Ok, I jsut enabled FTP uplaods and uploaded a large video file. Now what do I do? Am I jsut being stupid? I cant seem to figure this out.
I think I have it configured right. The folder I uploaded to is Chmod 777 :confused:

If you did this:
FTP & Bulk Uploads:
If you plan to allow some of your users to upload files via FTP, you will first need to make sure that your 'FTP User Folder Path' setting (listed under the 'Modify Settings' link under your 'vBa Gallery' options in your Admin CP) is set to the full path to your '/gallery/users' folder.
You will then need to create a new folder under your '/gallery/users' directory and name it according to that user's userid (so if the user's userid was 5, you would simple create a new folder called 5 under your '/gallery/users' directory.
Lastly, you will need to create a new FTP account on your server for that user and make sure they have access to the newly created folder to upload their files to.
And if your usergroup has "Can upload images directly from server" set to "Yes".
Then go to the Upload screen and skip down to the part at the bottom where you can check the box to add the files from your FTP folder.

This is working but I have a small problem, when I choose to add the files from the directory, the system does not create the thumbnails, but the original images get insterted properly (without thumbnails).
Any ideas why this is happening?

Hmm, interesting, the thumbnail image is there but the security attibutes is 0, so nobody has access to the file. So it must be a gallery problem I think, why would it create the thumbnail from FTP upload without any permissions? When you regularly upload an image the thumbnail security is correct.

Very interesting, when I want to delete some of those messages I get these errors

Would you mind submitting a support ticket via the Members' Area here so I can have a look at things?

I just did. FYI I changed back the bulk upload options, but it didn't fix it.
