Uploading images permission problem

Uploading images permission problem

I am having problems with Network solutions permissions on uploaded images. I can go in and change them but would certainly prefer if they were uploaded with the correct permissions when creating or updating a product.

I have followed the instructions in this thread and it works for the product_insert page but when I get to the code for the product_update page I cannot find it in my code. Is this code for PS4?

I am using PS301
permission needed seem to be 0644 as it worked on the product_insert page, although it look like 0664 in my file manager? go figure?

Can I get the code needed to change image permissions as they are uploaded on the Product_update page please?

thanks very much,
Nancy

This post in that thread gives the code change needed for the update page:
showpost.php?p=76280&postcount=11

Yes, I saw that BUT

I can't find that code in my page. I thought perhaps the code in our reference page was code for PS4 since the user in this thread had just upgraded a while before that particular post? (during the course of the conversation)

I need the code for PS3

thanks Nancy

Just a reminder that This is still unanswered??
Jason? Could you let me know what code to use here. when I update a product the image is going up with the wrong permissions and I have to go in and change it manually.

OK, you are right. it wasn't difficult to figure out but I was afraid to play around with the code.
The difference between the code for PS3 and PS4 is simply that PS4 has an additional image to be added which was why the entire code block could not be found.
I just added the chmod statement to the 2 images and it works.
Just in case someone else comes along with this problem I will paste the code changes here.
In PS3 make these changes to the Products_Update.php in the Admin folder
find this code:

<?php
WA_DFP_SetupUploadStatusStruct("WA_UploadResult1");
if($_SERVER["REQUEST_METHOD"] == "POST"){
WA_DFP_UploadFiles("WA_UploadResult1", "ProductImage", "2", "[NewFileName]_[Increment]", "true", $WA_UploadResult1_Params);
}
?>
<?php
WA_DFP_SetupUploadStatusStruct("WA_UploadResult2");
if($_SERVER["REQUEST_METHOD"] == "POST"){
WA_DFP_UploadFiles("WA_UploadResult2", "ProductThumb", "2", "[NewFileName]_[Increment]", "true", $WA_UploadResult2_Params);
}
?>

and change it to:

<?php
WA_DFP_SetupUploadStatusStruct("WA_UploadResult1");
if($_SERVER["REQUEST_METHOD"] == "POST"){
chmod($WA_DFP_UploadStatus["WA_UploadResult1"]["serverDirectory"], 0644);
WA_DFP_UploadFiles("WA_UploadResult1", "ProductImage", "2", "[NewFileName]_[Increment]", "true", $WA_UploadResult1_Params);
chmod($WA_DFP_UploadStatus["WA_UploadResult1"]["serverDirectory"]."".$WA_DFP_UploadStatus["WA_UploadResult1"]["serverFileName"], 0644);
}
?>
<?php
WA_DFP_SetupUploadStatusStruct("WA_UploadResult2");
if($_SERVER["REQUEST_METHOD"] == "POST"){
chmod($WA_DFP_UploadStatus["WA_UploadResult4"]["serverDirectory"], 0644);
WA_DFP_UploadFiles("WA_UploadResult2", "ProductThumb", "2", "[NewFileName]_[Increment]", "true", $WA_UploadResult2_Params);
chmod($WA_DFP_UploadStatus["WA_UploadResult2"]["serverDirectory"]."".$WA_DFP_UploadStatus["WA_UploadResult2"]["serverFileName"], 0644);
}
?>

I'm learning. it's fun to succeed :)

Sorry for the delay.


yes, the third block was for the Digital Goods addition in PowerStore 4, Power Store 3 only had the two blocks.

Glad to hear that you figured it out and got it working.

Hey, Jason,
Guess what. I should never have tried to fix it myself. It was not working after all. when I choose any other option but the default to edit the page reloads and gives me an error in the chmod lines we just added.
Could you please check the code and see what I should actually have there?

hummm, i think the first chmod needs to be after the WA_DFP_UploadFiles command instead of before it:


php:
<?php

WA_DFP_SetupUploadStatusStruct
("WA_UploadResult1");
if(
$_SERVER["REQUEST_METHOD"] == "POST"){
    
WA_DFP_UploadFiles("WA_UploadResult1""ProductImage""2""[NewFileName]_[Increment]""true"$WA_UploadResult1_Params);
    
chmod($WA_DFP_UploadStatus["WA_UploadResult1"]["serverDirectory"], 0644);
    
chmod($WA_DFP_UploadStatus["WA_UploadResult1"]["serverDirectory"]."".$WA_DFP_UploadStatus["WA_UploadResult1"]["serverFileName"], 0644); 
}
?>
<?php
WA_DFP_SetupUploadStatusStruct
("WA_UploadResult2");
if(
$_SERVER["REQUEST_METHOD"] == "POST"){
    
WA_DFP_UploadFiles("WA_UploadResult2""ProductThumb""2""[NewFileName]_[Increment]""true"$WA_UploadResult2_Params);
    
chmod($WA_DFP_UploadStatus["WA_UploadResult2"]["serverDirectory"], 0644);
    
chmod($WA_DFP_UploadStatus["WA_UploadResult2"]["serverDirectory"]."".$WA_DFP_UploadStatus["WA_UploadResult2"]["serverFileName"], 0644); 
}
?>

imagesupload folder permissions

I did what you suggested and it broke the functionality of that page completely. I could not get it to work even when I overwrote the Products_Update.php with the original file.
SO;
I went looking in the file manager on the server to check out the permissions and the code above must have changed the permissions on the entire imagesupload folder. I manually changed it to 2755 to match the others and now the original Products_Update.php page, with no modifications, works fine for updating the product images.

I am not sure why it's working now unless the imagesupload directory permissions were altered when I got the SSL certificate installed (or by some other unknown means) and now that I have changed them back all is well.

I do hope this is the end of the problem. it may have been the permissions on the whole directory that was causing the problem?

Huh,yeah, the permissions may have been changed in the switch over to the ssl server. Glad to hear it is working now though.
