can you check the permissions of your data and temp folder?

Also, do you get any messages when you are trying to upload data with log level set to debug?

Data folder permissions are correct. Owner is wwwrun, that is the user of the apache.
Where is the default temp directory?
Also with log level debug there are no messages in the owncloud.log

I rolled back to 9.0. Everything fine. Upgraded to 9.1.8. Everything works. Upgraded from 9.1.8 to 10.0.7 -> Same Error....
So it's not a permission problem.

Okay, so to reproduce it I just install 9.0 from packages or tar ball,

apply your config and update to 10.0.7?

That is what I did. But with my database backup from version 9.0

Can you have a look in your database and check what is configured in the table oc_storages?

There are the data dirs of the users who accessed owncloud. Maybe there is an error, and the dir in this table doesn't exist anymore.

That's the content of this table:


Does the folder /data exist?

This is an absolute path not an relative path.

So it's not owncloud/data
but root/data

Yes, this folder exists and is the data folder.
It is possible to create directorys in owncloud and they are created in the file system. Only files can not be uploaded.

hi…im also having the same problem after upgrade to version 10.5. i can create a folder but cannot upload file. before upgrade to 10.5 this problem does not happen.

does anyone have a solution on this ?
