Solved: 6 Years, 6 Months, 4 Weeks ago
Hi. I know that some threads mentioned the directory being a problem and some threads mentioned CHMOD & changing 777 somewhere. I'm a newbie and I'm having major major issues with avatar uploads right now.

I've tried searching for what CHMOD is & how to apply it but there are too many results with the CHMOD & broken up info. A guide need to be a sticky thread on here about what exactly CHMOD is what does it do & how it works with pictures.


Problem: We are receiving a message saying that 'The avatar Url is not correct. Try a valid URL' (or something Similar) or when we try and upload it just says that the upload failed.

Error messages: When uploading:

The following errors were encountered:

The file upload failed. Please choose a valid file and try again.

When using URL:



The following errors were encountered:

The URL you entered for your avatar does not appear to be valid. Please ensure you enter a valid URL.

1. You should update MyBB at least to 1.6.16 as soon as possible if you don't want to get hacked (especially that you shared your URL).
2. 1.6.x problems should be posted in 1.6 support forums, moved.

ACP -> Configuration -> Attachment Types. Do you have image extensions like .png or .jpg there?

Any activated plugins? Provide a list.

Also run ACP -> Tools & Maintenance -> File Verification and show the result here.

The link is wrong and will be fixed in 1.8.4 or 1.8.5: https://github.com/mybb/mybb/issues/1729

You can use any other tutorial, just google "how to chmod", it's not MyBB specific. Here an exemplary tutorial for the FileZilla FTP app: http://www.cubecartforums.org/docs/appen...ories.html

Im trying to follow the link you gave me but I don't see any folders anywhere on changing this for the avatar. Can someone kinda walk me through it with pictures? I am using firezilla via ftp with access to the whole directory.

I figured out the problem. What the issue was is the /uploads folder did not exist in my directory. so I created one & right clicked on it & changed file attributes.
