[resolved] ISS file uploads error - Please help - big headache!!! (3 posts)

    I have recently installed WordPress on a windows server and I can't seem to get the file uploads to work properly. I have WordPress configured to:

    - upload files into /wp-content/uploads/.
    - NOT organize by date.
    - "/wp-content/uploads/" has been set to "777" I don't really know if this will work on ISS, but I tried anyway via ftp application.

    The error I get when I attempt to upload a file is:

    "The uploaded file could not be moved to c:\hosting\webhost4life\member\mysite\mysite/wp-content/uploads.
    WordPress [this is where the wp-logo is]

    Does anyone know what is going on with this? Or should I tell my friend to ditch the Windows box?

    Thanks in advance,

    Mike, is your database installed on a diferent server from your web server?

    Hi. Thanks for the reply. The only solution that I ever found here was to move the project to a linux server.
