    1. Folder needs to be chmodded 777.
    2. Make sure .bmp files are allowed. Normally only gif and jpg.

            when you upload avatars using upload function you need to specify a path to where you want to upload it

            i.e.

            /home/username/public_html/images/avatars

            now have you chmod 777 the avatars directory using your ftp program ?

              what does that mean?

              and the /home/username/public_html/images/avatars

              home should be my domain?

                the full path is different on different hosts, your web host should of provided your with this info when you signed up

                if not

                create a file named phpinfo.php and place this code in it and post the url/link to it from your web site

                <?
                phpinfo();
                ?>

                i.e. yourdomain.com/phpinfo.php

                which will tell you your server/account paths and other info

                what ftp program are you using to upload vB php files to your site ?

                    You can put it in your forums directory, and eva2000 already told you what the contents of the file should be:

                    <?
                    phpinfo();
                    ?>

                      as steve said place the code i posted above in your phpinfo.php page

                      for cuteftp there are manuals at http://www.cuteftp.com/support/manuals.shtml

                      and do a search at www.google.com for 'cuteftp tutorials chmod' and you'll find all the how tos for using your ftp program

                      i.e.

                          That file was not designed to fix the problem. It's designed to give us the information that may help us fix the problem. Of course to do that you'll need to post the URL to it so we can take a look.

                            Here's the URL to your phpinfo.php file:

                            http://www.hiphoptechnicz.com/forums/phpinfo.php

                            Offhand I don't see anything that would cause a problem uploading. However I notice you never answered c-prompt's questions:

                            1. Folder needs to be chmodded 777.
                            2. Make sure .bmp files are allowed. Normally only gif and jpg.
                            In addition, go to:

                            Admin CP -> vBulletin Options -> Avatars

                            ...and check the Maximum Dimensions and File Size. Now do you have for these fields, and what is the size and dimension of the BMP file you are trying to upload?

                            Also, please post the 'exact' error message you get. If it really is:

                            Warning: Unable to create '..//images/[name here].bmp': Permission denied
                            ...then the double slash may be your problem. Make sure the image path in your style does not end with a slash.

                            If you still have problems after all this, then you'll need to remove all your hacks and upload the original vB files before we can go any further.

                              1. Folder needs to be chmodded 777. (???????????????????)

                              .bmp .gif .jpg and a few others are allowed
                              max dimensions are 120 and max file size is 200000
