TOPIC: Unable to create folders in media manager

Unable to create folders in media manager 2 years 2 months ago #37574

Issue error message -You do not have permission for this request /administrator/index.php?option=com_media&task=folder.create&tmpl=index
I am unable to create folders in Media Manager of Joomla 2.5
I have installed com_admintools-2.a3-core.zip and problems still exists after permissions fix was ran
Hosting company is checking their end for possible system problem.
However, are there any known problems from installing a newer version of Joomla in a sub directory of the earlier 1.5.25 version?

I haven't heard of any problems yet. I'll test this out on one of my test sites and see if I can recreate the problem.

I tried it on two different sites with no problem. Check everything again.

1. are you the superadmin or a user level that has permission to upload?
2. any illegal characters in the folder name?

The other possibility is that the folder is owned by someone other than the user. Ask your hosting company to check on the ownership of the folder as well as the permissions.

So far no one else has reported this problem that I know of.

Let us know what happens.

What is your folder permissions set to in htaccess?

I upgraded to 2.5, went in media manager, and can create folders just fine. So I think something might be conflicting to cause the setting to change?
Warm Regards,

I am logged in as super user.

Permissions are set - 755

The new 2.5 website is in my website's public_html http/unix-directory

As for ownership of folders - I am creating a new website.
Some of the same content category names (folders) are in the 1.5.25 website- could this be the problem?

Hi pjoiner,

No, you can have practically an unlimited number of sites in subfolders.

What Joomla version is the new site? Use Admin Tools to reinstall (full reinstall) the latest version for it and that should hopefully correct any folder and file ownership issues. Here's the tutorial for it:

Hi pjoiner,

There's no need to uninstall. Please just follow the tutorial and it will auto-reinstall it for you.

Kind regards,
Nick

FINALLY an answer - this may happen to someone else on a simplescript install of Joomla 2.5
We commented out this from the .htaccess file inside of public_html

This was what was breaking it.

## Disallow visual fingerprinting of Joomla! sites (module position dump)
## www.slideshare.net/brianteeman/hidden-joomla-secrets
## Improved to work more efficiently and handle template
## and tmpl query parameters
RewriteCond %{QUERY_STRING} (^|&)tmpl=component [NC]
RewriteRule .* - [L]
RewriteCond %{QUERY_STRING} (^|&)tp= [NC,OR]
RewriteCond %{QUERY_STRING} (^|&)template= [NC,OR]
RewriteCond %{QUERY_STRING} (^|&)tmpl= [NC]
RewriteRule .* - [F]

Thanks for sharing that. You've helped a lot of people.

There will probably be more obscure problems with 2.5, we'll all be learning together.

Cheers,
Ed
