I have the new version and installed but I get the following error under the file manager.

Code

The blog's media directory «media/blogs/a/» could not be created, because the parent directory is not writable or does not exist.
The blog's media directory «media/blogs/b/» could not be created, because the parent directory is not writable or does not exist.
The blog's media directory «media/blogs/links/» could not be created, because the parent directory is not writable or does not exist.
You don't have access to any root directory

How do I fix this?

It may seem a bit noobish. But I'm having the same problem and I'm not getting an oh DUH, oops.
What did you do to fix this?
Thanks.

Well.. the error is saying that your media directory is not writable...
So chmod your media directory to 777

I'm still not tired of mentioning that chmod 777 would allow users on the same host to delete your media files, if the webserver is not setup securely.

Please try 755 and 775 before.

See http://manual.b2evolution.net/Directory_and_file_permissions

It seems that you are the only one who can work with 755 or 775.
I have not encountered someone else who succeeded.. ;)

Yeh on my server 775 locks me out as well, with my admin ftp account, althought it still works via php applications, but i'm a ftp user, so i just use 777. *Prepares to get hacked*

Okay. I tried both 755 and 775 with no success. So I changed it to 777 and the directories were created by b2evo with 755. So Now that they're created I guess I can change the root directory back to 755 as well.

yes, probably. If you have the "users" and "blogs" directory already therein. If you don't have "users" and don't want/need user media directories, it will be fine, too.
