I get this when i try to install a new plugin:

Installs additions: BuddyPress 2.1.1

Downloading install package from https://downloads.wordpress.org/plugin/buddypress.2.1.1.zip...

Unpacking the package ...

Unable to create directory.

I dont know what its wrong but i think it is some sort of permission problem. But i cannot get it right. Can someone help me?
