Can't Upload images with Media Manager

Postby hlmorgan » Sun Jun 02, 2013 8:54 pm

On my site we can't upload images at all to the media manager. I keep getting an error saying this:

Warning
Warning: Failed to move file!

Error
Unable to upload file.


We have tried everything regarding permissions to try to fix it, but nothing is working. I have googled and looked up and down the forums for solutions but I can't find anything that works. Any help or suggestions would be appreciated.

What are the permissions on the folder? 755 for folders, 644 for files.

Sometimes you need a recursive update of all folders and files from root all the way down to the lowest levels and sub dirs.

Are you doing this as super admin/admin? Check your system information and directory/file permissions tab and make sure everything is green. Also check tmp and log are fine and writable, and exist.

Oh and i've seen owners get messed up too, check the owner of the files/dirs and apache should own everything or whatever the web server is.
I like working with Joomla :)

I too have received an error once clicking upload after selecting files through the browser window. My error says 500-an error has occurred. Then a link shows to return to control panel.

I've tried editing the permissions and the options but I haven't had any success resolving the issue.
