I have ckeditor and imce installed. It works PERFECT for the very first account created with my drupal installation, but I cannot get the file browser to work for ANY other users.

I created an admin role and checked every single permission. I also went into the ckeditor settings and made sure admin was checked under "basic setup". Under the "file browser settings" I have IMCE selected for everything.

When a user with the admin role tries to upload a file through the ckeditor file browser, they see a page that says "Access Denied. You are not authorized to access this page."

Anybody have any suggestions as to what I may be doing wrong here?

I do not see that you mentioned that you gave Role-profile assignments to admin role in the IMCE settings (admin/settings/imce). Also might check that the admin role has permissions for file type you are uploading in the upload settings (admin/settings/uploads)

That was actually the problem. I overlooked those settings. Thank you!

hi guys. great to find this post! have same issue for new site just gone live. however, when trying to amend profile for editor it appears i can not change the default directory when trying to add new profile for editor. the existing directory appears hardcoded for the development site (i.e. sites/develdirectory/files) but i now need to change this to the live site directory (i.e. sites/livesite/files). adding a new profile also does not give option for new directory. any ideas? thanks.

Problem solved! default directory changed through: admin/site configuration/file system/file system path.

However, still have problem of 'editor' being unable to access ('access denied') images when selecting 'browser' from CKEditor in edit mode. I have given user1 permissions in admin/setting/IMCE but still no go. Any ideas? Thanks

We have another Problem with this combination. A User creates a page an integrates a picture - works fine. If the user wants to edit this Page imce has Problems reading the folder structure an jumps into arbitrary folders an the user gets an Error like this: "An HTTP error 04 occured. /imce?jsop=navigate&dir=." This happens with every browser, except with IE8 and IE9
