I started out using blogger because it's so easy, but want to try to learn wordpress. I'm having a hard time getting anywhere with it because I don't know anything about building websites, ftp, scripts, any of that junk. It took me forever to even get the blog up (I am using 000webhost.com because it's free to play around with until I learn what I am doing). Anyways, all I want to do is change my theme but I can't figure out how the hell to do it. Logged into wordpress, every time I try to upload a new theme it says "Unable to create directory /home/********/public_html/wp-content/uploads/2009/12. Is its parent directory writable by the server?" I have tried changing the directory in the settings.miscellaneous to just wp-content/uploads without the / in front of the wp-content but that didn't help. There are other suggestions I have read online about changing the permissions to 775 or 777, but I can't seem to figure out how to do that. In the 000webhost file manager, I can see the wp-content folder, and the permissions say rwxr-xr-x, whatever that means. On the far right side of the screen there are options called "actions", that allow you to view, edit, and open, but these are not available to any folder, only individual files, so it doesn't seem like I can change the settings at all for the wp-content folder. Anyone know what to do here?
