I have installed imagecache and the corresponding ImageCache API module and activated both of them. Unfortunatly I always get some error Messages about "permission denied", on my local testing environment. For example I receive the following error message after creating a new preset:
warning: rmdir(C:\xampp\htdocs\meine_seite\files\imagecache\avatar_thumb/avatar_pictures) [function.rmdir]: Permission denied in C:\xampp\htdocs\meine_seite\sites\all\modules\imagecache\imagecache.module on line 680.
Another error message is beeing displayed within the log book:
Imagecache - Failed generating an image from files/avatar_pictures/picture-1.jpg using imagecache preset .
While Imagecache is creating the optimised version of a picture, it is creating the new subfolders within the "files" directory. That far it works. However there seems to be a permission problem when writing into those folders.
On my hosted webspace, where I can define the permisions explicitly via chmod, it works fine. But I would like to make it work on my local dev envrionment (Win XP Home | XAMPP). I checked the properties of the affected directories and found out that it's read only. I can actually uncheck the checkbox and apply the changes for al subfolders, but when opening the properties again, the box is still checked as "protected". I assume that my problem is related to this behavior.
I hope someone can help here.
thanks and regards,
