Imgur? What it is?

Okay, let me copy paste the content of the error message.

Here it is:

“Unable to create directory uploads/2016/10. Is its parent directory writable by the server?”

Do you have any error displayed when uploading?

There could be any reason. Maybe it is just permissions. You should have write permission on wp-content for best results.

Follow Step 5/Adjusting the ownership part of WordPress tutorial. Make sure you find right location of WP directory as it could be somewhere else because you use ServerPilot
