Can't Upload Media

When you click upload an error message appears or you are redirected to the wrong page.

+ Check your php settings. The post_max_size and upload_max_filesize need to be larger than the file you are trying to upload. You can view these values by going to the System Information area of your Joomla admin.

+ Check the folder entry in the folder settings: The folder entry should resemble the path to your media folder with preceding or trailing / (ie. path/to/your/media)

+ Check the permissions allow you to write to the folder where you want to upload the file.

+ Check your tmp folder setting in the Joomla Configuration and particularly the path to the folder your website is in. This path needs to match that which is returned by the Joomla JPATH_SITE constant.
