As mentioned in the title, I'm not able to upload any files in Craft4. I created a filesystem and a volume which is connected to the filesystem. In the assets-field settings I added the volume. I have no idea what I'm doing wrong. For any help I would be grateful. I'm using Craft v4.1.3

  • Is it local storage? Are you sure the volume has write permissions?

  • @mcoze Would you be able to elaborate more on your new settings? My base path is set to "@webroot/uploads" but I'm still getting the same error. Aug 15, 2022 at 10:54
  • I put a bit more of explanation in the anwer above, hope that helps

I must have looked at the screen for too long. The problem was that I didn't use relative path and url settings. https://craftcms.com/docs/3.x/sites.html#step-6-check-your-asset-volumes-settings

Here is a bit more of clarification @samroberts707 asked for: If your base path is set to @webroot/uploadsin Crafts Filesystem Settings then the Base-Url should be set to uploads, at least that is what I did.
