For sure my issues are at the server admin/security level.

I'm pretty sure because I just locally installed WAMP on my PC (UwAmp actually, but no need for the MySQL)
and then installed CMSimple. Works a treat straight out the 'box' (no need for the KCFinder plug-in, though I may try it later).
All image & image folder related issues are gone.

I'll speak nicely to the sysadmin when he's back.

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

I have the test site on a sub directory on my server, is running an older version of cmsimple aswell 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..??
right click on folder on your ftp root propeties ;)
