Topic: Strange inconsistant thumbs permissions problem
Well....this one has me utterly stumped!
Having got svmanager and sv pro working perfectly, I let my client loose on it.
He reported that after uploading images (with no errors, and image thumbs visible within svmanager), none of the images he uploaded appeared in the actual simpleviewer gallery - only "X"s where the thumbnails should be.
I took a look on the server itself and found that while the images had the correct 644 permissions, the thumbs were 600, hence the problem. I was puzzled, because it had worked perfectly for me.
So I tried uploading a single image again myself using svmanager. Low and behold, the thumb was 644 and all was well.
I then deleted it and uploaded it again.
Mysteriously the thumb was 600 this time and therefore not visible in simpleviewer!
I renamed the file and uploaded it again. 644 this time, and all well!
I deleted it and reuploaded. 600 this time.
Doing a re-build makes no difference.
In other words, I'm seeing inconsistancy in terms of the permissions given to the uploaded thumbs - but not the actual image files.
The permissions and ownership on the actual gallery image and thumbs folders are indentical. They were not 755 but they are now, but that makes no difference.
I'm utterly mystified. Utterly! Any suggestions?
