Script suddenly not working


I have a content management system on my website. Recently all my pages which involve image uploads have stopped working properly and give the error:

[B]Warning[/B]:  copy(/68.jpg) [[function.copy](]:  failed to open stream: Permission denied in [B]/home/thesite/public_html/cms/galleryEditCategories.php[/B]  on line [B]79[/B]

I’ve changed my server since and it’s almost as if the copy function isn’t working properly now. Could anyone please help me!


Check your file permissions.

You changed servers and you forgot to give write permissions to the right folders.

I’ve recursed 777 into alll the directories just to see if that would work but it hasn’t though.

Actually… just realised I gave the wrong example. This particular file was giving the error cos I’d deleted the upload directory variable in the script. Have replaced it now but still getting the errors.

However, all the files aren’t uploading an image but it isn’t giving any error. I’m getting the “File uploaded successfully message” but no image file appears.

Sussed it! Imagemagick wasnt installed by default on new server!
