I am working on a Joomla 1.5 (running in legacy mode) and DocMan 1.4 is giving me some trouble.
Docman was working fine but we recently had to restore the site from a backup and reinstall the Joomla framework. All of the component files are identical and I am 99% sure the folder permissions are the same since the came from the backup (restored by the web host).
Now docman is returning 'error uploading - directory problem. Cannot move file' when a file is upload from both the front-end and backend. Now remember the component files came from a working set backup. So the common code fixes that appear in a google searchs don't apply here.
I am also seeing a message 'docman.config.php: Unwritable ' under configuration. Persists even when I set it to 775.
The only way that I got the upload to work is to set /dmdocuments to 777, which is not cool. I suspect that there is an overall permission problem with this Joomla install... FTP perhaps? Can anyone help me troubleshoot this?
