    Hi, new to wordpress and trying to update a running website using it. When I try to upload an image to a page it gives an error. It's not the file size - it's less than 100kb. it says The uploaded file could not be moved to ....... and then gives a folder name. any help greatfully received :)
    btw - I know I'm running an old version of wordpress, but I only started today and am waiting on host info to be able to input that to update to the new version.

    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.
