I’ve been trying to set up a webcomic on WordPress and ComicPress using MakeUseOf’s guide. I can do all the steps, with just a few little niggles (for instance, there is not Manager Config, there is only Config, and the First Run button does not appear) but at the end when I upload my file named
2012-03-16-this-is-hard.png which is just a test comic, I get this message:
The following files were not uploaded, or the permissions on the uploaded file do not allow reading the file. Check the permissions of both the target directory and the upload directory and try again: 2012-03-16-this-is-hard.png
This is absolutely killing me, especially because I did it on my friend’s WordPress sub-installation and it worked.
After having this error a few times I tried to reinstall, this time not installing CP from the Plugins Directory but literally uploading it via FTP as in MakeUseOf’s guide:
But now the site has completely destroyed itself, if you type in

So please help…
1. How to fix WP back to default and then
2. How to install CP properly.
