  • Moving attachements from Dbase to disk

    1.
    Gives the following error:
    We attempted to write a test file to /bijlagen, but we were unsuccessful. Please verify that the web server has write/delete permissions for this path.
    2.
    Is this restorable? So when I decide to let the attachemens get back in the Dbase instead of the disk can I do this easy?

    1. Is your server running with safe mode on? Attachments in the file system won't work with safe mode.

    2. AFAIK the attachments were never moved out of the database since the test failed.

      1. No

      2. AFAIK ?

      There was something wrong with server settings (but CHMOD was good) and the moving "worked" a little bit. All my attachements were moved out of the database; unfortunally they weren't moved to the file system so they were lost and I had to delete them all.
      Now wasn't that really bad but it's nog they way id need to go.

      I have, by test, uploaded 2 new attachements and they work well. But I don't see them in the file system. So are they in the Dbase again?

        Yes, they should be in the database.

            Hu? But in my ACP stands:

            Bijlagen zijn op dit moment opgeslagen in het bestandssysteem bij ./bijlagen
            \\
            Attachements are currently stored in the filesystem at ./bijlagen

              What's the 'profit' of what?

              If the Admin CP says they are in the file system and the attachments do show up, then they are in the file system.

                The Admin CP says the files are in the filesystem. But I don't see anay attachements in that folder.

                But new attachements are correctly showed so they are stored somewhere :s.

                  I'm experiencing the exact same problem as SoccerQuest has described with the error messge that won't allow it to be stored as a file, and I have changed the permissions to 777 and my server is not in safe mode

                    Slipperypearls, please start your own thread with all the relevant details.
                    Soccerquest, check the directory where you set the attachments to be uploaded to. Make sure you check all the sub-directories as well. If the attachments are showing up, then they are definitely there.

                      The directory "bijlagen" does not contain any subdires. N'either does it contains any attachmentfiles.

                        Honestly based on what you've said I don't see how any of this is possible. Nonetheless if you have not installed any hacks (which includes portals), fill out a support ticket at:

                        http://www.vbulletin.com/members/mem...ontactform.php

                        Be sure to include the login info to your Admin CP, phpMyAdmin and FTP. If you have installed hacks, then remove the hacks first then check and see if you still have this problem. If so, leave the default vB files in place and fill out the support request. Please also include a complete description of the problem.

                            Uuhm, before I forget.

                            Our server has special "security"-things.

                            When I have uploaded some files with FTP I have to place a file called "update" in the root directory of my server. And every 15 minutes it checks if there is a file called "update". If it's there the server will be updated and the changes will be made.

                            So nothing can be done directly.

                            But is the forum having troubles of this securty thing maybe? The folder is correctly CHMOD.

                              Yes, that could definitely cause problems if it affects php uploads. I've never heard of a server setup this way so I can't say for certain if that's the problem or not.
