Uploading Images

I get this error message:

Error creating folder "/usr/local/apache2/htdocs/ffsite/img2/" (mkdir() [<a href='plugins/function.mkdir'>function.mkdir</a>]: Permission denied)

The directory is there and the permissions are set to 777. Is there something else I need to do? I had a different and older editor in my form that I replace with the WebAssist version and I never had this message.

Whenever I have seen this issue before it is usually because the folder did not exist before and the web user does not have the permissions to create it. What happens if you create the director img2 yourself? Is the 2 the name of the image you are trying to upload? Please post back with any details that you can and if we need to exchange some info in private I will open a ticket for you.

What is the solution for this issue. I've received it, too. Thanks.

like Eric said, the error usually occurs if the upload directory does not exist on the server.

some servers also dont like the permission to be set to 777, you may need to try 766 or 755.
