I am trying to upload images on the default Article node type on D7.
The upload works and the image is confirmed via Linux on the file system.
However, the icon of the uploaded image is a broken link image and the same when viewing the page.
I get the following error message:
Forbidden You don't have permission to access /RT/sites/default/files/field/image/prayer.jpg on this server.
I have been looking into permissions as a solution but with no luck. I went as far as assigning 777 permissions to the files folder and all it's sub-folders and even the target image.
Strangely, I tried uploading an image to an article node on a different website running on the same server which worked. I installed a fresh website and tried it there and that also worked.
Basically, it seems one website among three all on the same server is not responding correctly when I attempt to upload images.
