I cannot seem to get my avatar to upload to this sites profile. It is small enough. I also cannot embed an image in the forum. DOn't know why as I am loged in as a valid user and have both images in photobucket.

Any advice?

UPDATE: I found a way to fix the image embedding of my posts. Still no avatar.

For your avatar, browse to the image on your hard drive, not the web.

Please try again and report success or failure.

A month or so ago a disk drive on our server failed. Rather than replace the drive, I replaced the whole server, and installed a fresh version of the OS (Fedora 12, for now). It seems I didn't install all necessary packages. In particular, we needed the 'php-gd' package to be able to process images.

There may be other missing packages like this, or file permissions that are not right (though I tried to find and fix all that I could). Sounds like we may need a shake-down cruise to check the server...
