Default Re: getting pics out of db

Hi rjc,

This is great... I'm also a "newbie"...

Have tried to do this... but I keep getting the message...

Warning: fopen(_htm/home/maxtarco/public_html/store/files/master/t_3.jpg): failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /home/maxtarco/public_html/store/admin/images_location.php on line 136

Warning: Cannot modify header information - headers already sent by (output started at /home/maxtarco/public_html/store/admin/images_location.php:136) in /home/maxtarco/public_html/store/include/func.php on line 181

but I'm not sure what this means or what I'm doing wrong.

All my image files (like 8416.jpg) are located in .../store/files/master

Also... I've uploaded my products in a product file with the .jpg file name in the thumbnail field.

Can you help?

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"
Product thumbnails
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" buttom
9.- now create a file name ".htaccess"
10.- the htaccess file should have the following line of code
Allow from all
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

Kind regards,
