Can't create directory

Post by MMellema » Fri Sep 10, 2010 9:00 am

I can upload images to my IMAGES directory. But when I want to include a picture somewhere in my text I can't do it. The problem is that during uploading the message is coming: CAN'T CREATE (SUB)DIRECTORY. Do I need to change something in my rights or what?
Thnks for the help!

mm I understand y r confused...

the problem is that I can create a folder / directory. In my directory (IMAGES) are images which has been uploaded. Now I want to insert a picture (which has been uploaded in this directory IMAGES) from this directory into my text. But I get a error message that I can't create a folder. So the proces is stopped and I can not insert a picture. What do I have to change, or do I need to create a extra folder by FTP? New error messaGE: This connector is disabled. Please check the "editor/filemanager/connectors/php/config.php" file

Hi,

now I have the same problem with fckeditor too.
After opening the "Picture insert and edit" ( Bild einfügen/editieren ) and pressing the button Server search ( server durchsuchen ) i have got the error message :

Error creating folder "" (Can't create directory)

It is not possible to create a subdirectory. The same error occurs.

CMS version XH 1.1.3. I have also tested the problem with a new installation without any plugins, no modifications, fresh from the ZIP file. Permissions are set like the FAQ said.
The installation was copied from a other webserver and was working an the old server without problems.
I think it is a problem with the php user.

What can i do?

Is the installation made in the root or in some subdirectory?
CMSimple.sk
It's no shame to ask for an answer if all efforts failed.
But it's awful to ask without any effort to find the answer yourself.

I have the cms in the root directory ( http://www.mydomain.de ) and also tried it in a subdirectory ( http://www.mydomain.de/test/ ).
Both methodes have had no problems on my old webserver.

Hi jojo,

have you both installations active?

Delete one of them, maybe that one installation affects the other. You never should install a CMSimple in a subdirectory of another CMSimple-installation.

If you want to operate CMSimple-installations in subdirectories, you should not have a CMSimple-installation in the domain-root (never nest CMSimple installations).

I have the same problem aswell, getting the same error when trying to insert an image to a page:
"Error creating folder "" (Can't create directory)"

I have the test site on a sub directory on my server, www.camperzone.nl/test2
www.camperzone.nl is running an older version of cmsimple aswell
www.camperzone.nl/test is running a older version aswell
So that means 3 cmsimple install on one server, the first 2 never had problems and have been running fine for over a year now.

I will try it on a local server tonight but I gues I will have the same problem.

Where can I find how I need to set the permissions for the different folders in my cmsimple dir on the web server..??
