  • Unable to write test file

    I'm changing the directory that the attachments are stored in.
    When I enter the new directory path (vita the Admincp etc) I receive the
    following message:

    "We attempted to write a test file to ***(directory path)*****, but we were unsuccessful. Please verify that the web server has write/delete permissions for this path.

    I've verified that the path is correct and set the directory permissions to 777 as required. Is there something else I need to do?

    Honestly that message is pretty clear and in my experience has never been wrong. That directory is not world-readable and writable. You need to double-check this.

      I just double checked it. The webhost techs sent an e-mail confirming that the directory is world-readable & writeable.

      Running "ls" returns this for the directory:

      drwxrwxrwx 2 nyce nyce 512 Jun 4 00:38 files

        Then the only other explanation is that you are looking at the wrong directory. There really is no other possibility. This remains a server issue, not a vB one.
