[Solved] Can't Upload Images On New Server

Recommended Posts

Hi there, I'm hoping someone can help here.

I've just moved a new site from my development server account over (where the site was working fine for the client to edit content pre-launch) to the client's final hosting account and the live site is all fine. However, while most edits can be done without an issue, image uploads in admin cannot. I know this has been an issue before but, having trawled the posts about it and suggested esolutions I still can't resolve it on their host.

PW Version: 3.0.123
PHP version: 7.3.20
max_execution_time 160
max_upload_size 256M
GD Library is enabled

Looking at the console data it looks like the AJAX request from the image upload is getting a 403 error which is suggesting a permissions issue? First we get this on console:
 

?id=1169&s=1&c=1:1 Uncaught SyntaxError: Unexpected token < in JSON at position 0

Then, the AJAX request:
 

https://*******/admin/page/edit/?&id=1169&InputfieldFileAjax=1

Gets a 403 according to Chrome Dev Tools > Network XHR. Also, the response is empty.

Can anyone point me in the direction of the directory that deals with this and what the permission should be to allow it or indeed any other fix / area to investigate?

Thanks so much for your help.

This has happened to me when a Warning or Error is appended for some reason on the response of the ajax upload and the icon keeps spinning. Try disabling errors and warnings through php settings.

The client's IT engineer found the issue last night. Their new live server had 'apache mod_security' enabled and that was preventing the AJAX response from getting through. As soon as it was turned off the AJAX response was received and image uploads started working.

I'd be interested to see if anyone has had this issue and if it's considered bad practice to have this turned off long-term.

mod_security is known do cause all manner of problems with various systems. One can get them under control, but from my experience most people just disable it.

I figured that was most probably the situation but good to know. Thank you.

      Hello all,
      wasn't sure where to put this, so it goes in General section.
      Ryan shows a hook that we can use to mirror files on demand from live server to development environment to be up to date with the files on the server without having to download complete site/assets/files folder.
      I just implemented this but had problems getting files to load from a site in development that is secured with user/password via htaccess.
      First I tried to use WireHttp setHeader method for basic authentication like this
      function mirrorFilesfromLiveServer(HookEvent $event) { $config = $event->wire('config'); $file = $event->return; if ($event->method == 'url') { // convert url to disk path $file = $config->paths->root . substr($file, strlen($config->urls->root)); } if (!file_exists($file)) { // download file from source if it doesn't exist here $src = 'http://mydomain.com/site/assets/files/'; $url = str_replace($config->paths->files, $src, $file); $http = new WireHttp(); // basic authentication $u = 'myuser'; $pw = 'mypassword'; $http->setHeader('Authorization: Basic', base64_encode("$u:$pw")); $http->download($url, $file); } } But, unfortunately this didn't work.
      So now I am using curl to do the download. My hook function now looks like this
      function mirrorFilesfromLiveServer(HookEvent $event) { $config = $event->wire('config'); $file = $event->return; if ($event->method == 'url') { // convert url to disk path $file = $config->paths->root . substr($file, strlen($config->urls->root)); } if (!file_exists($file)) { // download file from source if it doesn't exist here $src = 'http://mydomain.com/site/assets/files/'; $fp = fopen($file, 'w+'); // init file pointer $url = str_replace($config->paths->files, $src, $file); $u = 'myuser'; $pw = 'mypassword'; $ch = curl_init(); curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_URL, $url); curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_TIMEOUT, 50); // crazy high timeout just in case there are very large files curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_RETURNTRANSFER, true); curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_USERPWD, "$u:$pw"); // authentication curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_HTTPAUTH, CURLAUTH_BASIC); // authentication curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_FILE, $fp); // give curl the file pointer so that it can write to it curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_FOLLOWLOCATION, true); $data = curl_exec($ch); curl_close($ch); } } Now I can load files and images from the htaccess protected development server 🙂
      If anyone knows how to get this to work with WireHttp, please let me know. Thank you.

