it should be as clean as it gets.

Try adding on or below line 155 of ImageGalleryPage.php:


You'll get a debug window in the upload that will tell you the error that is being thrown.

A 500 error is pretty ambiguous. Could be a lot of things. Ensure the following:

- There is no user authentication that might be blocking out the server request
- File is not too large. Check your post_max_size and upload_max_filesize settings in PHP.
- Permissions errors or anything else that might cause the server to reject the file.
- Try a variety of file sizes and types and filenames and ensure that all of them fail the same way.

Do you have any PHP logs? Those are useful for grabbing a verbose error. PHP errors won't be reported to Flash since it causes the request to fail. All you'll get is a 500 error. Even a simple syntax error will cause it.

If you're on Mac and running Leopard, I'd like to screenshare with you through iChat if possible and hopefully figure out what's going on. I'm also working on a long overdue verbose debug mode for the SWFUpload module, which can probably help you.

Sorry you're experiencing this. It's by far the most common bug I have with SWFUpload, and the more exposure I get to these incidents, the more I can iron it out.

I tried changing my memory usage in php.ini and while it lets me upload larger images, etc to other systems (wordpress) it doesn't sort this issue.

the image I am trying to upload in this case is a very small image that's <20kb. Well, the old one in the other post was not but the one I just tried is.

I am more than happy to schedule an iChat with you for some screen sharing goodness. I am on Leopard 10.5.6.
email me (you have my email from before I imagine) and I will get you my IM details.
We can figure out a time then. Thanks for looking into this.

thanks for the great work wih the image gallery.
We have this running on windows with IIS6 and it works very good.
But we have one minor issue:
Even if there is only one album (we renamed the default one), we do get the overview page of the albums.
On the overview there is only one album shown (which is correct).

We downloaded the gallery (0.6.4) from your website.

TIA Stephan

You've downloaded the old version of the ImageGallery. Delete it, as well as the "gallery" module. Then install these via SVN checkout:

svn co
svn co

run a dev/build

svn co

Please note, the ImageGallery module requires 2.3.

Once the module reaches a stable state, I'll post it to my website as a ZIP file.
