[Solved]: The Correct Sequence Of Deleting All Images
« on: July 02, 2008, 12:00:53 pm »

Hi folks,

I am coming fresh from reading Documentation and FAQ to find how to correctly delete ALL pictures (thumbs, intermediates, full size) and eventually I read this message: "If you really must remove the intermediate sized pics, search the mods and hacks board in the coppermine forum to learn how." So here I am asking for an advice  :)

What would be the correct sequence of actions? I understand that this is to be done through Admin Tools. Shall I first delete Intermediates or Original size? Should I also delete file titles or anything else from the offered options? How about thumbnails? Do I delete them stright from my FTP client?

The guy who made watermarks, cocked it up so I have to remove everything but I don't anticipate reinstalling the CPG and want to avoid problems with MySQL tables.
Thank you.

Just delete the albums from within Coppermine. No need to go into admin tools.

I said "Allez!" too soon. Unfortunately all my databases are gone  >:( When I do any search, it just says the databases are corrupted.

I had to do it through Admin Tools. Now I have to reinstall everything!

You won't get any support unless you restore the "Powered by Coppermine" footer, see http://coppermine-gallery.net/demo/cpg14x/docs/index.htm#copyright_additional_preservation

Argh, sorry... That was not me - there's this other guy ferretting around.

My first negative carma! I have always known you would give it to me eventually. Thank you also for "giving" positive carma on occasions when I provided solutions to other people's problems!  :-[

You'll only be allowed to post here after having restored the tag.

Well, I did restore the link.

I switched to the debug mode and found the error. It somehow didn't know how to sort the pictures in thumbnails.php any more. I restored the "Default sort order for files" from thumbnails config, saved, selected the option I needed and saved again. Voila! It's working again...

I can't perform a compare, as I don't know your real name, and frankly: I don't care. If you want support, you have to meet the requirements. The only thing we ask for is the presevation of that tag. I'm not ready to argue about this, nor will I perform a whois lookup or similar.
