WordPress image upload "failed to write to disk" urgent! (2 posts)

    Image upload has worked well for months. Suddenly, I get "failed to write file to disk" though nothing has changed. Read the forums and worked with my hosting co to do the following:

    Checked the php.ini file to read: upload_tmp_dir="/tmp"
    It did, but host co suggested using a new tmp folder within images, so:
    Changed "/tmp" to be a tmp folder inside wp-content/images
    Permissions set to 777.
    Restarted database.

    What else can I do? My host co won't help further since it's my own installation of wp. My site is on a shared linux server. Anything else I can add?

    I'm desperate, and grateful for any assistance!

    I'm having this exact same problem. Was there ever a solution to this? I'm using v. 2.7 however.
