Need Help! Can't Upload Pictures

Postby WillSkit » 02 Jul 2009, 05:38

Hello,

I have been working with Phoca Gallery on my local computer and I love it.
However, I am now migrating my site up to my web server. I installed PG with no problems.
But now I can't upload any pictures.

I get a message saying the upload was successful. However no thumbnail image appears (only a small X),
and when I click on the image, it is blank (again except for the small X). I have checked both Parameters
and Permissions and both appear to be set correctly. I also checked that GD library is installed.

Any help is greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance!

WS

Hi, see your server if the thumbnails were created there, see ownership of files too, is ftp enabled?

Hi Jan,

Thanks for your response.
I checked for the thumbnails on server, but they do not exist.
I do have ftp enabled.

Could this be a database/PHP issue?
Is there anything there I should check?

Thanks for your help! I am a newbie with this stuff.

Okay, with more experimenting I have found a workaround.

To add images and thumbnails:
--Go to Multi-Add.
--Browse to and upload image--One at a time.
--Save image under a Category--again One at a time.
(The thumbnails are then created)
--Go to the Thumbnails folder and change Permissions on the files to 644.

Still not exactly sure what's going on, but at least I can add a pic gallery to my site now.
