Hi I have installed the filemgmt plugin on my virtual hosting. After slowly fishing through the errors trying to change the config (777 on php files etc. etc. sneaky ) I have one problem I cannot work around. When uploading the file, a variable $tmp defines where the file is uploaded to before it is written to the ../filemgmt_data/files/tmp dir for approval (I guess?). The error is thrown by files not being allowed (set by ISP, not me) to be copied from ../tmp server var to my hosting path. Can anyone tell me how I can change the $tmp var to a dir within my hosting access? Help is very welcome! Thanks.

Sounds like a permission setting on the filemgmt_data folders??

Mind if I add my errors here as well?

When I go to the Configuration Settings and attempt to change the paths, I get this error when saving changes:

Warning: fopen(/home/ainurcc/public_html/Trig/plugins/filemgmt/filemgmt.php): failed to open stream: Permission denied in /home/ainurcc/public_html/Trig/admin/plugins/filemgmt/index.php on line 1195

Any help is greatly appreciated. I have exhausted both forums and documents.

I guessed the above errors were caused by permissions so I set the permissions to 777 on any file or folder that had anything to do with the upload. I now get this message:

Warning: move_uploaded_file(g:/home/ainurcc/public_html/filemgmt_data/files/tmp/ygkVgZYilc.fxr): failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /home/ainurcc/public_html/Trig/filemgmt/submit.php on line 118

I am wondering if it is the path. If the filemgmnt folder is here:
www.ainurcc.com/filemgmt_data/files

Then in the configuration should it be this?:
"/home/ainucc/public_html/filemgmt_data/files/"

I ran into this issue a while back when installing this plugin. If I can remember correctly, you need to make sure that the filemgmt_data directory is in your public_html directory. Secondly, you also have to make sure you have the following sub-directories in your filemgmt_data directory:
o        filemgmt_data

o        filemgmt_data/files

o        filemgmt_data/files/tmp

o        filemgmt_data/snaps

o        filemgmt_data/snaps/tmp

o        filemgmt_data/category_snaps 


Once that is done you have to set the permissions to those directories to 754. Hope this helps.

Thank you Vapour. I had missed the tmp folder when setting permissions. I also had my site name mispelled in the path. That was something I could not see in the error but did catch when reviewing the config panel. It works very nicely now!

Well, I thought it was working nicely. It uploaded the file but when I went to approve it, it couldnt find it. The paths were correct, but the temp names were not. I noticed I had 2 filemgmnt.php files. I deleted the one that was in admin/plugins/filemgmnt/adim and left the one that was in filemgmt/ where the config file is as well. I still get the same errors but at least now my config panel shows the correct data and saves it as well. The path is /home/ainurcc/public_html/filemgmt_data/ and the file seems to upload properly but then it simply doesnt exist when you go to approve it. When I hover over the Download to Preview button, I see a path similar to this: http://www.ainurcc.com/filemgmt_data/files/tmp/Gtb6Yhg.gif When I look on my server in that location, there is nothing. Here is a copy of my filemgmt.php file. Does it look correct???

I don't have any files in any of my temp directories either however, where do you have all of your files located for your filemgmt? You Should have .
public_dir/admin/plugins/filemgmt
public_dir/filemgmt
public_dir/filemgmt_data (with all sub-directories)
public_dir/plugins/filemgmt

What filemgmt files do you have in those files except for your downloadable files for your users?

There is a little awkward issue with configuration. You have to set the permission of the above mentioned filemgmt.php to 777 before setting the configuration. The configuration is writing on this file. After you change the configuration, you can change the permission back to 644.

Without that none of your changes would take effect.

Hope this helps.

Hmmmmm, that is wierd. I never ran into that problem. I have my filles set to 666 and folder set to 777 and all works fine. Yet the instructions say to set them to 754.

666 works, but I couldn't remember. My files are 644, server default. So I just opened all the way up and configured it and changed it back.

It seems like he also has this file in 644, since he is using CPanel.

The permissions required depend on your server or hosting setup. If the PHP process is running under the same user as the owner of the files and directories then 7 5 4 would be all that is required. As the owner would only need write access but few hosted environments are setup this way.

