Joomla 1.0.12

Something seems wrong. The installation of this new version goes well, but when using it to upload new templates, components, modules or mambots, an error of “Failed to move uploaded file to /media directory” is returned - but not always. These uploads/installs work about 10% of the time.

Template upload/installs that fail this way are leaving their assorted contents (.htm, .php, css and image folders) in the root templates directory rather than a level down inside a folder named for the template.

I wish I could be more specific about which things are working and which aren’t, but I can’t seem to find any kind of pattern to the situation.

The entire problem is very odd, but this has never been an issue on Dreamhost before - just in the last several hours (since the adoption of the latest Joomla rev).

if you receive error please look at your web server error logs. You can find a reason why error occures there.
