hi there,

for about 5 days i have been looking for a solution for images preview and access problems on this forum. too many people had the same problem but no solution to mine. so the problem is:

install Gallery module: working fine but lightbox is not working
remove gallery
install dataobject manager, swfupload, uploadify, image gallery
images wont be loaded in both admin panel and my site (corrupt image screen on every preview)
click the images but lightbox or any other of the popup screens wont open the image
but i can see the images are uploaded succesfully.

then i found another maybe solution in this forum then i accidentally overwrited my_site/_config.php file with the original silverstripe
installation _config.php file.

So is there a solution which could solve all these problems like re-install silverstripe without losing data or something like that??


Ok i re-installed SS without losing any data.

but the image problem is still on. please check the site or

thanx a lot
