Cant upload media

Hi I am trying to upload media images to my wordpress site but whenever I try to do I get the following error;

Unable to create directory wp-content/uploads/2018/02. Is its parent directory writable by the server?


Please advise

That appears to indicate a permissions issue.  


Check in your WordPress dashboard -- Settings > Media -- and make sure that you have checked:


 Organize my uploads into month- and year-based folders


If that doesn't resolve the issue, you'll need to FTP into your account and make sure wp-content/uploads is set to 775.


HTH! 😉
