    I keep getting the following when I try to upload pictures onto my plogger:

    Internal Server Error
    The server encountered an internal error or misconfiguration and was unable to complete your request.

    Please contact the server administrator, and inform them of the time the error occurred, and anything you might have done that may have caused the error.

    More information about this error may be available in the server error log.

    Additionally, a 404 Not Found error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.

    Can someone please help me? Sometimes it works, sometimes it dosen't. This is the message that I always get now. Please help someone!

    Do you have access to server error logs? The problem is probably described there in more detail.

    Try to turn off "Generate Cruft-free URL"-s in options (it is located in the Interface options section) and see if it works then?

    I get the same 500 Server Error when I try to do two things:
    1) Import many photos at once (I get the error, but when I go back it has properly imported 2 or 3 images)
    2) Import a huge list of images - I can't have a large list of images in my upload folder - if I do, I get the error when Plogger tries to show me the thumbnail select page for importing

    Notes about my setup:
    Using 1&1 as a webhost
    images are 1-1.5 MB each

    Could this be a memory issue? Others with this same issue - when do you get your errors and how do you get around them?

    I finally found something that made sense and I hope this helps... each web server only allows a certain amount of memory to be allocated to a particular PHP process - some hosts are more generous than others. If you upload smaller files, less memory will be needed during the import process. Thus, if you upload smaller files, you can do more without running into issues.

    That said, it would be nice if Plogger could understand when it was running out of memory and batch the job in pieces using available memory... this issue is highly annoying.

    I think I have a solution for this... by using AJAX and importing each image one at a time and churning through them like a queue would eliminate all the memory and timeout problems altogether. You could even fade out each entry in the table as it is processed by removing TR elements from the DOM Now I just have to find time to write this. Any ajax wizards out there want to give it a try?

    i too have this problem. I just uploaded about 100 images without a problem, but now, when I want to upload another 70 or so, I get this problem :(

    Hi All,

    I am using 1&1 hosting and they do seem to be very tight with memory and very short on time outs. I have been using Macromedia fireworks to batch my pictures to 250k. It conserves my webspace and keeps the resolution big enough for display. There is a a windows XP powertool that is free and will do the same. At 250k I seem to be able to batch load 30 pictures at a time.
    I had all these issues too and have been using Plogger since Aug. 2007. I finally figured what I needed to do was upload my pictures in a compressed Zipped folder which will be transorded or upload to the Import link using FTP. I use either DreameWeaver, SmartFTP or Firefoxes FireFTP. they have all worked wonders and with no issues. With the Zipped folder on your sewrver choose the Import link and just choose which Picture go where, real easy.

    Is there a link in or for Plogger to upload Zipped compressed files with FTP? If there isn't please someone place it in the Import area to make uploading 100's of photos easier. But for now I'll have to use SmartFTP, Dreamweaver or the simple UploadPal in the link below. I created a new blank page and put a password protect on the upload page of my site so nobody else can uploads to my Plogger gallery.

    Here are some tools Ive used for uploading:


    Password Protect PHP

    - Keep Smiling - I Hope this Helps -
    Plogger, Will this script work for unzipping and zipping files for uploading from the import page.
    Zipping and Unzipping Files with PHP

    Im on the search for this feature so Ill be posting more links.
    <blockquote><cite>Posted By: sidtheduck</cite>1&1 looks like it allows use of local php.ini files as well as .htaccess files to modify your local php.ini settings -><a href=""></a>. You should be able to use either of those options to edit / change the default settings (PHP's ini_set function may be disabled on 1&1 hosts, so the Plogger script, or any other script, may be unable to set these for you).</blockquote>

    I've changed the memory limit. apparently, 1&1 said my default limit was 40mb, so the lady changed it to 128mb and dropped it in the root on the plogger gallery, but it's still only allowing approximately 30-40 photos to be uploaded before giving the 500 error. I've got over 1300 photos to import and I really do not want to create about 100 folders with 25-30 photos per folder. is there any other work around for this?

    Edit the .htaccess file in the plogger directory so that it reads as follows

    # BEGIN Plogger
    RLimitMem 128000000
    # END Plogger

    This has allowed me to upload images >6MB via FTP/import

    Please note: some server configurations may not allow this - but worth a try on yours.
