XF 1.4 [SOLVED] Impossible to upload Avatars and/or Attachments


Active member

As Brogan suggested here, I'm starting my own thread as I don't find the same kind of error on other threads..
I've reinstalled my forum from scratch yesterday and since then I can't upload avatars.

When I try from my profile, all I get is a blank screen.

When I try to upload an attachment, here is what I get :


I've make sure all directories (and subs) are 777.

This is what I get in the logs :

Thanks for the help in advance,

The error seems to indicate a problem with one of the files.

Can you run the file health check?
Also try uploading the library/XenForo/Image/Gd.php file again, from a fresh download .zip from your customer area.

Thanks Brogan :

File Health Check
Potential Problems

[*]library/XenForo/ControllerAdmin/Feed.phpFile does not contain expected contents.
[*]library/XenForo/Image/Gd.phpFile does not contain expected contents.
[*]library/XenForo/DataWriter/ProfilePostComment.phpFile does not contain expected contents.
I'll upload the file again tonight. Thanks a lot for your answer.

I would recommend downloading a new copy of the upgrade .zip from your customer area and uploading all files again.

If possible, use cPanel and extract the .zip on the server, otherwise use something like WinSCP.
I don't recommend using FileZilla as we have had numerous reports of issues with it.
