Avatars fail after backup restore

  • Hi,

    I have an issue with my avatars after having recovered the site from a backup. The site only shows gravatars, even though the uploads folder holds all the files.

    Now when I try to upload new images, I get the message: “Upload Failed! Error was: Unable to create directory /avatars/4. Is its parent directory writable by the server?” And even setting the entire upload folder and subfolders to 777 doesnt change this.

    Any ideas please?

    Regards, GooseNL

  • Ahh… It seemed I was a little quick to jump the gun and post this…

    It works again, after having set the folder ‘2011’ in uploads to chmod 777 ( although I have no idea as to why this is )… now setting all back to 755
