I noticed this while trying to squash some other bugs!

Steps to reproduce:
1. Clone a new copy of AtoM qa/2.1.x
2. Set it up at normal
3. Try logging in as an administrator
4. Go to Admin->Settings
5. Error 500 is given

Expected result:
You should be able to log in as admin and go to admin->settings after a fresh install.

Work around:
1. Add a new archival description
2. Attach a digital object
3. You can now get to admin->settings

Jesús, I'm assigning to you because I'm 99% sure this is an issue related to how you told me we create the uploads/ folder now only after the first digital object upload. I think that some code in admin->settings is assuming that uploads/ already exists and hence is crashing. Perhaps we could move the create uploads/ folder code to sfInstallPlugin?
