    Could well be at my end. Just formatted HD and reinstalled OS X. Everything running fine.

    Went to Post at blog > upload photo > got the error message up top along with a link back to the write page and the usual starting point to upload.

    Some switch in WP - or my end?

    It's funny how it worked. You see, I have wp-images folder on the root and it was always set as that. I have it to categorize what I upload into months. Looking through them all I found all were set to 777. I remove all the permission to 000 and reapplied back to 777 and it worked again. Not sure whether this will solve your issue there.

    What worked for me was to edit the PHP.INI file and set this parameter
    upload_tmp_dir="/tmp"

    and i restarted apache! Worked like a charm!
