Do you have Installation problems with phpAlbum?

Hello people,

i have seen some first installations of this script. Some of them were not functional. As nobody asks for some support, i ask you now:) If you have any questions related to installation and using of this script just post here some comment and i will try to help you.
New version is comming soon, and there i have implemented some checks which could help you by installation. Until there, you have to ask :)
This topic is closed! If you have any questions please create new own topic for your problem. Thank you!
Have a nice day!

Sort pictures

Another Question...

001 is the first picture i uploaded and 051 is the last.

Is there a Way to show them the 'wrong way' so the newest picture is always at the beginning of the gallery ?

like 059.jpg, 058.jpg, 057.jpg, 056.jpg and so on ?

problem including phpAlbum

hello,
first of all, many thanks you for the software/support!!
I'm trying to include phpAlbum in a section calling to "include(phpAlbum/main.php)" but it gives me the typical "have to edit config_change_it.php and rename it to config.php" error...

BUT, if I access directly the phpAlbum from the explorer, it gives me no error, so I guess it must be a problem with the base directory php is using when processing it...any idea? any help would be apreciated...thanx!!

Error

When trying to install a clean copy of v0.3.1.1 I get the following error:

Why is that?

I used your very cool web installer. and all the verables look right but it says "Unable to connect to the server ftp.gussroadhouse.com" but that is the correct address and wsftp and smartftp work fine. any ideas?

.dat file permissions

I assume I am having some permissions problems with the .dat files in the data_xxxxxxxx directory because I am getting errors like this:

Warning: fopen(data_xxxxxxxx/_.dat): failed to open stream: Permission denied in /home/xxxxxx/public_html/yadayada/main.php on line 1677

Warning: fwrite(): supplied argument is not a valid stream resource in /home/xxxxxx/public_html/yadayada/main.php on line 1678

What do I need to do to fix this?

Thanks

Re: Sort pictures

Hi, unfortunatelly there is no way to sort descending the pictures out of box. But this is a good idea, changing of sort method should be possible.

Re: ERROR: unable to set write-rights to the directory cache

Hello Sharron,
this is very strange, if you created the directory, you should have rights to change the rights:) Can you say what FTP-client are you using? My be you try some other? Did you try installing phpAlbum.net with Wizard? There is no better way if you have FTP Access to your webspace. At least you could see if it gets the same error or not. If yes then you have to ask your provider why you can not set this rights. Or try it without setting the rights, may be you are on some windows and it is not even possible but the script will work. Just try something and give us feedback if you were successful.

Re: Unable to upload testfile

Hello, if you want send me your setup password for phpalbum, and your username and password for ftp, i will look at it. Till now i had never problems with uploading the file if the settings were correct. May be there is some problem with directory names or something like that...

Re: Making it look like my site.

Hello,

ther is no universal guide how to make it. The first thing is color customization, so for example color of bacground color of links and so on. One of the best way is to integrate the script with frames or iframes. Just google a little bit about it. And if you know something about HTML and may be just little bit about PHP you can create easily your own Theme. Copy the Borders or Flowing_dark directory in themes to your own directory in themes, something like My_theme. It will appear in main setup. After that you can change the files inside it so it will look like your site.

Re: Error

In new version i'm using Multibyte support ( mbstring ). There is no other way to convert filenames with special characters like München into UTF-8 string.
I will try to fix your problem so that it works also without it but not with UTF-8 support.

Re: never mind i fixed it.....

Ok, if it works, but actually both should work. No idea why the first solution is not working because this is what i put in your setup with wizard. But localhost, is also cool idea :)

Re: Fatal error: Call to undefined function line 652

Hi,

this error was already discussed in "Reporting Bugs and gettign help" forum. You have probalby old version of PHP. Never the less this function will no more be used in next version. But it would be better to upgrade your PHP because there could be more of this art of problems.

Re: No FTP-Support!

Yes!! Of course. Just use some ordinary FTP-Client for uploading photos into your photos directory. This admin section is for people which are not familiar with FTP-Clients. I don't think there are much of them, but it can happen, that for example i install phpAlbum for my father and for him would be better tu have upload function.

Re: GD is not working

Hello, something went wrong with your installation, did you do it with wizard? Or manually?
Never the less, i just repaired your settings in main setup.
There were no settings for quality and some others i had changed. You can check it.
Alsou i saw you have no support for mbstring, i changed your characterset to ISO-8859-1 may be you will change it to your prefered character set.

I will definitely have to make some checks in main setup, so people can see if something is wrong.
You can also read dacumentation on this page, it is not complet but you would not have this problems if you read it.

Bye!

Re: album order

Hi, i'm not really underestanding what you mean, with tree. If you mean ordering of galleries/direcotries you should check your ordering setting in setup.

Re: unable to change to directory

Hello,
check your photos directory on FTP setting in main setup. It should point to the photos directory on your ftp server how you see it if you logon with ftp client. In your case i assume this is :

/Gallery/photos_Isp/

don't forget the leading backslash and the last backslash.

I assume you have installed it manually, because this is normally correctly setted up by installation with wizard.

Re: Error

Hi, how could you do something like that? never seen before... How did you installed it, with wizard? I mean, main.php?cmd=album , and this is showing something from setup ... actually not possible ... You will have to write more infos regarding to what you did and how ..

Re: .dat file permissions

Hello,

_.dat file is file for directory settings of main "/" directory. There are two things you can check.

  • for data_xxxxx directory you should make CHMOD 777
  • chekc if the file _.dat already exists and do also CHMOD 666 for it.This could happen if you installed it on your local machine and just copied the whole thing on your server. If you did that, you will have to do CHMOD 666 for all files in cache and data directory.

Hope i could help you!
