any program which needs files being uploaded needs the right to do so
that is normal program behaviour and no scripting error!
take the file, which I attached here, rename it to phptest.php
and load it to your server
call it in the browser
search for "upload"
it would be good to have the information for these 3 values:
file_uploads should be "ON"
that is the most necessary info
if that is set to "OFF" your hoster is crazy;=)
don't forget to delete the file at your server after using it, please
tell us the results
