Moved WP to a new domain and now can't upload media (5 posts)

    I moved my domain from http://www.perfect-green.co.uk/newsite to http://www.perfect-green.co.uk and everything seems to look and function properly.
    My problem comes in that when i try to upload new media i get this error message:

    “limited-270-01.png” has failed to upload due to an error
    The uploaded file could not be moved to /home/3645/mh_t_pgg23/www.perfect-green.co.uk/public_html/wp-content/uploads/2012/10.

    Is there something that I need to change that I may have missed?
    I've changed the full URL path in the settings>media page from perfect-green.co.uk/newsite/wp-content.... to perfect-green.co.uk/wp-content...

    Any help would be much appreciated!

    Try changing the permissions on the wp-content directory to 766. If you still have problems, try 767, 775 or 777. Once your uploads are working, change the permissions on wp-content back to 755 again and check that everything still works OK.

    Thanks for the reply.
    Could you tell me how I go about changing the permission on the wp-content directory? I'm quite new to wordpress!

    So I found out how to change the permissions on the wp-content directory, changed to the different combinations you suggested but none of them will let me upload any new media.
    Do you have any other suggestions?

    I have been having the same problem but after changing around the permissions, it can only upload but does does not display the images. What could be the problem?
