Custom Images

Postby Mordain » Mon Aug 07, 2006 1:42 am

I want to allow users to upload custom pics of their toons onto their sigs, the problem is that I keep getting an error that says:

Custom Images folder isn't writable
Click HERE to try to chmod [/home/aetherfl/public_html/roster/addons/siggen/img/members/]
Custom Image uploading is temporarily disabled

If I try to chmod it, it gives me this error:

Warning: chmod(): Operation not permitted in /home/aetherfl/public_html/roster/addons/siggen/inc/functions.inc on line 47

and underneath that it says:

Custom Images folder COULD NOT be chmod'ed
Manually set write access

What sould I do?

I think it's obvious...

Do what it says
Code: Select all
Custom Images folder COULD NOT be chmod'ed
Manually set write access



Oh, and by they way, users cannot upload images themselves
The roster admin has to do it

Well, you see, the problem is that I am a noob at this :rabbit2: . I tried changing the permissions on the files it mentioned to 666 and 777 but neither helped. Am I missing something here?

Did you chmod the folder?
Code: Select all
/home/aetherfl/public_html/roster/addons/siggen/img/members/

Yes but every time I try it says:

Code: Select all
Warning: chmod(): Operation not permitted in /home/aetherfl/public_html/roster/addons/siggen/inc/functions.inc on line 47

Try chmodding the folder from your ftp client.

It succesfully did it. It said:

CHMOD 666 members
200 Permissions changed on members

Siggen still says I need to set write access :sad:

Does it again. I get a confirmation:

CHMOD 777 members
200 Permissions changed on members

and it still says I need to write permissions.

Then I dunno, if your host has a control panel of some sort, try using that

If this doesn't work, then there's something up with your host

Do all the folders up to that one have to have the permissions set correctly? Also, why does the error refer to /home/aetherfl/public_html/roster/addons/siggen/inc/functions.inc

Thats the file that has the command that was trying to chmod the folder

Only the 'members' folder needs those permissions, the ones above it do not

Well now I feel dumb. Somehow I had a Siggen folder in my root roster folder and another in the addons folder. I kept messing around with the one in the root folder, which was the wrong one. Oh well, problem solved. Thanks for all the help though!!
