File permissions won't change after moving wp blog folder (2 posts)

    I recently moved my wp site to the root folder. The site looks exactly as it should except my logo is missing from my theme. I tried to upload it to the media library and i got this error:

    "Error saving media attachment."

    I researched it online and found that my permissions need to be changed. I went to my ftp (filezilla) and changed the 'uploads' folder from "xxx" to "755" but i then get this error:

    Status: Set permissions of '/wp-content/uploads' to '755'
    Command: CWD /wp-content
    Response: 250 CWD command successful.
    Command: PWD
    Response: 257 "/wp-content" is current directory.
    Command: SITE CHMOD 755 uploads
    Response: 500 'SITE CHMOD 755 uploads': command not understood

    I created a new folder 'gallery' and attempted the same thing and got the same error. I am able to change permissions on all my other wp sites but not this one. Is it because i changed folders? if so, how do i fix this?

    Try reloading your FTP client. Sometimes it has not properly reread the directories. Otherwise contact your host.
