Error uploading images into post

Forgive me for what is probably a simple question/solution, but I am unable to upload images into post. A javascript popup comes up and I choose the local file. Then I get a message "Error uploading file. Please contact the system administrator."

I have no idea what to look at to address this. I turned on debug mode and there are no errors. I looked in my apache logs and see no errors. My settings has this for images. I created the directory and chmod'ed it to 775.

FILE_UPLOAD_TEMP_DIR = os.path.join(

ASKBOT_ALLOWED_UPLOAD_FILE_TYPES = ('.jpg', '.jpeg', '.gif', '.bmp', '.png', '.tiff')
ASKBOT_MAX_UPLOAD_FILE_SIZE = 1024 * 1024 #result in bytes

FILE_UPLOAD_TEMP_DIR translates to:

>>> from django.conf import settings

And my directory with perms:

drwxrwxr-x 2 lmeadm lmeadm  4096 2012-04-17 11:10 tmp

I don't see any other file/upload related settings.
