Could not open a new file on the server, check the paths and chmods /home/slinging/www/www/forum/yabbfiles/avatars/UserAvatars

do you mean upload ?
if it's an avatar check the size, they have to be really bloody small.

Yeah, I just tried resizing it, even went all the way down to 50x36 and got the same message still.

I get the same message - vaguely recall we had the same issue last time as well.

Have to try and remember how we got round it.

Just upgraded this machine for xp to 7 - so haven't installed the ftp software yet.

Well, this is what seemed to have worked last time: “I'll check the yabbfiles - but unless all these bloody huge pictures have clogged the server can't see why there would be an issue.

Huh - weird. I changed the avatar thingy to 65 x0 'cos it said that would keep the images proportional.
And that's what buggered it up. reset it to 65x65 and it works fine and doesn't resize to exactly 65x65 - go figure.

Anyway, works now.”
