    I've looked all throughout these forums and can't seem to find an answer to how to fix this; I am completely unable to upload any images or avatars whatsoever. I am not operating in Safe Mode, the Max File Size seems to be set large enough, but whenever I attach a browsed file and click Submit New Thread, I get the following error.:

    "The uploaded file is not a valid GIF or JPG file. Please ensure that it is and try again."

    Uploading avatars only gives me a rectangle with a red X inside of it, as if they're not being uploaded at all.

    I noticed that version 3 had a fix for this upload problem; is there a fix for it in version 2.3.2?

    This is the URL to my phpinfo:

    If anyone can help me on this I'd very much appreciate it.

    You have open_basedir restrictions on your server. To get uploads to work you need to create a 'tmp' subdirectory under your '/home/e-smith/files/ibays/orchidcom' directory and chmod it to 777. Then in the Admin CP set "Upload In Safe Mode?" to 'Yes' and point the "Safe Mode Temp Directory" to that directory. If you placed the tmp directory in the right place, the path to the Safe Mode Temp Directory will be:
