View Full Version : Trying to get zip iploads to work
July 19th, 2009, 02:48 PM
I have set my Admin to:
Do you want to allow ZIP uploads? YES
Then I ftp a ziip file that is 7.8 mb to /public_html/gallery/uploads/1.
I go to my upload area and go to ADMIN OPTIONS FOR BULK OR ZIP UPLOADS
I click on UPLOAD/SUBMIT
The screen blinks and goes to my gallery homepage. The problem is that it does not unzip and process the photos. It seems to do something but then after it is done the zip file disappears from /public_html/gallery/uploads/1 and there are no new photos in my gallery.
Am I doing something wrong?

Zip files should process if you have that setting set to yes. HMM
Do you have a url and test login for me to try and try a zip?

Sure I can provide you with the info. I will not post it here though. Do you want me to use the Contact Us link and send the info that way?

Sure thats fine

I am also having trouble with zip uploads. I get a message that the file has been processed but no photos appear.
I'm curious as to the solution to attroll's problem.

You can not upload a file larger than the PHP max upload size allowed so if your file is larger then this the server DROPS the file and there is nothing to process
I would believe this to be your issue.

OK thanks. I'll look into increasing the max upload size for PHP. I believe you recommend somewhere between 40 and 60 MB, correct (this is per an earlier post)?

That may be my problem too. I have not had time to look into this any further yet. What is the max I can set my PHP max upload size to?
July 29th, 2009, 09:15 PM
The default maximum PHP upload filesize is usually 2mb
I recommend changing it to 8mb
July 29th, 2009, 09:31 PM
OK thanks. I just checked phpinfo() and my post_max_size is 24M, my upload_max_filesize is 16M, and my memory_limit is 16M (never messed with this last one and don't know if it is relevant). So now I'm back to my original problem!
If users are uploading 12 files at a time, each about 900kb, what settings should I be using, not just for zip files, but for the 12 file uploads as well??

The file restriction is per file not batchs so as long as files are not over 16M your fine.

On my standalone PP a zipped file ftp'd to the uploads/1 directory appears to "process" but no images appear in the gallery. The system also ignores the "do not delete from source" box and deletes the zip file.
zip file uploads used to work for me several iterations of PP ago, before the Flash uploader system was introduced.

Are you using the flash uploader?
Zip uploads can not be done through bulkupload which is flash or bulkuploader
You must use the http single upload as thats how zip uploads where done.
At least thats my thoughts here looking at how they are processed.

I'm using "ADMIN OPTIONS FOR BULK OR ZIP UPLOADS
Files should already be in ......."
and uploading to the upload directory using ftp
Whether or not "Use Flash uploader" is enabled in Upload Photo Options the "Image List is Processed" and "Your Image has been Uploaded Successfully" appear but no images appear in the gallery.
With Flash Uploader disabled an old style http upload of a zip file works properly.
FTP'ing the individual files to the uploads directory and using "Admin options for bulk and zip uploads" works fine.
So there would seem that it's the "Zip" part of the Admin Options upload that doesn't work.
Sorry this does appear to be the same problem as the original poster.

You can not use bulkupload thats your issue. Zip Uploads only work by uploading a single ZIP file through the regular uploader.

Well I wouldn't say that it's "our issue" when the section is headed "Admin Options for Bulk and Zip uploads ;) but I take your point. As I've said elsewhere, using the Flash uploader disables the Zip upload functionality unfortunately :(

There are quite a few things that dont work with flash uploader on like processing files via the download from url option etc
It is a users choice to use or not use the flash uploader.
The zip file thing though has always been an upload one zipfile and process meaning uploadphoto.php. It was never a bulk option so the flash upload does not change or interfere with that option.
