Apologies in advance if i'm being too dumb here, new to drupal...
I'm trying to post a story with attached image file - i get the following error message/warning when i attempt to upload my image:
warning: move_uploaded_file() [function.move-uploaded-file]: SAFE MODE Restriction in effect. The script whose uid/gid is 32733/32733 is not allowed to access /tmp/tmp_u7PbFi owned by uid/gid 99/99 in /mounted-storage/home72a/sub003/sc41782-QAJM/www/drupal/includes/file.inc on line 240.
the permissions on file & tmp directories are set to 777,
is this just a safe mode issue? do i need to turn it off, and if i do so, will that leave me at risk?
I've searched around and can't find any information relating specifically to this issue, apologies if that's not the case.
I'm using windows XP on the PC & dreamweaver 8 to manage my files.
