I was looking for a good document manager for my the admin department of my university. when i found opendocman. i was able to install it with out much hassle. but when i started creating users i found out that any user i create with the "reviewer profile" is unable to add files. but if i update the profile to admin adding files would be successfull "Please upload a valid document" this is what i get when i try to upload a file as a review user. please is there anything am doing wrong. thanks in advance.

am using it on ubuntu hardy heron,

Hmmm... looking at the source code, that error message is output only when "ec=11" inside error.php:

// file not uploaded
case 11:
$message = 'Please upload a valid document.';

There is one spot in the add.php that sets ec=11:

//can't upload empty file
if ($_FILES['file']['size'] <= 0 )

The same condition in check-in.php:

// no file!
if ($_FILES['file']['size'] <= 0)
header('Location:error.php?ec=11&last_message=' . urlencode($last_message));

Based on this brief analysis, I can't see a connection between user rights and being able to upload documents. You might check your webserver logs and see if something else might be happening.
