uploading images,says access is denied

Recommended Posts

I'm trying to upload images into my database, along with data on them. The values including the image name are being stored in the db but the image is not uploading. I have used the exact same code before but with a different hosting company. The message I am getting is:

Warning: move_uploaded_file(/home/groover/public_html/images/pure.jpg): failed to open stream: Permission denied in /home/groover/public_html/admin_insert.php on line 54

Warning: move_uploaded_file(): Unable to move '/tmp/phpudG2GY' to '/home/groover/public_html/images/pure.jpg' in /home/groover/public_html/admin_insert.php on line 54

Any idea what would cause this error??

//check for required fields from the form
if ((!$_POST[uname]) || (!$_POST[pword])) {
header("Location: adminlogin.html");

//connect to server and select database
$conn = mysql_connect("localhost", "groover", "dwde909") or die(mysql_error());
mysql_select_db("groover_walshy",$conn) or die(mysql_error());

//create and issue the query
$sql = "select *from admin where uname = '$_POST[uname]' AND pword = '$_POST[pword]'";
$result = mysql_query($sql,$conn) or die(mysql_error());

//get the number of rows in the result set; should be 1 if a match
if (mysql_num_rows($result) == 1) {

//if authorized, get the values of fname lname
$fname = mysql_result($result, 0, 'fname');
$lname = mysql_result($result, 0, 'lname');

//set authorization cookie
setcookie("auth", "1", 0, "/", "grooverecord.net", 0);

//create display string
$display_block = "<P>$fname $lname is authorized!</p>
<P>Authorized Users' Menu:
//<li><a href=\"secretpage.php\">secret page</a>

} else {

//redirect back to login form if not authorized
header("Location: adminlogin.html");
header("Location: adminwelcome2.php? login=true&id=$uname");

Is the target folder for images write-enabled?

No idea. It depends on what tools your web host provides.  I change permissions on my sites through WS FTP.
