View Full Version : cant delete comment and images not removed from data folder
November 30th, 2006, 01:11 AM
Got a rouge/orphan whatever the hell you want to call it comment hanging around that i cant delete. Tried everything I can think of.
Also when I deleted all the photos, I found them (and their respective folders) in the data folders, which didnt get deleted.

You can not delete that comment cause there is no photos.
Did you by chance by mistake upgrade and mess up the pictures then try to do a scan database to rebuild thumbs?
You would need to empty the comment from the comments table through PHPMYADMIN.
EMPTY TABLE pp_comments
As far as images still remaining in your data directory did you see any errors when you deleted photos? That would seem to me like a permissions thing. We issue an unlink command when you delete a photo to delete the thumb medium ans main image. Check your server logs and see if there is any info in there that can assist us with this matter

I realized only after the photo was deleted that the comment needed to be deleted first or at the same time, now I know. No didnt make any changes to the server or files since Michael P last 'fixed' it (for the other issue).
Got lazy on setting all the permissions prior to utilizing the software. That is no doubt the reason for the folders/images not getting removed. Empty table worked. Thank you Chuck. Learn something new each day. :)
