Please help! cannot upload pics

Hello there!

 

I have a problem: whenever I try to upload a pic, everything seems to work out fine, but when I click on the preview button, the following message pops up: warning: no file uploaded. I've had this problem for some time now and I haven't been able to solve it so far...

I would really appreciate some help.

Thanks a lot!

if the 'pictures' actually show up at the shop front, then you can just ignore the error msg.

Thanks for answering!

But the problem remains... I cannot see the pics (red X appears) if I'm in the user mode either....any other idea, please? With the FTP program, I can upload pics....

Have a look at your admin/includes/configure.php file and see if it is correct.

Thanks!

I did, and I made a couple of changes, but nothing changed....everything seems to be correct there.

Any other suggestion please?

If you can't see them in the admin then your problem is with your admin configure.php file. If you can't see them on your store either then your problem is with both your configure.php files or the images are just not uploading which is easy enough to check.

 

Either way, even when you do fix the issue it is NOT a good idea to upload pictures that way as it requires your images directory to be 777 which is the way most hackers get into osC sites. It is best to leave that folder as 755 (the same as the others) and FTP your images to your site and then just name them in the admin so it knows what image to look for.

Thank you very much!

I checked it and the images are just not uploading, I don't know why though.

I tried to upload with the FTP program, like you said, and in that way I can upload the pics on the server. The problem I'm having is to find the "file" where I can link the manually uploaded pic to its pertaining description in the OSC software. Do you know how I can make the program recognize the manually uploaded pic? Thanks for the help.

Hi

 

Have you tried asking your hosts? I had this problem & they had to do something to enable me to see them in admin & catalog. Worth a try.

 

Hi,

Not yet, but that's probably what I'll do if I can't solve it by the end of the week.

Thanks!
