View Full Version : admin_ping.php turned off
04-07-2006, 08:52 PM
Recently I upgraded to Pixelpost 1.5. When I tried to upload a new image no thumbnail was created. Looking around this forum I noticed that you have to turn off the admin_ping.php to get it working. So I did and the creation of thumbnails is working. My question is what is the function of the admin_ping.php and why do I have to turn it off?

I am sure you have to turn it off because it was faulty, as 1.5 is still a beta version.
This addon will ping automatically some photoblog-portals to signalize that your photoblog is updated.
I am sure this is fixed in the final reason: to be able to upload images, have thumbs created and photoblog-portals pinged ;=)
@Connie problem is in connections which provide ISPs hosting our photoblogs.
Pure connection means slow sending and retrieving data.
In result we have problem with script executation time very close or bigger then max_executiation_time PHP variable. This is why there is no more time for generating thumbnails. That is all.
PS I got my server at USA (ServerMatrix.com) and usually Im posting between 0 and 2 at night CET. At this time of day and with their very good connections (27 Gbps to outside world (http://www.servermatrix.com/network/index.html)) all works perfectly.
