I am programmatically importing images and saving them via file_save_data();
$fileContentsPath = 'http://mypathtofile.com'; $uri = 'public://myfolder/mysecondfolder/filename.jpg'; $image = file_get_contents($fileContentsPath); $file = file_save_data($image, $uri, FILE_EXISTS_REPLACE);
When I run this I get the following error: The specified file temporary://fileJ4LL4o could not be copied, because the destination directory is not properly configured. This may be caused by a problem with file or directory permissions. More information is available in the system log.
I am pretty sure my temporary directory is configured correctly and the files folder is assigned to the apache user.
If I go into the files directory and make the directories (myfolder/mysecondfolder) via command line and rerun it works correctly.
So the problem is that if the folders don't exist from the $uri path, it fails instead of creating the folders.
