In content type I added an image field.

Now when I try to add a content and upload an image, I am getting this error on page.

The file could not be saved. An unknown error has occurred.
File upload error. Could not move uploaded file.


File system setting.

Public file base URL:


Temporary directory:


Reading note about the Temporary directory:

A local file system path where temporary files will be stored. This directory should not be accessible over the web.

Since its path is located inside Drupal, I am assuming that this causes the error.

Checking the system logs:

"POST /node/add/finfeed1?element_parents=field_image/widget/0&ajax_form=1&_wrapper_format=drupal_ajax HTTP/1.1" 200 6434

PS: I have 777 on sites/default/files/temp

  • Check the disk size on your web server as a first clue. – mchar Apr 6 '17 at 12:32
  • It has allocated 1GiB size. – John Rey Tanquinco Apr 6 '17 at 12:44
  • I have struggled with something similar, and for me it was a Selinux problem. What server are you running on? – pusle May 10 '17 at 11:31
  • I once was using Mac. I manage to reinstall the site and the error gone. now I'm using Linux. – John Rey Tanquinco May 11 '17 at 12:11
