Title: Flash Driven Upload wont work
Post by: profili on April 13, 2011, 01:45:25 am
After server move I'm facing a problem with my Coppermine driven gallery.
For some reason the flash driven upload mode is not working. I get the message "Impossible to move".
Although the simple upload mode is working just fine.
Any idea how to solve this?

Thank you.

In my gallery the anonimous users CAN upload files. You can test it by yourself.

Enable troubleshooting settings
If you are experiencing issues with coppermine's upload process, temporarily change your coppermine settings as suggested below to get more detailed error messages. This applies to all upload methods, not only HTTP uploads.

Details
Even if you have issues with batch-adding pics (or any other uploading method), you should perform the steps mentioned below that check http uploads, as http uploads are the most basic upload method that needs to work under all circumstances.
If you're going to request support on upload issues on the coppermine support board, you're requested to perform the steps mentioned below in detail.
When troubleshooting uploads in CPG 1.5, you are advised to activate 'Debug mode' in the config console. Changing this setting negates some of the error masking done in the multiple upload setting. This will allow you to access more detailed error messages.

■Log in as admin
Go to your coppermine page and log in as admin
■Set "Default upload method" to "Simple"
•Go to the config screen•Scroll to the section "User settings" and expand it by clicking on it•Set the Default upload mechanism to "Simple - one file at a time"•Scroll to the bottom of the page•Save the new settings by clicking on "Save new configuration"
■Enable "debug mode"
•Go to the config screen•Scroll to the section "Maintenance settings" and expand it by clicking on it•Enable debug mode for everyone by clicking on "Yes: Everyone" in the line "Enable debug mode"•Leave display of notices switched off - if the checkbox "Display notices in debug mode" is ticked, un-tick it (notices are only meant for developers - if you have idea what they mean, leave them off permanently)•Scroll to the bottom of the page•Save the new settings by clicking on "Save new configuration"
■Go to the http uploads page by clicking on the "upload file" link in the main coppermine menu
The http uploads page will be available for you as admin at any time. This is not the case though for non-admin visitors of your gallery: it depends on the permissions you assign them if they will have the upload file link in the menu.
■On the upload file screen, choose an album from the "Album" dropdown
If you don't have an album you can pick from the list, you haven't created an album yet. You have to understand that you need at least one album where your upload can go to. Go to the album manager and create at least one album first, then try again uploading.
■Click the "Browse..." button and navigate to a small, known-good jpg-file on your hard drive.
Don't assume that any image will work - the term "known-good" in this case means that you should use an image that already has been processed by coppermine to make sure it is a file that coppermine can handle - this can best be achieved if you download an image from the coppermine demo on the original coppermine home page.
■Submit the form by clicking on the "Upload file" button
By submitting the form you start the actual upload process - everything you did before were just preparations.
You should try using http uploads, even if you experienced troubles using another upload method. You should get a more detailed error message if something is wrong that tells you what exactly goes wrong with your uploads. If the error message doesn't mean anything to you, search the support board for the error message you get.

If you don't get an error message at all, you probably have overloaded the server with previous attempts - please review the server-sided limitations that might apply for you.

Post by: Αndré on April 14, 2011, 10:17:55 am
I can see a code difference when we try to move the file for the html and the swf uploader.

For html upload we use
Quote from: db_input.php
if (!move_uploaded_file($superCage->files->getRaw("/userpicture/tmp_name"), $uploaded_pic)) {

for swf upload we use
Quote from: upload.php
if (!(move_uploaded_file($superCage->files->getRaw("/Filedata/tmp_name"), $path_to_image))) {


I don't know if it's intended or necessary, but feel free to test it on your gallery.
Title: Re: Flash Driven Upload wont work
Post by: profili on April 14, 2011, 02:11:43 pm
In upload.php I replaced
if (!(move_uploaded_file($superCage->files->getRaw("/Filedata/tmp_name"), $path_to_image))) {
with
if (!move_uploaded_file($superCage->files->getRaw("/userpicture/tmp_name"), $uploaded_pic)) {

But the problem still persists.

That will of course not work. Try to replace it with
Code: [Select]
if (!(move_uploaded_file($superCage->files->getRaw("/userpicture/tmp_name"), $path_to_image))) {
If that also won't work it's almost impossible to direct you through the debug process. Either you have to debug it yourself, or I'd try to find out what's going wrong if you can create a test gallery for me on that server where I have ftp access.

Nope. Don't work.

I can give you ftp access to galsh.com but I need first  contact address from you.

Same problem after update to 1.5.16.
Flash upload doesn't work, standard - works perfectly.

I knew I had something like that somewhere on my to-do list. I'll check that soon.

Please disregard my posts regarding the $superCage->files->getRaw differences. The values are different because they are related to the form field names.

I just uploaded using the flash uploader and it seems to work (admin approval is enabled).

I'd properly chmod and chown the albums folder and it's subfolders.

On http://www.galsh.com/ I still get the "Impossible to move" error message. Have you successfully uploaded a picture to that gallery?

I have as guest. It should be in the approval queue.

Edit: That's why I suggested chown/ chmod as one folder seems to work and the users dirs seem to have issues.

Edit2: Tried again and it fails... strange

That's why I asked, as I also tried to upload as guest.

Please start a thread of your OWN detailing exactly what is wrong. Please read the docs (A link to the section you need to read and a copy of what you need to read is posted in the first few posts in this thread) and do EVERYTHING suggested in those docs. We need all that information and your gallery setup in a particular way so we can test and help.

Please try to find out similarities of that hosts, as the flash upload works as expected for a lot of people on a lot of different server settings. Do you tried with a complete clean installation (i.e. no configuration settings, no theme change, no plugins, ....)?

It may be a frequent problem but the issues are almost always different and as Andre suggests, are often host related. You solution is almost certainly going to be different from the OPs.

We ask you to start your own thread for a reason. This is fully explained in the rules you agreed to obey when you signed up to the forums. One of the reasons is it is hard for us to follow multiple different issues in one thread. The OP's problem was after a server move, yours is after an update so different causes. In additon we need the information we requested in the docs also linked to and quoted in this very thread. That is to help us help YOU. We do not ask simply to be a pain. It really is almost impossible for us to help if you do not provide the information we need, Your requests for help earlier in this thread were ignored because you ddn't follow our rules, If you want my help please do as I asked, start your own thread, setup the config as requested in the docs and provide all the information requested in the docs. Impolite responses such as yours really are not needed and can often mean we are less likely to help you.

Hello all!
I see that this topic is old, but because there are no answers i will post one that fix this problem in my case.
Because i have moved my gallery from one server to another with different configuration, of course there are problems with permissions. If i upload the picture via normal way one by one there is no problem, but if i upload it through SWFUpload the error is "Impossible to move". Then i recheck my permissions on directories in albums/ and have to chmod 777 edit/ direcotry and the problem is resolved.
I write this with hope to help someone.

That is quite normal. Some servers setups need the albums folder set to 777 for any other script to have write access or the ability to creat files and folders. At least we are seeing the end of PHP daft safe mode now.

All that is outlined in the docs - http://documentation.coppermine-gallery.net/en/install_permissions.htm
