Is the albums folder and everything writable by the script as suggested in the docs? You will have to re-apply CHMOD - see http://coppermine.sourceforge.net/manual.php#how

Joachim

P.S. Probably not related to the issue, but you should upgrade to the most recent stable release cpg1.3.2

All folders in the path were either 755 or 777 but changing from 755 to 777 on the final user directory solved the problem.

Prior to using FTP to CHMOD, I think my host must have done something because logging into cpanel I was asked for my contact email again which was strange and only done upon first login.

Thanks for the help! In time I will upgrade anyway. Everything was stable otherwise. Great script!, T ;D :)
