Title: Posting photo error
Post by: RHYAK on August 13, 2019, 05:22:40 PM
So recently upgraded to 2.0.15 and have since lost all photos that were posted before and now unable to post them either to our forum.

This includes in a post and the Personalized Picture in the profiles.

Thank you in advance

This is the error that I am receiving when trying to post.

You need to change the file permissions on the attachments folder to something SMF can write to, probably 777 permissions or maybe 775 permissions.

Looking around and can't find anything that would require a change like that. Where would I find that?
Thank you

You don’t do this from inside SMF, you do it from either your FTP package or from your hosting’s control panel (or ask your host how to do it)
