View Full Version : Upload Problems
March 14th, 2007, 09:25 PM
My site (http//www.trophypix.com) is experiencing upload problems again. I just can't seem to get a 100% stable site. I looked in the Upload directory and found 8-10 images from the past 6 or 7 days. Looks like 3 or 4 different users ran into a problem in the past week. One user said the site reported a successful upload, but the picture(s) never appears.
Please help! My users are getting frustrated.
Final question: Can I delete everything in the Upload directory? The user that reported the problem is complaining that the same ol pictures keep showing up in the Upload screen.
I'm using GD2 because I was experiencing upload problems with ImageMajick.

You will have upload issues with gd2
I would suggest using Imagemagick if it exists on the server and then be mindful of your server limitations regarding upload sizes in PHP and place in edit usergroups a restriction on the size a photo a user can upload that way they get the proper messages and do not lead to them crapping out your server's PHP where your going to get no message or nothing

Thanks Chuck, Yes I have Imagemajick.
Regarding the link you made, I had made a similar change to pp-inc.php a while back based on a similar recommendation from you or Michael. Here's the code snippet:
// set PhotoPost path, if not set set it to "."
if ( $PP_PATH )
$Globals['PP_PATH'] = $PP_PATH;
// GMM 07July2006 - Increase PHP memory //
// set PhotoPost template path
if ( $TMPL_PATH )
Will it hurt to have both? Or should I delete the 48M line and add the 60M line per your link above?
Finally, what exact question do I need to ask of my hosting provider regarding PHP upload size limitation? Is it just that simple? Shold my settings in Edit Usergroups match the answer exactly or maybe slightly smaller?
Thanks for all your help,

I would use Imagemagick and that will solve any PHP timeouts etc
As far as file upload restrictions if this is a normal PHP setup your limited to 2mb and will not be able to upload a file larger than that. I would place the filesize limit a respectible amount anything under your max filesize in PHP allowed.

was referred to this post for similar reason...
I changed to ImageMagick in the settings Global - and I just get errors trying to upload. Doing something wrong? I switched back to avoid this issue.
I don't have issues loading but others do.

You would need to verify and set the path to Imagemagick in edit config if you want to use imagemagick as your processor.
