    Hi Frekel,

    Wonderful plugin! Thank you! I installed the photocontest plugin and it looks seamless on my sight. However, whenever a subscriber tries to enter the contest and upload a picture they get this error page:

    Error:
    Problems while reading the file data.

    Error:
    Unknown upload error

    Please tell me what I need to do to fix.

    Here is the link to my site’s contest.

    Thanks so much. If you require anything additional from me, please send me a personal message.

    Thank you!
    Summer

  • I figured it out. Problem was with my contest file. I needed to change permissions.

    Thanks again for this wonderful plugin. I will be sure to donate.

    I would like to be one of them, it would help if the post would have been more specific and then I could try if it would work for me… .-)

    Sorry I wasn’t specific. Check the writable permissions of the folders in wp-content folder and sub-folders for the plugin. The plugin and upload folders should be writable.

    I’m getting the same error but my wp-photocontest folder is set to 777 though.
    What am I doing wrong?

    @vizzual: Please post you WP version and WP PhotoContest version!

    I cannot upload photos.
    I receive the following error:
    Problems while reading the file data.
    Error:
    Unknown upload error

    and

    [09-Nov-2010 13:29:29] PHP Warning: move_uploaded_file() [function.move-uploaded-file]: Unable to move ‘/tmp/phpnEphXX’ to ‘/home/inimini/public_html/wp-content/plugins/wp-photocontest/contests_holder/concurs4/user1_02012010036.jpg’ in /home/inimini/public_html/wp-content/plugins/wp-photocontest/play.php on line 252

    contests_folder rights are 777

    My site:
    http://www.inimini.ro
    Menu: Concurs
    Submenu: Concurs4
    User: user1
    Pass: userunu

    What can i do?

    Thenk you!

    Looks like the rights aren’t correctly:

    Please change the rights of the following folders (777 to be sure or check the uploads folder in /home/inimini/public_html/wp-content/:

    /home/inimini/public_html/wp-content/plugins/wp-photocontest
    /home/inimini/public_html/wp-content/plugings
    /home/inimini/public_html/wp-content

    If this doesn’t work, please email me you FTP details so I can check!

    Greets,
    Frank

    Thank for your advice.
    I already try this and it doesn’t work.

    I change my theme for another reason and now it works.
    The rights for the folders that you said are set to 755.

    10x again,
    Alin

    Retry your upload

    First check you don’t have any javascript errors and that the permissions are set correctly. If it is an update of an earlier version, please remove the plugin and reinstall it!

    (we will have contact by mail!!)
