There are many things to look at here. First ensure that the images are indeed being uploaded. (look in the tables/products/image directory and see if the images are there.

If they are not there, check the permissions on that directory and make sure it is writable by the web server.

and

ALWAYS check your error log before doing anything else. It will tell you exactly what the problem is 99% of the time.

Steve,

I have messed up some how... I had WebAuction version 0.3.5 working with the uploading of images then Saturday I tried installing version 0.3.7 by moving files that I had added or changed from the old 0.3.5 directory (plus I made some more changes in the footer area). Finally, I decided to add a new item and the image upload now does nothing when "Save" is hit. No image is uploaded. The directories in all of WebAuction have been set to 777. I do not see any error that is related in the Apache web server log. I think I broke it... :oops:

I am running Mac OS X 10.6.8, Apache 2.2.9, PHP 5.2.6, MySQL 5.0.51. See at: W7DGB.net/webauction/index.php

Any ideas would be welcome... Thanks in advance!

Peace, David

Well setting all directories to 777 is not a good idea. In fact some installs will actually prevent you from running PHP scripts in such directories. Just set the directories for cached templates and image uploads to 777. In order to find the problem, you'll need to check the error log.

Steve,

I will set the permissions back after fixing this issue... I am not finding the error log, I guess. The web server error log has no clue to this...

I see someone else is reporting the same issue today under a new thread... hmmm.

The other issue, while it may be related, had obvious other problems with how they set their save path. See that thread for my comments.

Oh well, thanks for trying. I guess I'll stop beating my head on it for awhile. Maybe if I do something else and comeback later the answer will be obvious (I pray). :?

Well! I carefully re-did my custom changes on the fresh copy of 0.3.9 and uploading images works again... :oops:
Now to get the email registration thing to work...
