I am trying to import products using magmi. But it cannot create directories to copy images. I am getting this error.

Image attributes processor v1.0.25 - error creating media/catalog/product/f/a: 2,mkdir() [function.mkdir]: Permission denied

The directory media/catalog/product/ has 777 permissions but it does not solve the problem.

  • Hi Tasawer, can you give us the exact error that you're receiving? It is likely to be a permission error. Using 777 probably will solve the problem, but there will be a more precise answer. – JamesAllwood Mar 27 '14 at 8:24

  • do the subdirectories exist and do they have the same owner/permissions as the catalog/product directory? – David Wilkins Mar 27 '14 at 18:28
  • all available sub categories have 777 permissions, but looks like magmi is creating some as well. – Tasawer Khan Mar 27 '14 at 19:44
  • How did you solve it exactly? Can you list the steps? I can't seem to get it to work. I'm having the same issues. – user12432 Jul 22 '14 at 6:26

I solved this by putting

Filesystem Path to magento directory: ../../

    In global Magmi settings you can set Magento path – turson Nov 7 '16 at 17:48
