Problem uploading file.

I am hoping someone would be kind enough to point me in the right direction.

For the most part my textpattern-based site is up and running, the only glaring issue the inability to upload files using the “Files” component. I have tried with various file types and sizes to no avail. The notification that I displayed after I attempt to upload a file reads – “Failed to upload file test.pdf – Failed to write file to disk”

The problem is unique to this function, uploading image does not pose any problems and the permissions for both the Images folder and the Files folder are both set to 755.

Thank you in advance.

Re: Problem uploading file.

Try if setting the permissions to 777 helps to solve the problem. If it does, then ask your webhost is if it’s safe to use those permissions on a directory.

Re: Problem uploading file.

Ruud, thank you for the suggestion, but I’m afraid there was no change – still getting the same message.

The page seems to work fine if I upload via FTP but, there I are other who need the ability to upload without going through FTP. I don’t understand why uploading images is fine while this had problems….
