Can't mkdir with PHP on Apache server and code throws no errors....

I have a fairly simple script that creates a directory depending on the text entered in a field. But the mkdir will not work. It works on our local test server and another server we have but it will not work on the Verio VPS server I am working on.

I can't mkdir or upoad a file using php.. it does not  throw any errors and enteres the information in the MySQL database just fine. It just won't mkdir or upload.. The script follows through just fine and gives no errors.

I have checked the php.ini and uploads are on and size is fine. Even when I dumb the script down to just

mkdir ("newdirectory");

It wont work.

Any thing I may be missing?
$uploaddir = $_POST["room"];
$uploaddir2 = "'" . $_POST["room2"] . "'";
$pathway = ("'" . "/backoffice/rooms/" . $_POST["room2"] . "'");
$docsdir = $uploaddir . "/docs";
$projecto = $_POST["project"];
mkdir($uploaddir, 0775, true);
mkdir($docsdir, 0775, true);

Did you try to set chmod 777 for the folder that you try to create folder in ?

What kind of security risk can I expect from a chmod 777?
