I've installed the mod and it seems to be working fine. I'm able to upload files.

However, instead of seeing the image (in the case of an image upload), I see a broken image link.

Is this normal or should I be able to see the image? I used the [img]URL[/img] format to try displaying the image. It is a fairly small JPG image.

I also tried just making a link to the image file using Image Name format, but when I click on the link in the post, I get a message saying I don't have permission to view the file.

The permissions for that directory (punbb/uploaded) have been set to 777 and the permissiond fot the parent punbb directory are 755, so I can't see why permission is denied.

Just wondering if you had any suggestions.

Thank you,


thanks for your reply.

post_max_size is set to 8M (so i guess that wouldn't cause a problem).

please let me know if you have any other thoughts.



responding to your questions:

PHP Version 4.3.2
FreeBSD 4.4

No, none of the attempted upload files appear in the uploaded directory.

thanks for the reply.


thanks for the reply. just to answer your last question, yes, the permissions are set as 755 (on both 'punbb' and 'uploaded' directory).

i guess i can try checking with my web host.

one thing that's a bit confusing though is that i have some project management software installed elsewhere on the site, and there aren't any problems with file uploads there. that makes me think that it shouldn't be a web host/server issue.

oh, is that particular error message triggered by a specific type of action, or is it a very general error message that could happen for all sorts of reasons?


Okay, here is a link to the forum: www.AdaptiveEnvironments.org/punbb


Thanks for your reply.

Yes, my php.ini file shows the following code related to file uploads:

; File Uploads ;

; Whether to allow HTTP file uploads.
file_uploads = On

; Temporary directory for HTTP uploaded files (will use system default if not
; specified).
;upload_tmp_dir =

; Maximum allowed size for uploaded files.
upload_max_filesize = 2M


Please let me know if you have any other suggestions.

Thanks for your help.

Sure. I've tried various types - .doc, .jpg, .txt - and the sizes have all been fairly small (7k, 75k, 26k...certainly nothing more than 100k). The filenames have varied, but none have been more than 25-30 characters long, and none have had any extra spaces or . in them (one recent example: Icon_Mag_Summer04cover.jpg).

I'd changed the max file size (in Administration > Plugins > Uploads Conf) to 2000k for all user types right after I first installed. And all user types have upload permission (for now until I get things working...I'll remove the guests' permission after that).

Thank you for your reply and for any other information you can provide.


I've just installed this mod and everything looks to be in the right place, but I'm getting an error with every attempt at uploading.

The error (right after i select the file and hit the "upload" button) is:

An error was encountered
Error: [filename] - could not upload the file.

Does anyone have any thoughts about what might be wrong?

Thanks very much.