      Hi,
       
      I'm trying to upload images from a folder into a page. I need to replace the images instead of adding. The image field already has the replace existing images turned on, but it doesn't seem to be enough.
       
      My code:
      foreach($files as $file) { if(substr($file, 0, 1) != '.' && $file != '.' && $file != '..') { // Get SKU $file_sku = substr($file, 0, 9); // Check for book $book = $pages->get('sku=' . $file_sku); if(!$book->id) { // Book doesn't exist } else { // Upload image into book !!! THIS CODE ADDS FILE INSTEAD OF REPLACING. HOW CAN I REPLACE? $book->book_images->add($upload_directory . '/' . $file); // Delete file unlink($upload_directory . '/' . $file); } // Save book if($book->id) $book->save(); } }  
      What am I missing?

      I'm trying to implement a front-end image upload form for user profile pictures, to a field called 'profile_picture'. The code is based on the various examples found around these forums but isn't yet 100% right.
      The form successfully submits the image to the server and updates the field in the dashboard. When you submit the firm, the page reloads and uploads the image but the template still loads the old image path (now broken path as the old image has been removed).
      I can only get the new image to show if I hit enter in the address bar forcing the page to reload.
      Any ideas? Is it a caching issue, or something to do with the order of the script? It makes no difference if I call the image after the upload form.
      <?php //Display current user image $userImg = $user->profile_picture->first(); echo '<img src="'.$userImg->url.'">'; $upload_path = $config->paths->assets . "files/avatar_uploads/"; $f = new WireUpload('userimage'); $f->setMaxFiles(1); $f->setMaxFileSize(1*1024*1024); $f->setOverwrite(true); $f->setDestinationPath($upload_path); $f->setValidExtensions(array('jpg', 'jpeg', 'png', 'gif')); if($input->post->form_submit) { if(!is_dir($upload_path)) { if(!wireMkdir($upload_path)) throw new WireException("No upload path!"); } $files = $f->execute(); if ($f->getErrors()) { foreach($files as $filename) @unlink($upload_path . $filename); foreach($f->getErrors() as $e) echo $e; } else { $user->of(false); $user->profile_picture->removeAll(); // wirearray (line added by @horst: explanation is three posts beneath) $user->profile_picture = $upload_path . $files[0]; $user->save(); $user->of(true); @unlink($upload_path . $files[0]); } } ?> <form class="forum-form" accept-charset="utf-8" action="./" method="post" enctype="multipart/form-data" > <input type="file" id="attach" name="userimage" accept="image/jpg,image/jpeg,image/gif,image/png" /> <input type="submit" name="form_submit" value="Submit"/> </form>

      Hi Guys,
      Just finished a website locally and wanted to upload it on the webserver of my customer. I got a server 500 error. Now, the guidelines of the hoster (world4you.com) does not allow "Options" in the htaccess-file. So, when I uncomment these:
      Options -Indexes
      Options +FollowSymLinks
      the site is visible, but the content won't show and no links are available. Not sure if I need the Symlinks-part but I guess I need a workaround for the Index-part. Can anybody help here? I need the website up and running asap....
      Thanks!

      Hey guys,
      Today I was uploading images and ran into an image I couldn't upload. This has never happened before since I got images uploading working.
      I had a dig around the forum but couldn't find anything relevant.
      Initially I thought it was due to the size ~1.3mb, but I had uploaded something bigger after and it was fine (~1.7mb). There are no size or dimension restrictions on this image field.
      After looking at the image some more, I realised its dimensions was HUGE: ~5300px
      There must be some sort of limit somewhere throwing an error due to this dimension size? Because after I resized the image down to 2560px, it uploaded fine.
      What does everyone think? I kind of just want to know. See below for more info. Thanks!
      Uploading the smaller file, everything is fine. If you look at the response, you can see:

      Uploading the original file, something happens and there is no response (see Content-Length: 0)

      Which in turn must trigger this issue in the JS.

      No response.
