And I fixed my jcropper issue, too. I really don’t know how I managed to do this, but there was an extra “s” in ms-files.php in my .htaccess file.
Originally, it was:
# uploaded files
RewriteRule ^(.*/)?files/(.*) wp-includes/ms-filess.php?file=$2 [L]
Should have been (and I changed it to):
# uploaded files
RewriteRule ^(.*/)?files/(.*) wp-includes/ms-files.php?file=$2 [L]
Looks like my webhost managed to fix the upload issue. As you might expect, I made a rather dumb mistake. Although I’m not too technical, so no surprises!
“The problem was the blogs.dir directory was created as a file rather than a directory”
Although NOW my issue is that once the image is uploaded, the jquery cropper fails to load, so I’m still unable to get unique images to either profiles or groups. I know many others are having this particular problem, too. If others have particular insights into fixing the jcropper issue – please post. Thanks!!
And again, I’m using WordPress (3.0.1) in multisite and the latest version of BuddyPress (1.2.6) on a subsite.
I’ had temporarily set the wp-content directory and blogs.dir to 777 permissions and tried to upload avatars – still didn’t work. I’ve checked with my webhost (site5), they did the same thing and it didn’t work either.
I’m having the same problem.
On an older (v. 18.104.22.168) BuddyPress site on it’s own WordPress (3.0.1) install I was able to upload avatars just fine.
Now, on the latest BuddyPress (v. 1.2.6) driven subdomain on a WordPress (3.0.1) network site, I’m having this upload problem. The error message specifically is:
“Upload Failed! Error was: Unable to create directory /group-avatars/1. Is its parent directory writable by the server?”
Seems like a bug in the latest version. As @BionicClick pointed out above, this very site (buddypress.org) has the same problem!
