Use chmod and/or chown so your PHP user is allowed to write to that directory.

can you please tell me the command ?

We don’t know your setup and so won’t bother with guessing. The web server on your machine must have permissions to write to the target folders. What you’re trying to do is security sensitive and I highly recommend you take the time to understand how permissions and file uploads work before you try to configure it.
