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.

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. ;)
