Warnings when activating Directory plugin

I get the following warnings when activating the plugin. Looks like it might be a permissions problem? Could you please steer me in the right direction?

    Hello there @johanna_heath, I hope you're well today!

    The above messages say that the plugin can't copy 2 files in the mu-plugins folder.

    Please visit your /wp-content folder and make sure that there is a folder in there called mu-plugins.
    If it already exists, make sure that it is writable by your webserver (check the file rights).
    If it does not exist, manually create that folder.

    After you do the above, please try enabling the plugin again and let us know if that works.

    Awaiting your reply,
    Ari.
