I installed Mahara 1.4.1 from php5.0.45 mysql 5.2.6. Everything is working fine except for one thing:

If i upload an image file for a image block i get: "The file you uploaded was not the correct type for this block." The image was uploaded correctly. I can add it to the portfolio as a download block. Furthermore uploaded images are not identified as such: Image->myFiles->Home in the Imageblock-Configurator always states: "No files found".

Any ideas?

Thank you very much for help of any kind.

Hello Christian ,

Do you have GD installed and set up on your server?

I am sorry.

The only things I can think about your problem, is to be certain, your file are named with the .extention and are from the right formats Mahara accept (gif, jpg, etc) [by the way etc is not a format :-) ].

A part of that, I think you should contact Mahara developers directly.

Sorry about this.
