Images will not upload (5 posts)

    When I use either the default uploader in flash mode or the fast file uploader, I get this error:
    The uploaded file could not be moved to D:\Mcgiver-2\wp-rants/wp-content/uploads/2009/06
    Notice the mixed / and \ in the path.

    Here are some settings:
    Wordpress address: http://98.221.161.77:1226/wordpress-corobri
    blog address: http://98.221.161.77:1226/wordpress-corobri
    upload files store to this folder: wp-content/uploads
    full url to path: [Blank}
    Organize my uploads into month- and year-based folders: checked

    a test blog has the same settings and seems to work fine.
    What the hell did I screw up?

    Thanks

    Another PEBCAK (problem exists between chair and keyboard)
    I forgot to make the directory writable. Once I did that, all is well.
    Odd error message tho - I would have expected a :cannot write to folder" message or "folder read only" or something comprehended by mere mortals <G>

    OK - I was wrong. Once I made the folders writable, it seemed to work for a while.
    Today, when I try to upload, the image uploads correctly, except it never appears in the media list. I can see the file on the server into correct folder, but it never appears in the list when I click on the media tab in dashboard.

    Anyone have a clue?

    PhillM, it is a well known problem now - you actually have to start writing something before uploading images (to trigger autosave)

    In otherwords the gallery is not creatrd without an actual post - so you just start posting and then upload - this seems to work for now

    That is so weird - but you're right. When I type something in the body of post, everything works fine!
    Thanks!
