Q: What should I do to make the directories conf and data
writable by the album?
There are many possible ways.
If you are using Windows, make sure the directories and all files inside
them are NOT read only.
If you are using UNIX or Linux, make sure the directories and all files
inside them are writable and executable by all users. In most cases, a
chmod 777 data conf will do the job.

You can then go to the Options menu and change the setting of the plugin if you want.
