Can't post pictures any more

Postby kazanaki » Tue Oct 01, 2013 10:21 pm

Hello

I cannot attach pictures any more to posts. The preview works fine after adding a file (and placing it inline) but when the actual post goes up
the image is not shown (only its name is shown)

This used to work since I have used images in posts multiple times in the past in this very same forum.

Thank you

Right, so it looks like the problem is simple. We run two mirrored servers for the site, and obviously uploads are only copied to one. We could run a constant synchronization process, but I'm not liking that idea. I'm disabling image uploads for the time being, sorry. Use http://imgur.com/ if you want to show pictures for now.

Thank you for your insights!

But how did it work so far? Or it never worked in the first place?

The problem with imgur is that (unless you pay) it only keeps images for six months.
While photos uploaded directly in the forum stay for ever. The preview thumbnail is also nice.

Is disabling of images a temporary or permanent measure?

If you don't want to mirror all of the data, couldn't just map the remote data folder to the local dir? Although it's not like the forum gets/stores much traffic nowadays...

It's a temporary measure. I could write an nginx config line to check the other server if an image from that directory 404s - that might be the slickest option.

I've (I think) synchronized server 1, and am about to turn attachments back on, let's see if you have any more issues?
