GoDaddy domain directories

GoDaddy domain directories

Hi,
When I added the PowerGallery to our GoDaddy account, it uses the web root instead of the domain subdirectory as the path for everything. This won't work with our URL set up. For example, it using the path:
"http://homesintransition.org/homesintransitionorg/PowerGallery/images/1/sample02_782p.jpg"

Where the actual file is stored in that path, the URL to get to it, due to goDaddys magic is
"http://homesintransition.org/PowerGallery/images/1/sample02_782p.jpg"

Can't seem to find away around this. Please email me some direction

in the galleries/global.php file, try adding the following at line 2:

php:
unset($_SERVER['DOCUMENT_ROOT']);





then locate the following code:

php:
$pg_config = array(
    'path' => str_replace('galleries/', '', str_ireplace(str_ireplace('\\', '/', realpath($_SERVER['DOCUMENT_ROOT'])), '', $abs_prefix)),
    'html_prefix' => str_ireplace(str_ireplace('\\', '/', realpath($_SERVER['DOCUMENT_ROOT'])), '', $abs_file) . '/'
);





and change it to:

php:
$pg_config = array(
    'path' => "/".str_replace('galleries/', '', str_ireplace(str_ireplace('\\', '/', realpath($_SERVER['DOCUMENT_ROOT'])), '', $abs_prefix)),
    'html_prefix' => "/".str_ireplace(str_ireplace('\\', '/', realpath($_SERVER['DOCUMENT_ROOT'])), '', $abs_file) . '/'
);

Hi Jason

I have a similar problem that was partially resolved by applying your instructions since I too use GoDaddy. Actually, I have two problems.

1. On the "Choose Design" page, when I select Preview on any of the designs, the phrase "loading..." is displayed but it gets no further. The URL looks good, "http://southbayenterprise.com/powergallerytest/galleries/grid_fullsize/index.php?gallery=2&theme=light", but no gallery is displayed.

2. On the "Add to Site" page, the link that is shown in "Direct Link to Your Gallery", is invalid as it shows "http://southbayenterprise.comD:/Hosting/4491668/html/powergallerytest/galleries/grid_fullsize/index.php?gallery=2&theme=light". This may be an artifact from when I first generated the gallery, which was before I applied your instructions. I don't know how to get the wizard to regenerate it or if that is possible. Taking out "D:/Hosting/4491668/html" from the URL just gets me back to the "loading..." issue.

Any advice on how I can correct these problems would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

No luck. I added the code identified in that thread to the globals.php file in both the galleries and admin folders (in addition to the code changes you stated in this thread). Same results: Get "loading..." message when I try to Preview the gallery on the "Chose Design" page and still get the erroneous URL on the "Add to Site" page.

GoDaddy again

I have the same problem. I really wish this issue will be solved with tested code by Webassist (instead of asking us to do the testing).

Here is my situation:
A godaddy account with "deluxe" hosting plan.
The domain that i'm using is pointing to a sub-directory of the main domain.
My problem is exactly the same as the above members described i.e. when you try to preview from the admin or to embed into site you get nothing... just a blue area at the top right corner

Please help ASAP,

Godaddy & Gallery Don't mix

What I did was take the code changes to the Global.php file provided way up at the beginning of this thread where you're supposed to add the unset command at line 2 then change the couple of lines down to this

$pg_config = array(
'path' => "/".str_replace('galleries/', '', str_ireplace(str_ireplace('\\', '/', realpath($_SERVER['DOCUMENT_ROOT'])), '', $abs_prefix)),
'html_prefix' => "/".str_ireplace(str_ireplace('\\', '/', realpath($_SERVER['DOCUMENT_ROOT'])), '', $abs_file) . '/'
);

Well, where it says 'path' => "/"

remove the / from between the quotes and things will start running pretty well. Not totally perfect but a whole lot better.

Sadly, that didn't work for me. Hopefully, WA tech support will find a solution soon as I need to start using this capability very soon.
