Cannot upload avatar by URL

Postby Keybounce » Sun Jun 27, 2010 6:35 am

I cannot upload by URL an avatar.

I attempted to upload http://upload.wikimedia.org./wikipedia/ ... rs80_2.jpg

Image

But I get this error message:
[phpBB Debug] PHP Notice: in file /includes/functions_upload.php on line 812: tempnam() [function.tempnam]: open_basedir restriction in effect. File() is not within the allowed path(s): (/var/www/clients/i5268/dragoneers.com)

What I expected: The image would be copied over, resized, and saved as my avatar.

"So what is your advice to me?"
"Stop doing stupid crap."

Hmm... can't say what went wrong, but as far as I know, you have to hotlink to a picture already of the size allowed in the forum, it won't crop it for you... but I don not recognize the error message...

... although I'm STILL not fully into all the functions of this new software, so I may be mistaken...

Took the liberty of cropping and uploading the avatar for you, hope its satisfying? :cheers:
