I got the following error when trying to upload a file to Wordpress media library:

"Unable to create directory wp-content/uploads/2014/02. Is its parent directory writable by the server?"

I got into Linux but cannot find wordpress.  This is my fourth attempt at uploading to the Media Library.

Maybe I'm getting tired,  or shortsighted in my search for a solution?

If you change the owner of the WordPress folder then you shouldn't have any further issues with this...

chown -R www-data:www-data /var/www/wordpress
