Image Resizer folder permissions

Image Resizer folder permissions

Image resizer seems to be creating the thumbnails on the server as expected but they aren't displaying on the page. When I navigate to the folder ie. "image_cache/assests/images/pix/crop/wed-pic-05_w90_h90/wed-pic-05_11101223.jpg" to view the image I get the following message in my browser "Forbidden - You don't have permission to access /image_cache/assests/images/pix/crop/wed-pic-05_w90_h90/wed-pic-05_11101223.jpg on this server." I would be grateful for your help and advice on how to rectify this.

using an ftp program like FileZilla:
filezilla-project.org/

browse to the /image_cache/assests/images/pix/crop/wed-pic-05_w90_h90/wed-pic-05_11101223.jpg file on the server, right click and select File Permisions. Try chnaging the permissions level to 755 the try viewing the file again in a browser.

if that works, use File Zilla to change the permissions for the /image_cache/ folder, and set it to Recurse through all files and folders under it.

Then in dreamweaver, edit the webassist/caching/CachedResize_Image.php file


change line 229:

php:
mkdir ($cachefolder,0777,true);



to:

php:
mkdir ($cachefolder,0755,true);

Thanks Jason. At first your advice seemed to work but when a new thumbnail was created the permissions for new folders were different again so the thumbs that were already on the server display ok but the newly created ones show only as a question mark. Can you suggest anything else to try? I appreciate your help.

Can you check to make sure the folder that is storing the images have read/write permissions?

If that is still an issue, can you tell me if you are getting the same error listed above or a different error.

Thanks.

Each time image resizer creates a new folder on the server the folder is set with the wrong read/write permissions. I have to manually change permissions for each new folder before the image will display on the webpage. I am desperate to get this working so any help is greatly appreciated. Is there any way around this? Would it help if I could choose the thumbnails to be saved to a master thumbnails folder rather than a unique folder for each image?

try changing line 6L

php:
return is_dir($pathname) || @mkdir($pathname);




to:

php:
return is_dir($pathname) || @mkdir($pathname);

    chmod($pathname, 0777);
