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

I've upload and setup wordpress in windows server 2008 R2 using IIS. After successfully setup this application.

Facing error "Unable to create directory wp-content/uploads/2014/03. Is its parent directory writable by the server?". Prior to that, there are already some setting have been done, please check http://dotnetfish.blogspot.com/2013/10/error-message-500-internal-server-error.html


How to solve the problem? When upload the file to wordpress, the file will save into upload folder inside wp-content. What i do is add a modify permission to user IUSR and apply the setting to child folder as well.


After done the setting, problem solved.

Thank you! I didn't realize it had to be set up for the iusr, once I fixed permissions for that user it worked fine!
