XF 1.5 Problems uploading avatars, attachments and importing language

After upgrading XenForo 1.5.5a and try to put the language file (spanish.xml) at (Admin Panel) :

Enter a valid filename. The requested file can not be read .

When you try to upload an avatar or file :

The following error occurred :

The uploaded file is too large for the server to process.

My configuration (My own VPS):
  • Data and internal_data have chmod 777
php.ini :
  • file_uploads = On
  • upload_tmp_dir = / opt / tmp
  • upload_max_filesize = 8M
nginx :
  • client_max_body_size 8M ;
I don't know what else I can do, I'm desperate.

Any ideas?

Is your upload_tmp_dir actually correct and writable? You may want to try a different location. This is definitely an issue with PHP writing the uploaded file.
