html editor 2 upload problem - can't create directory

html editor 2 upload problem - can't create directory

just installed the HTML Editor 2, uploaded all the files and set the permissions on the image/upload folder to 777 on a unix server running php.

I chose the Default option of the editor.

When i select a file to upload, and hit 'Upload to Server' ... i get the following error.

Error creating folder "redirect:/p?index.php" (Can't create redirect: directory)

I set the update page i created to go to a completely different url than /p?index.php ...

So currently i cannot get any file to upload to the server.

Anyone know why?

When you say you choose the default do you mean that you did not enable advanced file management or the default skin? When you configured the upload folder what did you select?

I have seen the error creating folder message before, but it usually has a valid folder path and name in the error. If you can please post back with a copy of the page in question as well as a copy of your HTMLEditor folder in a zip archive. I will take a look and the files and test some things to determine what may be occurring for you.
