No Upload Privilegies

Check your CP and FeildFrame global url’s. You need to be shore that you work on one domain, because of security reasons (please remember that and is different domains). It’s why I recommend to setup relative path in the FieldFrame.

No Upload Privilegies : Compatible Suhosin Configuration

Below are the known configuration variables that should be looked at for your PHP configuration. These items can be flagged in either the user’s .htaccess or php.ini file, or the master php.ini file.


suhosin.mail.protect = 0
suhosin.memory_limit = 128M = 5000 = 500000
suhosin.request.max_vars = 5000
suhosin.request.max_value_length = 500000
suhosin.session.cryptua = Off


php_value suhosin.mail.protect 0
php_value suhosin.memory_limit 128M
php_value 5000
php_value 500000
php_value suhosin.request.max_vars 5000
