View Full Version : Images are uploading but not showing.
06-06-2007, 05:30 PM
I just installed pixelpost's newest version on www.galephotographic.com. When i try to upload a new image, it takes me to the "new image" page, as it should. I fill out the appropriate fields and choose a file then click upload. It goes through the process of uploading (it takes longer with bigger files) but no images are created in the images folder or the thumbnails folder and index.php remains "Coming Soon! Nothing to show. No image to show here!"
Did i miss a step during installation? The folders have the proper read/write settings.

Did you create a MySQL database?

Did you create a MySQL database?Yep, and all the proper tables are set up, too. The installation went off without a hitch as far as i can tell.

once again check the time difference betweeen YOUR time and the SERVER's time!
That is most often the reason
you can also check by FTP if the files are created in the images-folder and the thumbnails-folder
if they are for sure you have a time difference between your place and the server's time
and for that we have a fix in the option menu

It would probably be helpful if you posted the Host Info and Paths for your PP install. Go to your admin section and click "General Info", then copy everything in the Host Info and Paths section and paste it here.
If you're not comfortable posting the path info, make sure the guessed image path and the configured image path are the same. If not, you need to make sure the configured image path correct. Then check the next two lines, and make sure they look something like this:
Image Directory: OK - Can we write to the directory? YES. Current CHMOD: 0777
Thumbnails Directory: OK - Can we write to the directory? YES. Current CHMOD: 0777

I think i may have found the problem:
Guessed imagepath: /home/galephot/public_html//images/
Configured Imagepath: ..images/
The guessed image path has a double-slash (//) instead of a single one in front of the images folder. Solution anybody?
Yeah, both folders are at 0777. I checked the server time vs client time, that's not the problem. Checking by FTP is how i discovered that the images were not uploading properly.

Change your configured image path to: ../images/
See if that gets rid of the double-slash.
