[resolved] Can't upload images in 2.5 (8 posts)

    Hello,

    I can't upload images in 2.5. In Firefox, I get this error message:

    Error #2044: Unhandled IOErrorEvent:. text=Error #2038: File I/O Error.

    In IE7, I get a message that the specified file failed the upload test. Is this a file permissions problem? If so, how do I fix it?

    Thanks,

    Jeff

    Everybody is getting this error in the last few days (and weeks). I don't know why the betatesters didn't push this to be fixed before the release... oh well.

    Will this be something that I will have to remove from my .htaccess file later? Does it pose any security risk?

    It didn't work for me. Any other suggestions? Thanks.

    That fix works.
    It does seem to create a hole for exploit. A better fix soon would be great.

    Yeah, that fix does work. There was an issue with the Bad Behavior plugin as well. Once I turned it off and applied that .htaccess code fix, all went well.
