Thanks in advance,
here, is how to do it.
do not use phpMyadmin.
1.- Login into your store admin section.
2.- Make sure you create the folders on your server for the Thumbnails and the Detail Images and giving the proper permission if you have a UNIX server.
3.- Select "Images location
4.- Store images in "File system
5.- Type the path of your thumbnails (i.e. ../xcart/files/thumbnails)
Detailed product Images
6.- Store images in "File System
7.- Type the path of your detail images (i.e. ../xcart/files/details)
8.- Select "Submit
9.- now create a file name ".htaccess
" in the folder that has your Thumbnails and details Images as well.
10.- the htaccess file should have the following line of code
11.- Make sure the file you created does not have any extention if it does rename it.
12.- upload the .htaccess file to both of your folders where your images are.
and that will do it. If you have any question please drop me a line
