I am having trouble with the FTP facilities in my Joomla install. I can install components and modules with no problem since I enter the FTP login info at the top of the module or component install page.
The problem comes up when I am trying to use a component (FrontPage SlideShow) which requires that I tell it where to upload the images from. The upload process of course uses FTP but doesn't give me the opportunity to enter the FTP login info. So the component errors out and gives me the message "Image upload failed".
So I went to the global config settings in the backend and you can see in the attached screenshots what happens when I try to save the FTP config in global settings.
I even edited the configuration.php file and hardcoded the ftp login parameters and still... no uploading. And I can't save the FTP parameters in the global settings. It is almost like there are two configuration.php files.
Can someone help me get the built-in Joomla FTP working correctly?
