View Full Version : Images don't upload
03-03-2005, 03:10 PM
I just installed Pixelpost without any problems. I uploaded an image and everything seemed to work fine. However, no image showed up on the blog. So then I checked and noticed that there is nothing in either the images or the thumbnails directory. However, I was never given an error message. Under the Images tab, I see entries for the images, but they are all signaled with a broken image icon. I now tried this with several pictures, but am getting the same result.
Below is the General Info. I'd appreciate any suggestions on how to proceed.
MySQL version 4.0.20-log
GD-lib bundled (2.0.28 compatible)
Server software Apache/1.3.31 (Unix) DAV/1.0.3 mod_gzip/126.96.36.199a PHP/4.3.10 mod_ssl/2.8.19 OpenSSL/0.9.6c
EXIF Your php does not seem to be compiled with exif-enabled.
Images folder is writable, which is a good thing.
Thumbnails folder is writable.

how large are the files?

One was 100K, the other bigger. I just tried one that's 37K and am still running into the same problem.

check the image path in admin>> options...
it should be the path of the image folder when u use an FTP prog.

Thanks. You're right that the image path was wrong. I've updated that. However, it's still not working. The file still won't show up in the images directory. (Also, there is no place to specify the thumbnails directory path, right?)
Everything else seems to work just fine. Any other suggestions? :?

if there still no image in the image folder the path is not ok:)

would it not be simpler to place the thumnails and images folders in the same directory as the admin folder?
i'm pretty sure there is something inside index.php in /admin that can allow you to change this - bt ui'm not at all familiar with it.

the problem is with the path definition and none of the thumb or image paths are ok right now.
If you want to change the thumb folder it will messup all the admin/index.php and index.php and many addons.

I think it is not the problem because there are two directories
there are reasons why they are separated
the problem is mostly with the right path and that is something what I never understand: I installed PixelPost around 30 times already on different servers for test reasons and always the paths were ok
I do not know what happens, do people edit manually the image path?
That is really strange for me

first wellcome here!
Let us look go through some questions:
does your script show a blank page or everything but only no images?
did you call the script with full path/- and filename? example:
or did you call it like this:
then your server does not read index.php as index-file
if no image is stored in the image-path and no thumbnail is generated in the thumbails-directory one reason could be that the hoster does not allow to copy and move files between directories
check this with your hosters support
I am re-writing the nearly finished FAQ now :lol:
another possible reason:
the template which you selected in your ADMIN PANEL / OPTIONS is not uploaded
next another possible reason:
the language which selected in the ADMIN PANEL / OPTIONS has no language-file in the language-directory
6) always a good help would be to name us the URL of your installation so we can check out a little to give better support
Once there was also the situation that the webspace was limited and totally used, so that the disk space quota was reached and nothing more could be uploaded...
please, collect these answers and tell us, good luck!

It's working finally! The directory path is right, I'm not sure why it wasn't working a few minutes ago. But now it is.:)
On to figuring out the templates.

although it is always mysterious to have something fixed without knowing why...
so I can lock this posting, great!
