image upload/install problem

Greetings,

I've just downloaded and installed Silverstrip on my local macos x box (on the local Apache server instance). The install went fine, but I can't upload any images. Maybe it's a file permissions error, but I've been through and double checked these and nothing seems amiss.

The specific error it gives me is:

FATAL ERROR: copy(/Library/WebServer/Documents/silverstripe/assets/Uploads/Napule.jpg) [function.copy]: failed to open stream: Permission denied
At line 229 in /Library/WebServer/Documents/silverstripe/sapphire/filesystem/Folder.php

copy(/var/tmp/phptFXxjy,/Library/WebServer/Documents/silverstripe/assets/Uploads/Napule.jpg)
line 229 of Folder.php

Folder->addUploadToFolder(Array)
line 200 of AssetAdmin.php

Now..... if I'm write it's looking to copy the image file from the temp file:

/var/tmp/phptFXxjy

into my Uploads folder.

I've checked in my /var/tmp folder and a file named "phptFXxjy" doesn't exist. That could also be a problem.

However, I can see files it is attempting to upload into this directory (they all have names like of six letters, mixed upper and lower case), but all the files have zero KB - surely that's not right?

Does anyone have any suggestions? Many thanks.

Sounds like the uploads folder doesnt have read / write permissions for your web user. Make sure the user / everyone has those permissions.

Many thanks - that was spot on. The /assets folder was owned by "www" but not the Uploads folder. Doing a "chown" to "www" on the Uploads folder fixed the problem.
Thank you.
