The uploaded file could not be moved to wp-content/uploads/

While working with WordPress, I came across this error:

The uploaded file could not be moved  wordpress image upload
The uploaded file could not be moved wp-content/uploads/

 

The uploaded file could not be moved to wp-content/uploads/2015/06 .

After looking for several minutes, I found no answer.  Then what I did to fix my issue is this:

I went to my FTP and changed the file permissions of my wp-content from 755 to 777.

file-permissions2

This change allowed me to upload pictures from my IOS app and from the web.

Then when done, i went and changed it back to 755 for security reasons.

file-permissions

hope this helps.
