Error: Attachment upload failed while moving file.

Posted by on Jan 1, 2011 in Troubleshooting

Question:
When I try to upload a file from the form attachment feature. I am getting this error “Attachment upload failed while moving file”. Any suggestions?
You may also get an error: “Attachment upload failed”.

Answer:
Please upgrade the plugin to the latest version. An older version caused this error. Older versions are not advised. Did that work?

If after updating and the problem is still there, check the permissions:
http://codex.wordpress.org/Changing_File_Permissions

Try making the folders CHMOD 0755 permissions:( 0755 works for most servers, but not all, so modify and test carefully).
WordPress version:
plugins/si-contact-form/
plugins/si-contact-form/attachments/

PHP version:
/contact-files/
/contact-files/attachments/
