Cannot Upload Avatar -Error- (unable to create directory)
I just installed Buddy Press today.
When I try to upload an avatar, I get this error:
Upload Failed! Error was: Unable to create directory /avatars/1. Is its parent directory writable by the server?
I’m thinking this is a CHMOD / Permissions issue but I’m not sure which directories need to be re-written with new permissions.
