Thank you for your question jameel!

Sorry for the trouble uploading in your WordPress. It appears you are having a <a href="">permissions problem</a>. I ran a "fixperms" on your files to set them to default. Please try uploading again. To have your permissions fixed faster than asking a question in the support center, you can chat or call support and they can run the "fixperms" right then and there for you so you don't have to wait. If you are still unable to upload we will need <a href="">support to replicate the problem</a>. Sorry for the trouble.

Best Regards,
James R
