    1) assign 755 (or 777) recursive permission to wp-contents/uploads folder
    2) Make sure you have create tmp directory, and it is writable.

    Hi,

    Assign 766 recursive permissions to wp-contents folder of your blog which will resolve the case..

    Thanks,

    You must have installed WP somewhere, either through FTP or a Control Panel with your provider. Either of them will give you access to your files and folders.

    Today I started experiencing this issue as well after successfully uploading several photos. I did an extensive search on this forum and Google I was amazed to not find a clear resolution. This lead me to searching through the WordPress core files for the error message to see what was going on. The error message seemed to be triggered after the file was uploaded to the temporary directory where php stores the newly uploaded file. I did not have access to this directory, so I contacted my host and they were able to repair/remove the temporary files in the directory. This immediately resolved the issue for me and I hope this helps resolve it for all of you.
