| | Problems with 2.51
Here are a couple of problems I have encountered after upgrading to PhotoPost vBGallery v2.51 (for vBulletin 3.7/3.8 only) Build: 3/22/12 4:38 PM.
After reading numerous forum threads over the weekend, I assume these and other problems may be due to my version of PHP.
My server is currently configured with:
Ubuntu 10.04 LTS
MySQL Version 5.1.61
PHP 5.3.2 (released in 2010)
The first problem was with vbgallery_install.php. After uploading the 2.51 files, the vbgallery_install.php failed to run. I resolved this issue with a suggestion made by another member in this 2010 thread:
After upgrading vBGallery, "New Images on Index" or "Random Images on Index" empty on the Main Index page. Both blocks report "No Images to Display." Changing the "New Images Cutoff" and the "Random Images Cutoff" value has no effect.
In vBGallery Maintenance, when the Scan Database function reported a need to rebuild thumbnails for multiple files, I rebuilt them. This resulted in the loss of all those thumbnails. They were replaced by a single thumbnail file: _thumb.jpg. This thumbnail is now associated with all images that had their thumbnails rebuilt.
