problem with squirrelmail


i post this thread after alot of searching in google and our forum linuxquestions.org but i didnt find a soltuion even if there are alot of the same questions,

when i try to attach a file in squirrelmail it gives me this error :
Could not move/copy file. File not attached

in my php.ini line upload_tmp_dir is uncommented and pointed to :
upload_tmp_dir = "/var/spool/squirrelmail/attach"
file_uploads = On

and the rights o n the directory are set to 755 and


drwx----w- 3 root root 4096 jan 28 18:13 ..
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 14 mar 2 15:31 *
drwxr-xr-x 2 apache apache 4096 mar 2 15:31 .

is this problem caused by apache or compatibility between apache and squirrelmail ?
any help will be appreciated ...

I didn't have to modify php.ini to get Squirrelmail working on my system. In my squirrelmail/config/config.php I have $data_dir and $attachment_dir set. These directories look like this:
Code:
$ ls -l /var/spool/squirrelmail
total 8
drwx-wx--- 2 apache apache 4096 2008-02-06 10:14 attach
drwxr-xr-x 2 apache apache 4096 2008-02-29 12:30 data
The output of your ls command is a little confusing. Are you saying that you have permissions of 702 on /var/spool/squirrelmail? Why is that? Mine is:
Code:
$ ls -ld /var/spool/squirrelmail
drwxrwxr-x 4 root root 4096 2005-06-26 21:55 /var/spool/squirrelmail

What/where is the file you are trying to attach, what are the permissions of this file, and which user are you trying to attach as. Is this a system user or virtual?

Does the user that you web server (Apache?) is running as (on my system the user is called apache) have rights to the /var/lib/squirrelmail/prefs and /var/spool/squirrelmail/attach directories?
