Locate Original Image in Filesystem
I've had a unique request from a member.
They would like the original image posted without the watermark. I am using on the fly watermarking so the images in the filesystem are not watermarked.
I should be able to locate the image and FTP it out off the site and forward the images to the user.
Can someone help me with the process of finding the location in the filesystem?
I hate nothing more than when someone figures out the answer and then says 'Got it, thanks' :mad:
So, I figured out a method that works for me. If there is a better way, say through mysql that would be great. Until then, this is what I did.
Roll the mouse over the image and use the "Alt Text" on the image to pop-up the image name. In this case it was 'river 7/12b'. It is also displayed in the Browser Title Bar using IE. Didn't test it with FF.
Using SSH I logged into the server and navigated to the gallery/files folder.
Then I ran
find -name river*
It returned several results but enough information to locate the files I am looking for.
Normally I would imagine you could use the full filename but in this case the '/' will cause a problem so I just used the wildcard to get around that.
Anyway, thats my method.
The images are stored like so under files sorted by userid then filename
