XF 1.2 Avatar upload not working

    Hi all,

    I recently converted my vBulletin forum to xenforo and just ran into a problem uploading avatars. I've tried changing folder permissions to 755 or 777, but it did not work. PHP scripts are owned on the server by the account user.

    I've also looked into error logs and noticed this kinda error for some users:

    getimagesize(/home/tgg/public_html/forums/data/avatars/l/11/11065.jpg): failed to open stream: No such file or directory Today at 10:11 AM - library/XenForo/Model/Avatar.php:252

    When I tried to upload, there was no server error at all.

    What errors are you receiving?

    You haven't actually specified what about it isn't working.

    Basically I am getting broken images instead of avatars.

    I'm running PHP 5.4.25 DSO + suEXEC if that helps

    APC is on as well

    I've just come across this issue and the fix (for me at least) was to chmod 0777 /data/avatars directory (and all child directories).

    It shouldn't happen normally, but I'd transferred the site via FTP to a different location and the permissions weren't properly set-up. ;)
