Can't upload a zip attachment - Hostpro - 2012-05-26

Hey guys,

I'm trying to upload a zipped folder as an attachment but I keep getting this error:

The size is 160KB and the maximum zip file I can upload is 1MB,

Not sure why this is happening,

CHMOD ./uploads/ folder to 777

It is already CHMODDED, and so are all of these:

Are you able to upload images using any other software other then MyBB? If no then you've to as support from your webhost.

Thank You for the logins;

Make sure the ./uploads folder and the folders inside are CHMOD 777.

Also check that the uploads path is correct in ACP >> Configuration >> Server and Optimization Options >> Uploads Path

If that makes no difference it's probably a server/host problem and you'll need to contact them.


RE: Can't upload a zip attachment - Hostpro - 2012-05-26

Should the uploads path be ./uploads or just /uploads?

Just fixed the problem, the upload directory was 777, but the folders within weren't. Now they are all 777 within the directory too and it works.

Thanks for your help Yaldaram,

./ refers to the root folder. (Root folder means the folder where you've installed your copy of MyBB)

"uploads" folder should be in the root
