    excellent... once I set an absolute unix path (usr/local/psa/...etc all the way down to /tmp, this time within the virtual server directory for tutorialforums) within vB admin, it seems to work perfect... it was set before to just /tmp (which was referring to just above root on the server - its dedicated). I'm curious if this is ok, or if I ought to still have it somewhere non-web-accessable... is having it above the document root for the virtualhost directory secure?

    Have you looked at the link Sn2 posted earlier in this thread?

    http://vbulletin.com/forum/showthrea...threadid=37766

    If that doesn't work, do a search for 'plesk problems'. Many people have had problems with Plesk and have posted workarounds.

    hey this is Dave, the guy Robouk was referring to who owns the server... yep running Plesk 2.0, just upgraded to PHP 4.1.2 this evening.... mysql version is 3.23.36 (trying to see how to upgrade that without screwing up plesk haha).... we're using vB 2.2.4

    The /tmp directory he was referring to is in the root of the server, and is set to 777, though the files inside seem to have minimal permissions (should they be 777 too?). Or, should I make a new tmp directory inside the virtual server's httpdocs folder and set a full unix path to that?

    Can you take another look at http://www.tutorialforums.com/phpinfo.php again and see if anything new and helpful is in there since I've upgraded PHP and whatnot? Are there any other upgrades I absolutely need? (I'm used to having been pampered for the last 2 years with a RackSpace managed server, but it got too expensive so we're trying rackshack).

    Thanks!

    yes, but there is nothing i can do about that i will have to get the person who hosts it to do it.
    I still have probs enetering a URL to a custom avatar, hehe it comes up as a red X when the image exists.

    Did you look at the Plesk link that Sn2 posted? As many people will attest to - Plesk is Evil!

    ok i did that, and i changed it to work in safe mode and i set "Allow Image Size Checking Failure?" to yes

    and when i tried to upload i got the following error:
    WARNING: SAFE MODE restriction in effect. The script whose uid is 10002 is not allowed to access /tmp/50x50.gif owned by uid 0 in usr/local/psa/home/vhosts/tutorialforums.com/httpdocs/member.php on line 1015

    strange....

    By the way, it does look like you are running Plesk. From your phpinfo:


    HOSTNAME: plesk.rackshack.net

    Ahhh, I just looked at your phpinfo again and noticed that your are running in Safe Mode. You'll need to go into your Admin CP/vBulletin Options/Upload Options and turn this feature on. You'll also need to include the full and exact path to the tmp directory that is chmod'd to 777.

    One word of caution however. As long as you are running PHP 4.0.6, you are taking a big security risk by allowing file uploads. If I were you, I would not allow uploads until I upgraded to 4.1.2.

    if you're using plesk then try this, that might be the problem.

    no luck, all that happens is whether i try to upload it or enter the url to a file already uploaded, i just get the error that its not a valid GIF/JPG file.

    i made sure that the "use custom avatar" radio button was checked bothy times :/
