Directory Creation On Server

The thing deployed application does is, it allows the user of the web-app to create a folder on the server with a name of his/her choice and upload his/her files into that folder. Here is what I am getting as Exception

Caught Exception: access denied ( /var/chroot/home/content/b/r/i/bringlifeto/html/MyDemoDirApp/demodir/testdir write)

Can any body explain me this issue and provide me a correct way to implement it.

Firstly look out if you have the write permissions for the folder you are trying to upload into
