Hey everyone. I’ve been using gallery for quite some time and haven’t had any problems. Today, I got the following message:
Error (ERROR_PLATFORM_FAILURE) :
- in modules/core/classes/GalleryTemplate.class at line 270 (GalleryStatus::error)
- in modules/core/classes/GalleryTemplate.class at line 222 (GalleryTemplate::_initCompiledTemplateDir)
- in main.php at line 318 (GalleryTemplate::display)
- in main.php at line 87
- in main.php at line 80.
Long story short, this error is caused by the gallery data directory not being writeable. This is where it gets interesting. I have tried chmod’ing the directory to 744 and 774, which should be adequate, given that PHP runs as myself. I’ve never had this problem before, nor have I ever 777’ed this directory. There’s no reason I should have to 777 it. Anyone having a similar experience?
