View Full Version : Upload Folders
January 24th, 2008, 09:21 PM
I do not allow anyone FTP access to my server but I have seen a few pictures in the users folders. Can you tell me why these images are in the users download folders even though they are showing in their gallery for viewing? Is it okay to delete these files?

It is okay to delete those files under uploads. Any files there are just unprocessed files that have not been uploaded yet or users got stuck on.

I have another question, but let me search and see if it has already been ask and answered, if not I will post it.

piggybacking on this question, chuck - can you delete the folders as well? we have over 10,000 and it slows us down a bit...

Sure you can delete anything under uploads as long as the uploads folder is 777 when a user uploads again their folder will be recreated.
