    How To Turn On and Use Safe_Mode Uploads

    When you are having permission denied errors while uploading an image (avatar- profile- smilies- or posticon image) through your browser to your forum or admin control panel it might be possible that your account is setup with "safe_mode on". You can determine if Safe Mode is enabled by viewing your phpinfo(); page and searching for Safe Mode.

    If this is the case, goto the images directory with your ftp client and make a new directory called 'temp' so you get images/temp and chmod it to 777 with your ftp client or through the shell.

    Then goto the Administrator Control Panel > vBulletin Options > vBulletin Options > Server Settings and Optimization Options

    and set Safe Mode Upload Enabled to Yes and Safe Mode Temporary Directory to images/temp (and then press the [save] button to apply the changes.
    (This will act as a temporary directory for uploads before they are moved to the database. All files are removed from this directory after database insertion. Note: Do NOT include the trailing slash ('/') after the directory name.)
