  • Error when uploading smilies

    To start off with, I'm hosting my forum on my own windows server. I have all files copied locally to my server. When I try to upload some new smilies I get the following error:

    Warning: copy(./images/smilies/angry.gif) [function.copy]: failed to create stream: Permission denied in C:\Inetpub\myweb\vb\admincp\image.php on line 444

    Any ideas on this one? I went into IIS and verified that I do have read and write permissions on that smilie directory.

    Since this is a Windows server, you also need to have a valid upload_tmp_dir setting in your php.ini file that points to a directory that is world-readable and writable.
