Issue uploading images

Getting this error message: The uploaded file could not be moved to wp-content/uploads/2017/04. Recently updated Wordpress manually. Everything is working fine sans uploading media.

I've tried this fix with no results: https://wp-me.com/fix-unable-to-create-directory-wp-content-uploads-is-its-parent-directory-writable...

 

I've also tried setting my folder permissions to to be writable through Filezilla but getting this error message: 500 'SITE CHMOD 755 04': command not understood

 

It's also not a resourcing issue. Image I'm trying to upload is 300kb.

Any help would be appreciated.
Thank you.

Re: Issue uploading images

@augustine,

Be very careful with CHMOD and trying to make a folder writable. If you could then this could pose a serious security risk as 'the world' may be able to write to it too................ aka viruses!!

 

Be careful with workarounds as they often create holes for hackers..........

I don't know about Wordpress, but you did say any help would be appreciated.....................
