    I keep getting this error on when trying to change Avatars, intermittently.

    I've checked the chmod permissions , disabled add ons, etc it still persists..

    looking through the server logs it appears it has been going on for a while..

    Some days you can upload avatars it seems, someday's you cant... Attachments appear to be working fine

    Any ideas what this could be referring to ?

    Well, the main file to check would be:


    You'd want to check that file and the parent directories to ensure that the web server can write to it. If you did a server transition, you will need to ensure that all the old files are chmodded correctly (0666 or 0777). If you did the folders but not the files, you'll run into errors like this with some existing users.

    All files and folder, sub folders, files etc are chmodded to 0777 in the internal_data and data directory

    im a bit baffled with this tbh..

    Further testing the avatar is actually uploading and changing, im just running into this error..
