OK, thanks for setting me up with Ninja status on the Wiki, I'm easing myself into updates, but have come across a problem when uploading images.

Internal error: Could not create directory "temp/5/5b".

I can get the image to upload if I tick the 'Ignore any warnings' option, however, when I come to use the image as a thumbnail, I get the following:

Error creating thumbnail: Unable to create destination directory.

Image details are: http://wiki.xbmc.org/?title=Image:Howto_display_py.png

I got some info from #xbmc, so far as to say it looks like we're running on a unix type setup, so I can only assume there is some kind of permissions issue, or disk space issue on this filesystem.

Found this link:

http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Project:Su..._directory

But it appears to point toward a more Windows based issue.

Any chance someone can have a look for me?

Alternatively, I'm a Unix Admin by trade, so not too sure what the security is around getting a unix login to help with investigations like this.

Thanks,