If the PHP process or webserver is running under the group user ID then adding write access for the group would only be required - 764 or 774 or maybe 664.

But often this is not the case and you must set write access for world/everyone - 777 or 666.

Samstone was right about the permissions on filemgmt.php. The permissions had to be changed for the settings to stick. I have that working now. I just need the upload paths to be right

Ok. Am I to assume that /Trig/ is your root directory? If so then, have you tried putting your filemgmt_data directory in:
ainurcc.com/Trig/filemgmt_data/ (with all sub-directories)
and then set all the permissions as per your server requirements? Give that a try and see if that fixes it. Your paths should be the same as I stated in earlier post but with the addition of the following marked with the asterisk:
ainurcc.com/Trig/admin/plugins/filemgmt
ainurcc.com/Trig/filemgmt
*ainurcc.com/Trig/filemgmt_data (with all sub-directories)
ainurcc.com/Trig/plugins/filemgmt

Let me know how you made out.

I changed the files locations as you suggested. I set config to this:


$filemgmt_FileStore = "/Trig/filemgmt_data/files/";
$filemgmt_SnapStore = "/Trig/filemgmt_data/snaps/";
$filemgmt_SnapCat = "/Trig/filemgmt_data/category_snaps/";
$filemgmt_FileStoreURL = "http://www.ainurcc.com/Trig/filemgmt_data/files/";
$filemgmt_FileSnapURL = "http://www.ainurcc.com/Trig/filemgmt_data/snaps/";
$filemgmt_SnapCatURL = "http://www.ainurcc.com/Trig/filemgmt_data/category_snaps/";

I get this error:

I know it is the path in the config that is wrong. I tried it with /home/ainurcc/Trig/... as well as just Trig/... In the instructions it shows an e: in front of the path and in the config panel it sugested a g: . I am just confused.

It has to be /home/ainurcc/public_html/Trig/filemgmt_data/blah blah.

You can't start from Trig, and there is a "public_html" that you are missing in your other try.

I have heard this "God Only Knows" problem before, but could never reproduce it. It happened on my wife's computer, and we were dealing with the same website, and I didn't encounter what she did. Could that be a cookies issue? God only knows!

I found a posting on Blaine's site PortalParts.comregarding this issue in 2003, but no solution was posted.

Are you using the latest version? Try to replace the files and see if you still get that. Or try it on another computer, or delete the cookies and try again.

Ahhh yes. I heard of this before also and there was a way to fix it. I just cannot remember where it was I read it and explained. Could it possibly be that the path you have set for your cookies is wrong in your GL config.php file?
You know how something is gunna bug the hell out of you because you cannot remember what you seen and where you seen or heard it? Well this is one of those times!! I don't think that it was from this site but from another. So, off I go, searching to find where it was I seen this and how to fix it.

Thank you! I will look as well. I will also make sure my stuff is correct in the config file. Sam, did you mean the config.php or filemgmt.php file? I dont think there is anything to change in the config.php file but I will double check. Where are the cookies set?

I meant reloading all files and have a fresh install. But, anyway, I don't think that's the real problem. I just try the give you an last resort kind of advice.

You might want to try this hack here. That's what I use.

I am so glad you offered me that hack. I have no idea how to unzip tgz files. I use the unzip feature that comes with XP home... maybe i just need to get Winzip?

Meanwhile, I have been looking for a fix for the "god" error. No luck yet.

Posted on: 14/07/05 08:37pm
By: Vapour71

To unzip that type of file you need a program like WinRAR. You can get it at rarsoft.com. You can download it for free.
I hope his hack helps you out because I am almost out of ideas as to what to tell you unless I could see your directory structure.

Using WinRAR would gurantee to upack the archives without corruption. I wouldn't use XP unzip or Winzip for uzipping the PHP or CGI scripts because they I didn't give me pure unpacked files every now and then.

So that Trig site I was working on was for a class I was in. It whooped me real good and this is the first time since my last post that I have had to get back to working on the issue. I like Geeklog so much I have decided to use it on my main site. So, this will give me the chance to load this mod fresh and see if the same errors occur. I will post again soon.
