Describe here your question/suggestion/issue and how to reproduce it.
I have this message at the top of every admin screen:
"Upload folder is not writable. Export and file upload features will not be functional."
I have gone throgh each of the wp-content folders and manually set the permissions. I have also run these two commands in Putty:
To make the uploads folder writeable:
sudo chown -R bitnami:daemon /opt/bitnami/apps/wordpress/htdocs/wp-content/uploads
To make all folders writeable:
sudo chown -R bitnami:daemon /opt/bitnami/apps/wordpress/htdocs
I have not tested an image upload yet.
