Permission denied when deleting albums
« on: February 28, 2006, 06:44:23 pm »

Greetings.
I am trying to remove some albums created in our Coppermine galleries. Unfortunately the install of CM was done by a former employee, and instructions are few and far between.
When I use the admin interface to delete an album I get the following message:

Directory 'albums/modbee/xfest2005/' is not writable, files can't be deleted

File: /var/www/forums/galleries/delete.php - Line: 98

I have had the permissions on the FTP server changed, and all of the image directories have been removed (and now there are broken images showing in the unwanted galleries).

I can't seem to remove the albums from the list. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

VERSION INFO :
------------------
PHP version: 4.4.0 - OK
------------------
mySQL version: 4.0.20
------------------
Coppermine version: 1.3.3
==========================

Thanks,
Eric

Make sure that directory exists and is CHMODed to allow the server to write to (ie delete) it. 777/775 usually works.

Starting the day with a slap to the forehead and loud 'D'oh!' is always rough.

Worked like a charm. Thanks.
