  • Resolved KBBP


    Hi – thanks for a (potentially!) great plugin.

    Couldn’t find a similar issue on the forum…

    I have Version 1.2.3 of SHOPP and 1.0.3 of Image Tools and 3.4.2 of WP.

    Every time I try to run the conversion tool I get this:
    The file storage path does not exist or is not a directory!

    I’m unsure where to change this directory as per your notes to /wp-content/uploads/shopp

    I created this directory via FTP and have full write access.

    Hope you can assist -thanks Brian

  • OK – solved the problem – I needed to use the full path with my particular server setup 🙂

    I’m sorry I missed your post, but it’s great to hear you got the problem sorted.

    You’re right – currently Shopp Image Tools requires a full path (whereas I believe Shopp actually can accept either a full path or a path relative to wp-content) and I could probably make this clearer.

    Hi – I’m having the same issue – but I’m using the full path ( and still getting the error.

    I am using shop 1.2.5

    Any suggestions?

    I was able to put a test file in the directory and hit it via that url, so it “exists”.


    Hi Mark – if the path you are using is a URL http://... then that’s incorrect – it needs to be a filepath. One way you could determine this is create a test PHP file in that directory, containing:

    echo dirname(__FILE__);

    View it and note down the path (then delete it!) – does that help at all?

    ha, simple enough. Thanks for the super fast response, really appreciated!

    No problem.

    I need to make a little time to make the plugin more tolerant for things like paths relative to wp-content and so on (which Shopp itself supports), just been busy.

    Glad you’re all sorted anyway 🙂



    Thanks for the help!
