XF 1.4 File Permissions


Active member
Once the files are finished uploading, you must set permissions (or CHMOD) several places. This is necessary to ensure that XenForo can write to those parts of your server. You can usually do this with your FTP client.

In the set of files and directories you just uploaded, you will see 2 folders: data and internal_data.
These two directories must be set to world writeable (CHMOD 0777) or give the IUSR_ Full Control in Windows.
Keep your FTP client open; you may still need it for the next step.
I am needing to find out what file permissions i need to have for what. The text I provided is not concrete enough, I am not able to upload attachments or photos in the gallery.

I cannot upload attachments or gallery picture uploads, and I dont know why. I have 777 in all the correct areas, I am needing to find out what is causing the "errored upload". How can I tell what the error is? I need a more detailed error then "There was a problem uploading your file. " lol

What error log should I be looking at, because I have checked everyone that I know of and I dont see anything indicating a returned upload error.
