File upload submission gives PHP errors

  1. When submitting with an image attached via a file upload field, I get the following errors: It "submits" successfully, but with no image attached.

    Any thoughts or insights?

    This isn't a Gravity Forms issue, but a server one. Check out this post for more details:

  3. I have the same errors, after trying to change the upload-directory of a form.

    add_filter("gform_upload_path_2", "change_upload_path");
    function change_upload_path($path_info){
    $path_info["path"] = "/webcontent/wp-content/themes/vib/images/profielimages/";
    $path_info["url"] = get_bloginfo('stylesheet_directory')."/images/profielimages/";
    return $path_info;
    }
    I am confused of why I must give a "path" and a "url". I hardcoded the "path" because I was desperate (where does it begin - this "path"-entry and what is it used for?) The uploading was ok, before I wanted to change the path_name, so I was thinking that this was not a server problem. I DO want the images of this form to be located in this specific directory. Do you still think it is a server problem? The directory is already existing.

    It is a server permissions issue. Seems you are limited in where you are allowed to put files. Contact your web host regarding what you are trying to do and they should be able to help you.

  5. Thanx David, I'll try. And can you give me any feedback on the code in my "change_upload_path"-function? Are the elements filled correctly ?

    I think you would want template_url instead of stylesheet_url for your bloginfo call, but otherwise it looks fine.
