    I’m working on converting our site to Joomla and moving it to a new hosting location. So this site is “live” in the sense that it’s addressable, but it’s not the “real” site.

    Real site: http://www.vvfh.org

    New site: yyy.specialforcesphotos.com

    I installed Easy File Uploader and Easy Folder Listing Pro. The latter is exactly what I wanted. Great app. The former has been giving me fits.

    Technical details: FreeBSD 8.4, PHP 5.4.4, Joomla 3.4.3, Joomla Platform 13.1.0 Stable , MySQL 5.6.24, Apache 2.2.21

    I have the DirectPHP plugin installed to allow php in articles.

    Easy File Uploader displays this:

    PHP Version: 5.4.4.

    FILEINFO_MIME_TYPE is defined.

    finfo_open is callable.

    finfo_file is callable.

    finfo_close is callable.

    mime_content_type is callable.

    This is a NON-Windows OS: FreeBSD.

    escapeshellarg is callable.

    exec is callable.

    shell_exec is callable.

    Even though exec is callable according to Easy File Uploader, it is in DirectPHP’s block list, so I removed it.

    Here’s the upload page:

    http://yyy.specialforcesphotos.com/research/upload.html

    When I login and attempt to upload a file that is not in the permitted mime types list, I correctly get an error message:

    ERROR: The uploaded file type is not permitted.

    MIME detected by PHP: (application/pdf)

    MIME detected by Browser: application/octet-stream

    But, when I try to upload a permitted type I get this error:

    Warning

    Warning: Failed to move file!

    There’s nothing that appears helpful in the apache error log:

    [Wed Jul 08 18:23:32 2015] [error] PHP Strict Standards: Only variables should be assigned by reference in /usr/home/sherman/Sites/yyy.specialforcesphotos.com/modules/mod_easyfileuploader/elements/easymoorainbow.php on line 149

    [Wed Jul 08 18:23:32 2015] [error] PHP Strict Standards: Only variables should be assigned by reference in /usr/home/sherman/Sites/yyy.specialforcesphotos.com/modules/mod_easyfileuploader/elements/easymoorainbow.php on line 110

    I created a php.ini file in the root of the web site and entered one line:

    error_reporting = E_ALL

    I assumed that the web server is restarted daily after the logs are turned over, but that may be incorrect, so I’m going to ask the admin to restart Apache, just to eliminate that possibility.

    Any other ideas about what might be wrong would be appreciated. I do not have root on this server, so I have to work through the admin to get issues outside the website resolved. If you need any additional information, let me know.

    Never mind. The problem was file permissions. The web server couldn’t write to the directory. It’s working fine now.
