    Hi there,

    I’ve created a form using the correct tags, set a defined upload folder, and set permissions on this to 777. The folder created by Contact Form 7 wouldn’t allow me to change it’s permissions.

    No matter what I try, I cannot get mail attachments to work, and receive a Validation error popup every time I try to send.

    Any help much appreciated.

    The folder created by Contact Form 7 wouldn’t allow me to change it’s permissions.

    I strongly suggest you contact your host for assistance with changing permissions on that folder.

    What permissions do I need to set it to? I’d created another folder, and changed wp-config to point to it, but even with permissions at 777 on that folder, it still didn’t work.

    If anyone else is having this problem, where the mail form returns a validation error because the file attachment won’t upload, it’s not to do with permissions.

    You have to have php-cgi / php-fast-cgi enabled on your server.

    Thanks for the pointer though zoonini.
