Problem with user pictures displaying

edited March 2013 in Vanilla 2.0 - 2.8
I have just installed a fresh version of Vanilla 2. I am the only user and when I uploaded a picture no picture shows up. However, the forum recognizes that I should have a picture (it allows me to change my picture or remove my picture), but the actual picture does not appear.

The upload directory contains a folder called userpics which is empty. The permission for the upload directory is 777; however, the userpics folder inside that directory is 775. I thought this might be the problem but my I get this response when trying to change "550 CHMOD 777 userpics: Operation not permitted."

Any ideas on how to get profile pictures to work?


  • Bump, anyone have any ideas?
  • Also having this same problem. Any solution? I know GD is already there, and usable.
  • Alright, found out how to fix it. uses safe_mode for PHP.
    Fixed using the following, from a standard installation of Vanilla

    chmod -R 775 uploads
    chmod 644 index.php
    chgrp -R web uploads
    chgrp web index.php
