BUG in WP2.7: File Uploader (3 posts)

    The file uploader (both flash and non-flash) states that it cannot upload an image and that I should check whether the parent directory is writable. The error persists even if wp-content (including wp-content/uploads) is recursively set to mode 777 or owned by www-data (which is the user my web server runs as) or both.

    Other files below wp-content such as plugin and theme source files are writable by wordpress. Editing them in the admin panel works. Hence the upload problem is a bug within the file uploader that is hopefully to be fixed soon.

    Many people seem to be having the problem (just hit the search).

    I think this must be to be a server configuration issue. We've been using 2.7 for a few weeks now and have no issues uploading anything via IE7 or FF3.

    i don't know how it can be a server issue. wordpress should use fopen to open calls. that relies only on permission - which are fine.
