Topic: Absolute path not accepted: "Notice: unable to move g1"

I am using svManager version 1.6.6, build 100420. Target is to enable a client to setup galleries with svManager and then include them in wordpress pages. I have found the tutorial about wordpress and svManager, yet I am having problems:

My version of svManager doesn't have

define('PATH_SCHEME', '');

in constants.php, but it's admin screen offers a field for

path from web root

. Thought that'll do, but it doesn't. When adding a new SV gallery, it's automatically named g1, g2 and so forth. I then try to change the relative path into an absolute one and rename the gallery folder, according to the manual (advanced).

Relative path, originally from svManager:


Absolute path as I would like it to be:


I also tried:


After changing the path to the absolute version I am getting this error message:

Notice: unable to move g1 to ../http:/


Rights on folders and files on the server are set on 777, thus this shouldn't cause the problem. I do add the trailing slash too, so this isn't the cause either. What else is there I should check and fix? Since the error message adds a leading


to the URL, I wonder where this comes from and whether it might be the problem's cause.

Thanks in advance for help,

Re: Absolute path not accepted: "Notice: unable to move g1"

The mention of define('PATH_SCHEME', ''); in the WordPress tutorial is out of date. I'll see if it can be updated.

You'll find some help in the advanced section of the support page under the heading Relative and absolute paths. Your version of svManager is covered in the grey text for versions before 1.7.1.

The Path from web root setting in the Customize screen is intended for moving galleries rather than setting paths.

You might want to upgrade to the latest version of svManager which allows you to change the type of path with a radio button on the customize screen. You can download the latest version using the same like that you received when you first bought svManager. The link is good for 5 downloads.
