Error message when trying to modify a user profile

When I try to modify a member's profile and click on Options I get this:

can't open directory (path name)
please inform the administrator of this forum that
$facesdir setting must be fixed immediately
Verbose: no such file or directory

(except there is: w/permission 755)

Any ideas about what this is about? thank you!

Hi,

It sounds like the absolute path to the avatar directory is wrong.

Check that you have the right path in Admin center => Path Settings => Avatar Dir:

No, the directory is right, and does exist, with the correct permissions. Further investigation has shown that the Perl routine Profile.pl will run correctly, and open the avatar directory, when not run from the Web as a .cgi script. Yet the permissions seem correct. So I'm at a loss as to why the call to opendir fails.
