Upload Directory is Full error
« on: July 02, 2020, 02:51:02 AM »
Tried to upload a picture to the forum tonight and got this error:

"Table Mesa BOH.png There was a problem during the uploading of Table Mesa BOH.png.
The upload directory is full. Please contact an administrator about this problem. 0.5 MB"

Logged out,  tried again several times, same error.

I can't find anything in help or in admin to correct.   HELP !

SMF 2.1 RC2 is what we are using.

I modified the original post to show the screen shot of the error and not the actual attachment I was trying to post.   Sorry for any confusion.

It's not the size of the image (1/2mb),  I uploaded several 3.5mb images earlier in the day.    We have plenty of room on our server.

In the attachments settings page you can set a maximum size for all attachments on the server, useful back in the day when you’d only have a few hundred MB of hosting space max. You need to change that setting, it defaults to 100MB total for all attachments.
Please don’t PM me for paid work, I’m not for hire, and even if I was, I doubt you could afford me.

I already had all of the settings at "0" which should have given me unlimited.

Not sure what changed from last night to this morning but I was able to upload the attachment fine just now.

Just another crazy glitch on SMF 2.1 RC2 I guess.

Either that or your hosting ran out of temporary space while handling the upload.

But honestly, glitches are to be expected in pre-release software...

I can not upload  .png  to my SMF forum.   Can not remember what the error message is, but if I convert the image to .jpg or .gif and it will upload fine.

If I knew what I was doing, everything would be so simple

Please open your own topic and add the error message.
