Can not upload image in Wordpress

If you use selfhosted WordPress, may have experienced difficulties: can not upload images while writing an article, or may not be able to install the wordpress plugin via wp-admin. Usually, a notice will appear like this:

Unable to create directory / wp-content/uploads/2010/10. Is its parent directory writable by the server?

Do not be confused. Also, you do not need to reinstall WordPress, because such case is only a problem of file setting permissions on wp-content folder. I’ll show you how to handle this: go into your account, continue to | cPanel | File Manager | Public HTML | search wp-content folder. See the screenshot below. Right-click the folder | wp-content | File Permission | next screenshot will appear.

See there. Maybe there is code number 755 when the little box of write on the group permissions and public permissions are not checklisted. Now replace that number with 777 or give a checklist to all of the boxes then click | OK |. Done.

Now, please upload images or install the plugin via wp-admin :)
