Support » Fixing WordPress » Error uploading files

  • Hi, I just set up another wordpress blog on my server, I already have two of them running fine. But this one, when I tried to create a test post and upload an image I keep getting this error.

    Warning: file_exists() [function.file-exists]: open_basedir restriction in effect. File(/tmp/phpi0TOOG) is not within the allowed path(s): (/home/) in /home/xxxx/public_html/ on line 1712

    The uploaded file could not be moved to /home/xxxx/public_html/

    Ive checked the file permissions and even tried with with 777 permissions set on the uploads folder.

    Ive tried creating a tmp file and giving it 777 permissions.

    Ive tried changing writing and media settings.

    Have no idea whats wrong…. Any help please?

    I can post text successfully, but images only if I upload them to the server and use a plugin. But the person who will be posting to this site does not know how to use FTP.
