Quote by KellyK: Hi my install works wonderfully.
until i try to FTP files.
I can not FTP into the /albums/top_level_album directory. I am sure this is becuase the album directory is owned by nobody:nobody
so i created a directory inside /albums/ and called it "test". I then added an created and album using inmemoriam and put "test" for the album ID.
I then uploaded all my files to the /albums/test directory.
After that i did a directory scan. nothing.
So i changed all the permissions & ownerships to what the other albums are and redid a scan. nothing.
How do i FTP files up??
What should the permissions & ownership be?

You should not add any images to the albums/ directory itself as this is just an organizing container for all created albums. Your usage document should make this clear.
Beyond that, this seems to be clearly a permissions issue.
Things to consider:
First: ensure that your albums directory has its permissions set according to the install instructions.
Second: having created a "test" album via FTP, and then creating an album using "test" as the ID should have returned an "album already exists" error due to the fact that an album's ID corresponds to its directory name on the server.
Third: It seems that in some cases, for reasons to boring to get into, an album directory as well as any items contained in that directory need to have permissions adjusted when that directory and/or media belonging to that directory has been created via FTP. Some servers are setup in such a way that anything accomplished via FTP is not readable via PHP and, less often, vice versa.
One other unlikely
possibility: ensure that your $INM_CONF['path_albums'] is equal to that path wherein you are placing your media.
