I have encountered a problem when trying to add an image to WordPress:

"Unable to create directory wp-content/uploads/2017/05. Is its parent directory writable by the server?"

. Thing is that I installed WordPress locally, without MAMP. Root for Apache is /Library/WebServer, port is 80.

Already tried adding define( 'UPLOADS', 'wp-content/uploads' ); to wp-config.php, but it didn't work. According to this, I assume that problems are with permissions of WordPress to /Library/WebServer.

Anyone knows how to change this permissions securely?
