I have a fresh 2.4 install.

I have problems with file uploads. I cant upload png's or jpgs. After selecting the file and pressing the upload button
SS triggers this error in an alert box:

"Dies ist kein gültiger Upload" -> _t('File.NOVALIDUPLOAD', 'File is not a valid upload')

safe_mode = OFF

I have this line in _config.php:


but also in dev-mode I cant read out any infos from firebug console, the file requestet at this moment returns -> 200 OK 200 OK 564ms

does anybody have an idea what here could be wrong?


if I try to upload 2 files:

uncaught exception: [Exception... "Component returned failure code: 0x80004005 (NS_ERROR_FAILURE) [nsIDOMWindowInternal.alert]" nsresult: "0x80004005 (NS_ERROR_FAILURE)" location: "JS frame :: :: <TOP_LEVEL> :: line 8" data: no]

Line 0
