    I've just upgraded to 2.7 and when I try to post a photo in my posts or in the media library I get this message. Help?

    The uploaded file could not be moved to /home/armitage/public_html/ArtIsTruth/wp-content/uploads/2008/12.

    Make sure the uploads directory is writable (set permissions to 666)

    Thanks scribu, i tried that, but it only seems to work if permissions are set at 777. Not sure I'm comfortable with that because of security. Any suggestions?

    I'm afraid you can't set permissions in such a way that only WP could write to that directory.
