Uploading images in WordPress - Not working

    The uploaded file could not be moved to /home/blogname/public_html/acmeblog/wp-content/uploads/2009/05.

    I get that error when I try to upload a image in WordPress, but I don't have a "home" or a folder after the /home but I do have a path as the following:

    /public_html/acmeblog/wp-content/

    Except I don't have this part

    uploads/2009/05.

    How come WP is just not creating it and placing the images on it's own ? Someone mentioned to me to create the folder upload inside wp-content/ and make it with a CHMOD of 777, I've done that and I still get this error:

    The uploaded file could not be moved to /home/pathname/public_html/blogname/wp-content/uploads/2009/05

    Good Article. I had the same problem but hadn't time to sort it out So I used photobucket.com and hosted images externally.
