I’m using Drupal 6.13, I tried to change the logo for the admin template and got this error message. A little bit of digging turned up a comment made by zbricoleur  on the Drupal.org site where he provides a working solution.

In /includes/image.inc, change line 117 from:

  if (!is_file($file)) {


  if (!is_file($file) && !is_uploaded_file($file)) {

That line above works nicely, however next up you might see the error:

The selected file  could not be copied, because no file by that name exists. Please check that you supplied the correct filename.

To get around that problem do this:


You might find it under the 'Site configuration' heading and then File System.

There you will see a box that has: Temporary Directory

c:\windows\temp and change it to the same as the line above it which will probably be


Save configuration and you're good to go.


PS. Nobody leaves a comment if I help them, please let me know if this solution worked for you…
