Ok i've found out that it just won't export from the database to the filesystem BUT if i delete all detailed images from products and then change the image location and then upload a detailed image it WILL then place it into the file system.

Very, Very strange

Deny From All

So, you must change it or create a new file. I simply edited it, and copied it to my two image folders (Thumbnails & Detailed Images) that I have created under the .../xcart/files/ directory.

Also, you won't see the .htaccess files on most FTP programs. They are hidden files. I have to use my Control Panel File Manager application (off of my hosted server) to see them.


the reason was that its where your downloadable products get stored if you sell that kind of stuff

thanks!
 
Wow, thanks for this quick how to. It worked perfectly for me!

One question though. The files are still in the db under 'xcart_images' as well (I only moved the detailed images). When it moves the images from db to the file system, does it not automatically delete them from the db? I'm trying to bring the size of my database down.

If not can I delete them and how?

thanks, j

Ok, figured it out. I did a OPTIMIZE TABLE xcart_images and it cleared it down to the correct size :)

Help!!!
 
I try everything for import my images and I follow all the steps that you wrote here...but doesnt work. When I run the process it show me:

16177 /home/httpd/vhosts/swansterling.com/httpdocs/files/thumbs/DD0001.gif Success
#16181 /home/httpd/vhosts/swansterling.com/httpdocs/files/thumbs/DD0002.gif Success
#16185 /home/httpd/vhosts/swansterling.com/httpdocs/files/thumbs/DD0005.gif Success
#16179 /home/httpd/vhosts/swansterling.com/httpdocs/files/thumbs/DD0010.gif Success

etc etc

but when I see the products dont show me the images...what happen? what I am doing wrong?

rvargas 12-17-2004 08:07 PM

missing images
 
I followed the instrucctions to move my images to file system,
I puut them outside .../store/files, then I realized I would not be able to see them when I was modifying or creating a product, so I changed them to 'store/files/detailed' and 'store/files/thumbnails' I had no problems doing that, but now when I click on a product the detailed image do not appear, any ideas how can I fix this?

Thanks

Code:

Allow from all
