[SOLVED][Drupal FCKEditor] The server didn't reply with a proper XML data. Please check your configuration.

"The server didn't reply with a proper XML data. Please check your configuration." A few Drupal users who have configured the FCKEditor to use file uploading using the built in file uploader received this error message when they clicked on the Browse Server button. If you find the same error message in your Drupal website then continue reading to get it solved.

Here is the cause and the fix of the error message in Drupal FCKEditor

  • Most of the time the error occurs because certain web hosts deny the execution of files write-able by group (Files with permission - 777) as a security measure.
  • FCKEditor by default has the same permissions - 777.
  • So the fix would be to change the FCKEditor permission from 777 to 755.
  • Some users have also reported that increasing the PHP memory limit also automatically solved the problem.

Hope that helps.
