Incorrect file name

When I do a file upload it goes the server and directory I setup but it makes two files and the file name changes to a strange name 5c4ef64d957c3158d93bfc043570f3e9.jpg and 5c4ef64d957c3158d93bfc043570f3e9_tmp.jpg

Basically the way that the upload works is that the file is uploaded to a temporary directory with a temporary name and then it gets copied over to the correct directory and the name is changed.

The reason that the file is uploaded with such a strange name is that the read/write properties aren't set up correctly on either the temp upload directory, or the final location directory. Make sure those directories have read write permissions for everyone.
