Wordpress Error: Unable to create directory

Wordpress Error: Unable to create directory /wp-content/uploads/2009/mydir/summer/ Is its parent directory writable by the server?
In order to fix this error please login to the Wordpress dashboard ( http://www.domainname.com/wp-admin ) and access the Miscellaneous settings. Find the uploads path specified, it will most likely be specified as:
          /wp-content/uploads/
        
Change it to read:
          wp-content/uploads/ - without a beginning slash
        
After the first " / " is deleted, save settings and that will fix this error.
