View Full Version : Photo Upload Problem
12-31-2005, 08:04 PM
Hello Team -
I had a hosting company install Pixelpost today and they say they did everything correctly. However, I can't upload any photos. The URL is:
When I attempt to upload a photo, I get this message:
Warning: imagejpeg(): supplied argument is not a valid Image resource in /home/visualin/public_html/includes/functions.php on line 92
Warning: chmod() [function.chmod]: No such file or directory in /home/visualin/public_html/includes/functions.php on line 94
I have set CHMOD to 777 in images and thumbnails.
Could someone please provide some assistance? I'm sure it's something quite simple...
Thanks in advance. John

You are running version 1.4.3 of Pixelpost. Released 21 November 2005.
PHP-version 5.0.4 (Pixelpost's min requirement: PHP version 4.3.0)
MySQL version 4.1.13-standard-log (Pixelpost's min requirement: MySQL 3.23.58)
GD-lib bundled (2.0.28 compatible) with JPEG support
Server software Apache
EXIF Pixelpost is using exifer v1.5 for EXIF information.
Guessed imagepath: /home/sitegrou/public_html/~visualin/images/
Configured Imagepath /home/visualin/images
Image Directory: Does Not Exist (should be /home/visualin/imagesimages) - Thumbnails folder not writable!
You must set correct permissions on this folder or you will not be able to create any thumbnails.
Set the folder to chmod 777 (read, write and execute permissions for owner, group and world).
Thumbnails Directory: Does Not Exist (should be /home/visualin/imagesthumbnails) -
Language Directory: Does Not Exist (should be /home/visualin/imageslanguage)
Addons Directory: Does Not Exist (should be /home/visualin/imagesaddons)
Includes Directory: Does Not Exist (should be /home/visualin/imagesincludes)
Templates Directory: Does Not Exist (should be /home/visualin/imagestemplates)

please do a search here in the forum for "PHP 5"
there is a solution for this, but I do not remember so well the solution in the moment and New Year Party is just starting, guests are coming..
good luck, and siteground.com is a very good company, I am there as well!

I think you may upgrade to 1.5 Beta to be safe. many different stuff of 1.4.x wont work correctly in PHP5

I appreciate the quick replies. I've been at this for hours and must go out for a previous commitement. When I return, I'll try the recommendations. In the meantime, I would appreciate any additional help one may offer.
Thanks in advance.

After spending hours on trying to get Pixelpost to work after setting up an account today, I got the following message from SiteGround...
Unfortunately, I'm very sorry to disappoint you, but the highest permissions that we can allow on a shared server are 755 and we can't afford 777 due to our strict security policy. The 777 permissions are considred to be very malicious and vulnerable.
Thank you for your understanding on this matter. I've really read about these permissions but I was hoping that 755 will work it out.. Unfortunately, they didn't.
So... I would appreciate any ideas on a web host that supports Pixelpost and has excellent and rapid support as I'm not particularly tech savvy.

I've used Pixelpost with Dathorn and Hostgator; I would recommend both. They're inexpensive and quick with support questions. And the support here is nothing to complain about.

Thanks to all...
I'm now up-and-running thanks to some considerable help from the SiteGround folk. In the end, they were tremendous at assisting with the install.

I knew the Siteground-people are great! I am also enjoying their services!
