FAILED (Upload folder could not be created.) error with Gravity Forms

If you are using Gravity Forms for WordPress and have a form where users can upload a file attachment. You may come across this error when a user submits a form:

FAILED (Upload folder could not be created.)

Besides what you may read online about how to fix this, this is NOT a permission error but a rights error. It is similar to the error that happens on this post.

To fix this, you need to login to server with SSH command line and edit the below command with your server username.

chown -R nobody /home/_serverusername_/public_html/wp-content/uploads/gravity_forms

Remember to change serverusername with your server username.
