well I got an uploader for my website and it works fine its just whenever I upload materials to the uploader to test to make sure it works, and it does, but I click on the link to the file and it says access forbidden.

I made the file that has all the uploads viewable to the public but all the files that are uploaded arent viewable. How do I make it so they automatically are viewable?

my website is www.animatorshall.com/v1/upload

and my login is animhall

my cpanel im using is VPS optimized whatever that means.

PLEASE HELP

to reproduce the problem, upload a file then try to view the file you uploaded. you get an access denied thing.

Hi Smoke_Kills,

Did you upload the script from root? Check out who the system recognizes own the script file.

In both the cases you will have to contact your hosting company to get the file permissions correct. You receive Forbidden message only when you don't have permission to access that file. Looks like smoke_kills and foxegy2 are both new to these problems so the best way to get the problem resolved is to contact your host and get it corrected. If they are not willing to help, change the hosting company immediately.

Hi,

I have tried uploading a test .jpg file and I have got the the error. These type of php upload scripts will be uploading the images (or any files ) in the ownership of apache user(mostly its "nobody" ). So please ask your host to give the upload folder 644 permission.
