Wordpress: The uploaded file could not be moved to wp-content/uploads/
Hey guys, I’m having an issue with not being able to upload media onto the wordpress site. Plugins update and install normally, but if i try to upload a pic for a post, it gives me the error “The uploaded file could not be moved to wp-content/uploads/2016/03/”. I checked to make sure that www-data has access over my website root folder. I did the same with my FTP user. I even changed wp-content and uploads perms to 777. Nothing works. If you have a solution, it would be appreciated.
