Hi all -

When i try to upload an image to one of my pages the upload returns the following error:

"SyntaxError: Unexpected token E"

Uploader halts and freezes.

Checked the chmod of the directory file to which it tries to store the image: 775.

Not sure what this means so could anyone point me in the direction of a solution please?

Hi Mondi,

Are you able to set the chmod over "/assets/Upload"?

Try permission 777 over the "assets/Upload" folder.
This may not be the best fulltime solution, but may allow you to upload the file.
Then you can start pulling the permissions back and see if it still allows upload.
