Support » Plugin: NextGEN Gallery - WordPress Gallery Plugin » unable to upload using plugin, FTP works

  • briandeyo



    I’m testing the plugin out for the first time. I’m unable to upload images using the GUI, but the folders/galleries do create.

    When uploading,the images go to 100%, but then fail with a

    “an unexpected error occurred. This is most likely due to a server misconfiguration. Check your PHP error log or ask hosting provider.” 0 files uploaded

    So asking my hosting provider will take some time. Am I just missing permissions on a folder somewhere? This is an IIS install of WP. I can’t find any instructions on more specific steps on configurations that may be necessary to change. Nothing in the readme file… nothing online.

    Suggestions? I’ve granted full access to the IIS acct. I’m definitely missing something and I expect it’s something simple. Any help is appreciated.

    @briandeyo – Seeing what, if any, recent error_log messages that are related to NextGEN Gallery will be helpful.

    Have you tried our latest public beta version? We have done some additional path related updates which help with Windows installations (although we always recommend “linux” installations for WordPress in general).

    See this page for more details:

    I am also having problems. I was able to create my first two galleries and they look great. So I tried adding an image, it goes to 100% and it then says 0 out of 1 images updated. I tried over and over and it didn’t work. I finally found that “update directory” link and tried just dropping the image into the directory behind the scenes and that worked. So at least I had a work around for existing galleries. Annoying, but oh well.

    I then tried creating a new gallery and after waiting while all 10 of my images went to 100% and then got a yellow triangle behind them that says “HTML error”, it neither created the directory nor uploaded any images. I’m running out of patience. Should I just go back to using the default galleries inside WordPress. Is something wrong with my installation? I just loaded it a week ago.

    @vselep – You should probably at least start your own topic for your issue(s) … as recommended here:

    You can also check for conflicts especially caching related items as the plugin worked and then stopped working it would be a good place to start.
