WordPress image upload error


Staff member
Im trying to upload an image to my wordpress schoolproject but WordPress gives me the error:

"Unable to create directory wp-content/uploads/2014/05. Is its parent directory writable by the server?"

So far I have given all the maps and images 0 restrictions. Which means that anyone can edit or move them.
I've read the WordPress forums about "miscellaneous" option at the dashboard. But I can't find it.

Im running WordPress on localhost. I have checked the search ways and names a couple of times, but that does not seems to be the problem.

What can I do to solve this problem? I rather not re-install all the WordPress files. It took me quite a while to get to where Iam now.
