Are the photos in the thumbs, mini, and medium folders designated by size in kilobytes for each image or how is it determined what photo goes where?
The reason I ask is because I just upgraded to 5.03 and everything went fairly smooth except I kept getting an error close to the end when converting the images over. I just finished and went through to the end to see what would happen.
Everything seems to be running fine but when I look at my data directories there are a few that seem to have some discrepancies. Some files that look like (size wise) they should be thumbs are in the root (number) directory.
In other words in data directory 500 (the root of 500) I have many files that look as though they should be in the thumbs directory (size wise), many other files look as though they should be in the medium directory (size wise) then it appears to me that large photos should be outside the thumbs, mini, and medium directories.
So I guess I just need an explanation as to how these are situated and if it is safe to manually copy files into the correct directories if they are in the wrong directory?
Can you remember the error you recieved? - if your not sure, you could try the installtion/upgrade again after restoring your photo tables backup etc, sounds like the upgrade didn't work due to CHMOD permissions not being set properly, i would restore a backup and try the install again, make a note of any errors, remember NOT to run the upgrade twice (step three anyways) and make sure you have the CHMOD on all files and dirs set to 777.
Thanks for the reply. Everthing seems to be working fine so if I don't have to do it over I would prefer not to especially since it is a fairly active community and I already have new photos, comments, etc.
Can I just move things manually for now and can someone explain where and why certain photos go into certain directories?
Is this only one file error? I would not worry about it. However check your datadir path and all data directory permissions and make sure they are 777. I would think that error is stating data directory 505/thumbs is not 777 or the file it is trying to rename and copy does not exist
