Every time I try and upload my logo or an image I get the following:
Unable to create directory wp-content/uploads/2013/04. Is its parent directory writable by the server?
I tried to manually create the folder, but that didn’t work either as it changes it back to wp-content/uploads/
So …HELP I guess.

Please make sure that wp-content>uploads folder has correct permissions ( 755 )

So first I set settings > media ‘Organize my uploads into month- and year-based folders’ to inactive
Then I checked wp-content > uploads file permissions and it was already set to 755
I tried to upload my logo and it didn’t work, I got the following message
‘The uploaded file could not be moved to wp-content/uploads’
…and I still can’t upload my logo or any other image over the Media uploader?
Even when I activate ‘Organize my uploads into month- and year-based folders’ in settings > media I can’t upload images.
So I have no idea what to do now?

Do you mind creating a temporary admin login and posting it here privately so we can look into it?

I activated the default WP theme and tried uploading a file and the error occurred, so the problem is not related to the theme but to the server. I suggest contacting your hosting support regarding this issue, there is little we can do from our end.

Thanks for your feedback and time.
I spoke to my provider and they are keen to help but also asked if you have any idea what the problem is. Also if you have a list of requirements relating to hosting your template?
Without that they say they can’t start looking into the problem.

You can try to change the folder permission to 777 – maybe 755 is not enough in your case. We have no list of minimum requirements because it depends on the wordpress plugins, etc. you want to use but we recommend php5.4, 30 seconds (or more) php execution time and 128 megabyte allocated php memory. PHP5.5 should also work but because some plugins are still not compatible with the latest php version 5.4 is probably the better choice.
