Re: Avatar Upload Problems
As I mentioned above, start with 777 to see if that helps (“chmod -R 777 blogs.dir”). If so then you know that it has to do with permissions on the folders. Then you need to find out, as DJpaul mentions, what user needs to own the folder.
The “nobody” user is most likely not the one as that is the current owner when you get the error. In my case I had to reset the owner from “httpd” (the webserver) to my own account. How you do this varies – in my case I had to run a script provided by my host.
Try and set the owner and group to the user/account you log into the server with, then reset the permissions to 755 and check if it still works.
