    Hi

    I am getting the following error when I try to upload avatars:

    Upload Failed! Error was: Unable to create directory /home/bucksboa/public_html/wp-content/blogs.dir/1/files//2009/05. Is its parent directory writable by the server?

    I have spoken to my host (pSek) and they have assured me that the parent directory is writable by the server.

    Does anyone have any advice as to what I might need to do?

    I am running BuddyPress 1.0

    I also get this error when uploading an image:

    Unable to create directory /home/bucksboa/public_html/wp-content/blogs.dir/1/files//2009/03. Is its parent directory writable by the server?

    Make sure that you have set the proper permissions on /blogs.dir/. They should be set at 777.

    Thanks Jeff – once again you save the day!

    Hi

    I had the same problem with uploading images in a new registration, i solved them out changing the permissions to 777 in wordpress-mu/wp-content/blogs.dir/1/files/avatars/ and turning SAFEMODE OFF.

    Now, a new user can registrate and upload a photo. But… the new problem is that the uploaded photo does´nt show, a broken image is shown, in the directory wordpress-mu/wp-content/blogs.dir/1/files/avatars/2/ are the images but doesn’t show on my buddypress.

    When i login and delete my avatar, the default avatar is shown. When i retry to upload my photo the error appears again.

    Here is my url http://cororegatas.com.ar/wordpress-mu/members

    what I might need to do?

    My apologies for my pour english.

    I`m looking forward to your reply.

    Do you have any other plugins installed that may have protected your uploads directory? Some shopping carts plugins, the sermon browser, and WP Super Cache (I think?) like to mess with the uploads directories, some even password protect them with .htaccess and .htpasswrd files to disallow direct linking to the files.

    It’s strange that your avatar would appear only after deleting it. Do you have access to phpMyAdmin to see if the directory reference in the database is correct when you upload it? What does it look like once you delete it?
