Attachments won't upload after switching servers

edited July 2008 in Vanilla 1.0 Help
HI there,

I've just swapped servers, and ported my old vanilla install to the new server.
However, I can't seem to upload attachments, even though I've changed the permissions on the uploads folder to 777 (should it be 666?), and I've changed the uploads path.

I get the error:

Some problems were encountered
Failed to upload the file: youngPeople.jpg

Can anyone help with this simple problem?

    (Bump) ... Sorry. Are there any takers on this one? Thanks :)

    so the upload paths are right?

    did you move the old files across

    Yeah, the path is the correct one (at least, the install created it so I assume it must be) and I did move the folders / files across afterwards.

    OK - this is getting weirder... The new folder will be created, but the attachment will not be created in the folder! And Vanilla complains: - Some problems were encountered - The requested discussion could not be found. Can anyone tell me what's going on? Thanks, Dave
