View Full Version : Photopost directory question
March 28th, 2008, 08:50 PM
Hi, I have the following two directories under my photopost directory..
The Data directory has approx. 650 meg while the uploads directory has about 134 meg.
What's the difference between the two and can I remove the files in the uploads directory?

The data directory is where your photos are stored. The uploads directory is a temporary area where pics go during the upload process. It should be empty if no uploads are happening at the time you look at it. If not empty I believe it can block further uploads from what I read on here.

The explanation above is correct data is your photos and uploads is the temp area your photos are uploaded before processing. If you have unclear uploads then you have unprocessed photos. Maybe users are having trouble with timeouts and not telling you. You can safely delete all directories under uploads but do not touch data in any way.

Thanks for the responses... This will clear up some drive space but now it also leads to another question. There are a few files in here which are a bit over 1.5 meg. I thought (and correct me if I'm wrong) that photopost would resize these things. What if I wanted the uploaded images to not exceed say 250k? How would I do this?

yes we can resize them but the question here remains did the user leave before they where processed or did they try uploading and the process was aborted because the server freaked out? There are tons of threads if you search for ini-set that will help increase php memory if the later is the issue.
