View Full Version : Images and Thumbnails location
02-12-2005, 08:36 AM
The upload of images works fine, but the Admin program is placing the images in the root directory and not in the Images and Thumbnails sub directories. The images path under Options of the Admin program points to the location of the MySQL database and thats ok.
So I think the reference to the Images and Thumbnails directories from the Admin script is wrong. During Installation I also created the Imgaes and Thumbnails directories manualy and set the correct permissions to 777.
So, whats wrong, please help me

as I said before, don't open too much threads, please
but: the script does not refer to the directories in a wrong way, if it were so all installations would be wrong
normally you can trust the script finding the right paths...
but tell us:
what is shown in the admin area in the information:
the URL of the script
the image path?
The images path under Options of the Admin program points to the location of the MySQL database and thats ok.
this sounds very strange for me as the MYSQL will never sit in a directory under the "html root", so once more it is absolutely neccessary to know your path-informations...

Sorry that I posted so many questions for the problem I have. I stick to this one. You asked for the url path and image path.
The upload of pictures doesn't give an error. The Admin script is placing the pictures not in the Image sub directory but directly under the root directory. The MySQL database works fine; all the information about the pictures is stored well. When I manually move the picture from the root directory to the Image sub directory it works fine. How can I make the Admin script do this automatically for me? As I said before, the Image and Thumbnails directories were not created automatically during the installation. I had to do this manually. So I think the problem is the reference to to Image directory from the script.
I hope you can help me, because I really like to use this fantastic software soon

if this is what is written in the OPTIONS/Image-Path, and pixelpost is installed at
then try to change the image-path to:
the images-directory must always be one level below the main-directory where the index.php is situated
