I have searched these groups for related issues and have not found any answers. I have come accross an issue with running the Elgg systems. I have attempted both 1.7 and 1.8 both with same results.

The install goes just fine, using directories such as mydomain.com/elgg and mydomain.com/data.

I have no problem with that as I can repoint my domain to the elgg directory.

My problem is the Uploading Avatar. I have had the same issue on both versions that the page allows me to browse for new avatar and press the Upload button, but then i get to a page at mydomain.com/elgg/action/avatar/upload and this is just a blank white screen.

If I can manage to get past this part, the system is very promissing. This has become my only issue so far and been playing with all the other features for about a month now.

Any help is appreciated. Thanks in advance.
