  • Aborted upgrade Could not create file system

    I get this error during upgrade-

    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="windows-1252"?>
    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="windows-1252"?>
    <error>Could not create file system directory to hold your attachment.</error>

    Make sure the directory specified under Attachments -> Attachment Storage Type in your old installation exists and is chmod 0777.

          Are you using a relative or absolute path...

          relative = ../attachments
          absolute = /var/www/sites/mysite/public_html/attachments

          The resolution is the same. The installer cannot write to your attachments directory. You can move the attachments into the file system before running the upgrade.

                Can I change that value directly in the DB?

                  Not easily because it is stored in a serialized array which will have varying lengths based on your other settings.
