NextGEN Gallery Plugin - Cannot Import Images (5 posts)

    I have been having this problem for a while now. I install the plugin fine but when it comes to importing image (via any method) the progress bar stays stuck at 0%. I have tried uploading my images by FTP then scanning the folder for new images but the same thing happens.

    I have set-up my gallery and album even but it is not working. Strangely enough I have had this plugin work on a local host install but not on my live server. I remember someone saying on this forum last year that my version oh PHP may have something to do with it.

    I am on PHP 4.4.8. Could anyone say whether they have came across the same problem and if they have any fix for it??

    I have tried adding this to the .htaccess file to force php5 but it doesn't work:
    'AddType x-mapp-php5 .php
    AddType x-mapp-php4 .php4

    I really want to use this plugin but just doesn't want to work for me..

    i had a problem uploading via ftp, however i noticed that the permissions needed to be set at 0666 on the files before scanning the folder.

    I am having the same problem. I can upload though via FTP and than import a new gallery through Add gallery -> Import image folder.

    The htaccess addition u are using is wrong:

    it should look like this:

    AddType x-mapp-php5 .php
    AddHandler x-mapp-php5 .php

    The memory limit set by your provider affects the max size of images that the GD can handle php 5 certainly solved my problems and now NGG is working perfectly...

    this is especially relevant for self hosted blogs
