Overwrite file in directory using symbolic link

Overwrite file in directory using symbolic link

Because of a storage issue on my webserver, I had to move one of my image directories to another volume and create a symbolic link to the new folder.

Using Data Assist File Manipulation, I can upload to the new directory through the symbolic link with no issues, but I can't seem to replace an existing image in the directory. As I understand it, when using a symbolic link it's as if the linked folder is the same as the destination folder, but I'm wondering if there's some issue with this extension detecting whether the file exists?

Any guidance you can offer would be greatly appreciated.

I'll need to troubleshoot directly, see the private message section.

I don't think it has any thing to do with the dimensions, but rather file size and memory needed for the server to resize the image.

To troubleshoot, enable error reporting by add the following code at line 1:

<?php
error_reporting(E_ALL);
ini_set('display_errors','on');
?>


also, disable the redirect after the upload in the update record server behavior, then add code to write the DFP Debug status and contents of the FILES array to the body of the page:
<pre><?php var_dump($_FILES); ?></pre>
<?php echo WA_DFP_AllUploadsDebug(); ?>


run a test on a larger image again and post the results.
