Is anyone else having this problem? Our server recently had a cpanel upgrade and now Wordpress sites on that server can no longer upload images. They get a HTTP error message.

Hello :)

Please set 777 permission for upload folder.
Please refrain from advising users to blindly set permissions to "777" on a directory without first understanding the consequences of such an action, or determining if that's even the cause of the issue.

What is the specific error message you see in /usr/local/apache/logs/error_log when this happens? If you don't have root access, please obtain this information from your hosting provider.

Thank you.
