Hi there

I'm having some troubles creating new folders in the Files & Images tab in the admin section.

The folder pops up fine, however I can't upload nor import to this folder. I've made chmod 777 on assets folder and all children, but this doesn't fix anything.

Has somebody had the same problem?

Make sure the ownership is correct as well.

Hi Keeny

Could you please spell it our for me, I really don't know what this means? Is it some sort of cgi-script, or?

Many, many thanks.

You need to make sure that apache as read/write perms on those folders. I think this is a moot point if you've opened everything up to 777.

This is unlikely a permissions issue. What do you mean when you say "cannot upload or import"? Is there an error? It sounds like it's coming from Silverstripe, not your filesystem.

Hi UncleCheese

Screendump 1: This is where I create the new folder - everything looks good

Screendump 2: This is an upload to the new folder. This should be a regular gif-file, however somethings really not right.

Screendump 3: This is an import. The filename is right, but there is no image.

Via my FTP I can see that assets is 777, and so is the new folder. However, there are no files in the folder.

So, what could cause this. It looks to me like it's a path or something that is not right...?

Oh, and by the way. Import and upload works brilliant in existing folders created locally...
