Uploading pics leading to red "x"'s
« on: September 12, 2007, 10:05:24 pm »

I am *completely new* to Coppermine and a total beginner to PHP, so please bare with me.  It's very possible the solution to this is extremely easy, but I'm just that green with the program.

I installed the program just yesterday and had no problems with any of the configurations until I went to upload my images.  I uploaded through FTP (permissions set to 777, and yes, I did read all of the upload documentation and troubleshooting and looked through the other trouble topics), but when I click on "Batch add files" and click on "ok", all images come up as red "x"'s.  I click on the boxes and the image shows in a small window, but it won't show up in the program.  I've tried uploading smaller files, bigger files, and adding files one-by-one in "upload files" but it's the same problem.

I also went through the steps in "upload troubleshooting" to temporarily change my settings to view the debug problems, as well.

Any suggestions??  Thank you in advance for your time.

Can you provide a deeplink to one of the images you are trying to add with batch add ?

We don't recommend using fantastico to install Coppermine, and this is exactly why. Go into config and switch the resize method to GD2.

I went ahead and changed the resized method to GD2 then went to upload a single file to test.  This worked!!! (yea!)  Then I tried going to "batch add files" again.  It actually showed the thumbs this time of the files (yea!) when selected, but when I selected the album I wanted the files to go into and processed that, it showed the red "x" again.  When I clicked on the red "x" it gave me this message: "Unable to create thumbnail or reduced size image."


Ideas?  Progress is being made, so I'm thankful!

I just realized the mistake and it now appears to be working!  Thank you for your help (I knew it would be simple once I talked to an expert) :)

The whole point of running a support board is that questions and answers remain visible if a question has been resolved. Instead of just posting that you were able to fix your issues you should have posted what you actually did to solve your issues - for the benefit of others.

After switching the resize method to GD2, I double checked every folder inside of my albums folder to make sure the permissions were set to 777.  They were not, so once changed, things ran smoothly.  I didn't think this would be the problem after checking the permissions on the album folder itself, because on a previous FTP program I used, when I changed the permissions for one folder, it changed the permissions for all folders inside of it at the same time.  Here lay my problem, now corrected- thanks!
