I've had a php gallery with my site for over a year with no problems. click here It's singapore opensource; I don't understand the coding; all I do is upload images to subgalleries and it automatically makes thumbnails which enlarge if you click on them. Just recently when I've tried uploading, the thumbnails work fine but when you click you just get a red cross. Try this: click here I tried the singapore forum but it seems only one person a day accesses it - and that one person said all they got was 'permission denied' (I'm getting a red X) The said check the chmod is 777. Means nothing to me but I looked at the gallery folder in an ftp program; it said 765 so I tried to change it to 777 and it said 'server does not support modifying attributes ' - er? The main site is hosted by lycos and although I can access the gallery there in thei webftp, I can't find the 'chmod' permissions thing and can't understand how the rest of it works. Please help someone!!!
the first site I made was and is hosted by Lycos and is one of those easy-peasy wysiwyg webbuilder programs. You can add to it stuff like a gallery from a selection they offer and they do all the complicated set up for you, just by you clicking a button. Fine if it works. But they offer no support for other companies' software. And now I need to figure it out myself!
OK. I think it’s almost certainly a CHMOD issue. You need to CHMOD the folder that the images are in to 777. (this means that the folder can be written to by the software). The way to do this is with an FTP program. Cuteftp for instance. You should be able to download a trial version that you can use.
Well I don't know either! The problem's only occurred in the last few weeks so whether there's a gremlin that's decided of its own accord to change the chmod, I don't know. But how I can change it back if it won't let me I don't know. I'll go back to my ftp program and look again.
Well, did as you advised - and it's working fine to me!! See if you can see the enlarged images. If you can, everyone can. So are you suggesting the punctuation has a bearing on whether it works or not? I'm going to tick this thread with fingers crossed that you've sorted me out! click here
