I did that nicola….
check this page:
I did that and reuploaded the avatar, the large avatar is ok but the thumbnail doesn’t show… check the front page under groups http://ahtam.com
thanks again nicola
give permissions with this command:
chmod -R 777 blogs.dir
nicola, i already set blog.dir to 777 but still same problem,
Check the permissions and more importantly the ownership rights for the stuff in /blogs.dir/1/files/avatars/1
Everything from /wp-content down. Does your apache user have create rights in that dir chain? apache might be ‘nobody’ or ‘apache’ or something else entirely. Depends on your server setup.
burtadsit, i made sure everything under blogs.dir is 777
other than that I cannot change apache settings as i’m under lunarpages.com shared host. but please try to help me
check this page:
I had a problem with ownerships on some directories, and I’m on a shared host, so I couldn’t change them with unix commands. What I ended up doing is install a third party “File Manager” onto my server and used that to change ownerships. (I actually installed Joomla with the File Manager plugin). You just have to find a file manager that allows change of ownerships on directories. You could also email the server hosting company’s technical support and ask them to change ownerships on directories. if they’re nice, they will do it.
zanzoon, if the ownership rights is the problem then I can’t help you. egerrits’ solution may be the only one available. There’s something wrong with having to rely on a host tech support people ‘being nice’ to solve what shouldn’t be a problem in the first place. (sigh)
Try it out egerrits’ way zanzoon.
@zaanzon could you launch this command and paste bin it ?
ls -lha blogs.dir/1/files/avatars/
nicola, where exactly do i put this command?!!
ok, what i did was delete the group and recreated, now it’s all ok
