    I’m getting this error when I try to upload images. The permissions on assets/images/ are set to 777.

    I’m also unable to view any images already uploaded into the folder.

        It was as simple as a space before the resource path.

          Thanks, it solved my problem with uploading. I also found this post "Upload Feature Inhibited Error When Adding Files or Images in ModX". Might be helpful for others if they wanted step-by-step guide.

            I had similar problem.
            Have a webhost in which if I set the WRONG path in File Manager Path it will work, and only then.
            Though I cant get sub directories to work.

            Tried every solution on this site, to no avail.

            My dir under images was getting 0755 which didn´t work, so I tried with 0777, and it didn´t work either.

            Any suggestions?

              I know i’m dredging up an old thread, but if anyone else has this problem it is also caused if the file you are uploading is too large.

                I had the same problem and found the solution.

                The main problem is your resource path.

                Go to Reports -> System Info
                Find MODX_BASE_PATH there and copy the value (except for the last slash, you can remove it afterwards too)

                Go to Tools -> Configuration -> Interface & Features
                Find "File base path" there, it will probably be /assets/
                Copy the value of the MODX_BASE_PATH there in front of /assets/ so you get something like /your/modx/base/path/assets/
                Watch out that you don’t get a double slash with copying the MODX_BASE_PATH.

                And of course, save.

                If the problem remains, make sure that folders have proper rights (Check out the link posted before by Andrew Abogado)

                Hope it helps

                  I don't find MODX_BASE_PATH in System Info. And I think it could be a configuration and not a problem.
                  Go go Reports, clic on on "see" (to the right of phpInfo() ), and find upload_max_filesize.
                  I would like to try this, but I don't know where to set it smiley Anybody can help me please? Thanks and sorry for my english, I'm from Chile and my native language is spanish. Greetings!

                    Solved!!! smiley
                    Searching in this forum I found how to change that value (2 MB). By default 2MB is the value, so edit your php.ini (I'm working on windows with apache) and find upload_max_filesize and set a mayor value.
                    Good luck! smiley
