  • It sounds like the owner of the uploads folder is not set correctly.

    You need to set the owner of the folder and subfolders to the apache user. You may need to contact your host for helping determining the name of the apache user account.

    chown -R apache uploads

    I’ve actually just discovered that all the while the problem isn’t really with wordpress but with my hosting company. They don’t allow me to change the php safe mode and that’s why I think the problem keeps occurring.

    Find a new webhost. There’s really no need for safe mode on these days. That, and there may be other config problems at that host that force you to change directories to 777, etc.
