Jeff, If this script is running as nobody, or some other low-class user, and the permissions on the directory in which you are attempting to create a sub-directory do not allow the creation of the sub-directory by this user, then mkdir will fail.
Say your script resides in 'php-stuff' with permissions 755 and the owner/group is chuck/chuck. No one but owner chuck (and root) will be able to create a directory in this directory. According to your script, you are trying to create 'php-stuff/Pins', which is disallowed to 'nobody', the typical user of web-based PHP scripts.
