Question

WordPress media upload error

When i try to use the WordPress media uploader my files all fail and the following error is displayed: “filename” has failed to upload due to an error The uploaded file could not be moved to wp-content/uploads/2014/03.

I have changed the file permissions through ssh for the uploads folder including it’s content and restarted the server however i am still receiving the same error. No upload path is set on the WordPress media page so i know that isn’t the issue.
