WordPress error "The uploaded file could not be moved to..."

WordPress gives you the following error "The uploaded file could not be moved to wp-content/upload/<year>/<date>"

Do not set permission on the folder to 777. This is a security issue. Instead open a support ticket on our contact page and have Ultra Web Hosting run the following from the command line...
chown -R nobody /home/<username>/public_html/wp-content/uploads
