    @athimm – Thanks for the clarification. Have you done a “tail” on your apache error log? Mine is showing this:

    [Sat Jun 04 08:46:13 2011] [error] [client 24.234.182.233] File does not exist: /vol/sites/neoncon.com/dev/groups, referer: http://dev.neoncon.com/groups/

    @hnla – Why would we start up a new thread when the community history of this issue lives on this thread? It seems less efficient to be rebooting an unresolved issue on multiple threads.

    As for my wp-content, it is owned by www-data (the apache user) and set to 777. I still experience this issue.

    I think I am experiencing the same behavior. (WP 3.1.3 + BP 1.2.8). Screencast shows the behavior:

    @dougdaulton

    Moved to a new server and am getting this error again. Here are soe details.

    1) WordPress 3.1.1 & BuddyPress 1.2.8

    2) blogs.dir is chown/chgrp to www-data (the apache user) and set to 777 (recursively).

    3) GD is installed.

    4) Safe mode is turned off in PHP

    When one tries to do an upload, this is what happens …

    This was working fine on our old server. So, I am a bit flummoxed. The new setup must be missing something, but what?

    Thanks for the help!

    Disregard. I figured it out.

    @hnla – I just went ahead and built it from scratch. When I am done, I’ll bundle it up and make it available for the community.

    @hnla – I use FireBug, but am looking to grab the enite CSS block that defines the forums & group forum display so I can just drop it in my custom.css in my child theme and adjust colors, spacing, etc. The firebug method forces me to rebuild something that must surely exist elsewhere already.

    Oh, and if anyone has a set of custom forum CSS that makes things sexy, I’d love to see it. Examples of my current forum implementations can be found here:

    I am getting ready to start styling them, so help that could save me time would be much appreciated.

    Has anyone used the tags to sort groups into, well , groups? I have over 100 groups the site I am about to launch and a tabbed UI would be awesome. Can build it myself, but wanted to check and see if anyone had done it already.

    OK. I am working again, now on BP 1.2.5.2. The issue was that I missed this IMPORTANT bit about the WP 3.0 upgrade for WPMU users …

    Move /wp-includes/ms-files.php to /wp-content/

    I assume that issue will be automated in future WP releases.

    Thanks for helping me troubleshoot.

    Just did the following:

    1) Rolled up to the old WP3/BP1.2.5 install

    2) Upgraded to BP 1.2.5.2.

    3) Same Result.

    EXAMPLE IMG URL

    @dougdaulton

    So, I just did the following:

    1) Rolled back to my WP 3.0 & BP 1.2.4 installation.

    2) Made sure the .htaccess file was in place.

    3) Applied latest BP 1.2.5.2 upgrade.

    4) Now, all avatars are missing again. Gravatars still work.

    5) Created new group and tried to upload new avatar. System puked and said dir was not writable.

    6) Fixed permissions on blogs.dir and tried again. Same result.

    EXAMPLE IMG URL:
    http://dev.neoncon.com/files/group-avatars/6/628bd5cfa8f45777ef45f1c7d17cc3c0-bpthumb.jpg

    It looks like there is something missing from the path.

    @r-a-y I just tried to do a standard media upload and it is not working. The behavior is the same. This was working before this upgrade.

    @r-a-y – That is a reference to the current live site, which is built of of WordPress 2.7 (not WPMU). To build this new site (dev.neoncon.com) copied the DB and files to dev and did upgrades from there. So, those references, which only exit within posts, should be broken.

    The issue is with new uploads, specifically the avatars for members and groups.

    This is really frustrating. I was just about to go to production and now this. I can roll back if needed, but would love to get this working.

    @dougdaulton

    OK. PEBKAC error. I was looking at the wrong dir (needed blogs.dir) and the permissions were wrong. Now, it appears to do the upload, but no files appear in the corresponding folder and nothing appears in the crop UI. If I understand the blogs.dir structure correctly, I think I it is trying to create a new blog dir (4) for the images that should apply to the core blog (1). Am I on the right track?

    I cannot be the only one with these issues. Can I?

    @r-a-y – That .htaccess fixed the circular loop issue and appears to be getting us closer. But, now when I try to upload a new avatar, I get this error.

    Upload Failed! Error was: The uploaded file could not be moved to /scratch/VHOSTS/neoncon.com/dev/public/wp-content/blogs.dir/1/files/group-avatars/4.

    Another odd thing, you said the avatars are stored in wp-content/uploads? I show nothing in the dir.

    @dougdaulton

    @r-a-y … I tried that full .htacess file and got a WSoD. I suspect something on the server side is causing the issue.

    @dougdaulton

    So, creating an.htaccess file with just the following brought back my avatars, but now I cannot administer groups. Attempts to use the UI to admin group just gets me in an endless loop where it appears the system will not accept data.

    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteBase /

    # uploaded files
    RewriteRule ^(.*/)?files/$ index.php [L]
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} !.*wp-content/plugins.*
    RewriteRule ^(.*/)?files/(.*) wp-includes/ms-files.php?file=$2 [L]

    So the wp-config.php hack found here does not work:

    define('BP_AVATAR_UPLOAD_PATH',$_SERVER.'/wp-content/uploads');

    @ray … looks like I do not have an .htaccess file … which is weird. Is there a standard .htaccess file that should be present?

    I know email is working on the server because, as admin, I get all of the notices sent by the system.
