i've had the same problems with FileUploading.
This morning i installed the latest SS Release with several strange problems.
After the 5th reinstall it worked fine, but i couldnt upload any files.
After applying the patch mentioned in this topic it all worked fine for me, even the WYSIWYG editor still works.
One little bug is still there, by editing content in IE8 i always get an Error when trying to save the changes.
That Problem doesn't appear in Google's Chrome... :D
Thanks very much :D
I hope the installation of modules runs less complicated ;)
Timtim's solution of changing open basedir fixes the problem for me, on latest SVN build - Patch earler broke TinyMCE, without patch this fixes upload and TinyMCE still works, whether applied through php.ini, vhost.conf or httpd.conf.
you are using swfupload from dataobject manager, right? I think you can just remove that directory from your root and do a build - somebody correct me if I'm wrong there.
also, by manually I mean use an (s)ftp client to upload your files to assets then 'look for new files' and see if that works. if you are on deadline that could buy your enough time to do a real fix. ;-)
