  • Smilie Upload ERROR?

    When I try to 'Upload Smilie', I get the following error message:

    Warning
    : copy(./images/smilies/smilienamehere.gif): failed to open stream: Permission denied in /admincp/image.php on line 444


    Anyone know what's up?

    Thanks...

    You need to chmod the images/smilies directory to 777. From the Admin CP:

    Smilie File Path
    This file path should be readable AND writeable by your web server (usually chmod 0777)

        Hello . . .

        Where in the Control Panel is this function performed. I have found where to upload smilies, but not where to change this directory.

        Thank you for your help.

          chmod is done via your ftp client i.e. cuteftp etc

            You want to change the directory from images/smilies? I think this is hard-coded.

            If you need to CHMOD your images/smilies directory to 0777, you need an FTP client or SSH/Telnet into your account and make this change.

              Thanks . . . unfortunately, I don't know where to make these changes. I have cpanel for my website as well as vBulletin's cpanel for the forum; but I don't know where to go to make these changes.

              Yup . . . I'm a rookie and I use Front Page almost exclusively when it comes to my websites. So . . . I still don't know how to change this.

                    I received this same error message while trying to upload avatars. So... I assumed I would simply have to change what I changed for the smilies. Unfortunately, it doesn't work. Is there a different way of doing this for avatar uploading?

                      You have to chmod the directory you are uploading these to, to 777.

                        Yup... that's what I did. I went into my cpanel and then to the file list where I found the avatar directory and changed it to 777. Not sure why it won't accept that.

                            I can access it by clicking www or public_html. The it reads... images/avatars. I changed that directory to 777. The same as my smilies directory.

                            Does this help?
