Avatar Problems

Post by Hiroshi »

I tried uploading an avatar from my computer. It follows the guidelines of the limit being 150x150 and 10kb. However I kept recieving this message after submitting:

Warning: Unable to create './images/avatars/182d38d940ed7dd857bec.jpg': Permission denied in /home/sites/site1/web/forum/includes/usercp_avatar.php on line 227

Haven't the slightest of what's going on...I'm new to the forums btw. Geez, what a great first post. :(

The same thing occurred on Wally's forum after the heavy server crash. Emmzee needs to set the permissions on the avatars folder. For now, Hiroshi, you can link to the avatar off-site if available.

The avatar settings in the admin panal seem to be fine, though I've had problems with uploading as well... I'm guessing this is a problem with the database and not our settings, so I'll leave that to Emmzee to fix. (If Wally could provide what exactly got messed up on his that'd be a big help :))

The avatars folder needs to be set to CHMOD 777. Thats FTP, not database ;)
