Permission Errors
« on: October 16, 2005, 01:10:25 pm »

What I did was that I wanted to change the watermark on all of my images so I just FTP'ed to my site, went to Gallery\albums\10002\, downloaded all images, changed watermark and uploaded them again. Now I can login to the Gallery but I get permission errors when I want to access different parts of the site which require admin access and I don't see the EDIT and DELETE buttons below files either :( Please help me restore permissions :S

either use your FTP client to do that (read its documentation) or open a ssh connection.

chmod -R 777 /absolute/path/to/your/albums

Sadly I get permission errors in SSH too. Here's what I get;

chmod: changing permissions of `/home/whisky/public_html/Gallery/albums/userpics/10002/5538585a.jpg': Operation not permitted

 :( :o  ???

probably an ownership issue. Ask your webhost for support.

Webhost says they have been given the default permissions after I downloaded  the images via FTP and uploaded them again to change watermark. What specific permission does coppermine need for its images? Is it possible to do anything at all now to restore everything to normal?  :( :o ??? :-\\

I'm refering to ownership (CHOWN), not permissions (CHMOD).

Permissions were changed but the issue has still not been resolved. Isn't there a way to totally restore everything back to normal without losing pictures and videos? :( I can reconfigure the Gallery again but don't wan't to lose the pictures and videos on the Gallery  ???
