    Uploading files [default cms] Link to this post

    I'm trying to use the CMS File & Images -> upload to get the pictures onto the server (remotely). I get the error:

    "Website Error
    There has been an error
    The website server has not been able to respond to your request."

    I haven't adjusted any code.

    Try again but this time put ?isDev=1 (or &isDev=1 if the URL already has a ?) on the end of the URL. That should put the site in dev mode and give you a more usable error message.

    Do I just need to increase the permissions?

    I just overcame this problem by changing the permissions of the assets folder to 777

    Thanks man, you just saved me hours of work.
    Also make sure to look up with ls -la the Apache User in Ubuntu. Standard user is www-data and group www-data.
    To change open secure shell and do a chown -R www-data:www-data ./assets
    This is a quick fix so your client won't go mad. In the meantime you can check if you really should give full permissions
    to all files contained in /assets.

    Have a great time!
