    Hello,

    I am trying to upload an image into interchange, using the built in product upload function. When I try it, I get the following error:


    The following error occurred:

    Error writing file images/items/A1_bdsd.gif.
    Please correct and try again.

    Maybe you need to log in?

    I am logged in as the admin, and this happens for both .jpg and .gif extensions. If someone could help me out with this, it would be great.

    Thanks!

    mpope,

    Could it be a permission issue? /scripts/fixinterchange and /scripts/fixinterchangeperm may be able to fix that.

    Also, is the items directory writeable?

    Moronhead,

    Thanks for the suggestions - it looks like the items directory is not writeable. Actually I think there is an ownership problem because it will only work if CHMOD\'ed to 777, which is probably a security issue (am I right?).

    If anyone has any more suggestions, it would be great.

    Thanks!

    I had this problem and the reason why is that the owner of the directory which the customer was uploading to was an incorrect owner. I then ran a chown command to correct it..

    chown -R username.username directoryname

    This solved the problem. I have no idea how the directory got wrong ownership... maybe the customer did something to affect it or maybe there\'s a glitch within Interchange.
