Magento Error – The directory is not writable by server.

By In Magento Development, Website Development On 17/03/2014

When trying to use the insert image functionality in Magento if you receive an error saying:

“The directory is not writable by server.”

Simply add a folder called wysiwyg in your root media folder and change the CHMOD to 777.

For some reason Magento doesn’t always automatically add the upload folder.

Hope this helps someone.
