Hi.
I have installed TWG to the letter (I hope) however when I try to access the admin panel for the first time I get the following error message:

Warning: realpath() has been disabled for security reasons in /home/www/sevac.co.uk/gallery/admin/index.php on line 58

Fatal error: main(): Failed opening required '' (include_path='.:/usr/local/php4/share/pear') in /home/www/sevac.co.uk/gallery/admin/index.php on line 58


Not too good with PHP so any suggestions would be gratefully received.

Seems my host (Awardspace) has chosen to disable realpath, whatever it may be :cry:
Is there a way round this maybe?

stupid restriction - because this does only remove ../ from filenames.

you can remove this if you like - but there are about 10 places where you have to remove this. This works on most server.

I only have added it because there are some wervers that don't allow .. in the path when including.

some things don't work without this - like divx video include because they don't allow ../ in paths - ask you hoster to remove this restriction.

I think he has only done this because he don't know better ;). I know that there is a security problem with realpath before php 5.0.3 + safemode

is safemode on and your php < 5.0.3 ?

How would I remove it and where am I likely to find the 10 places?
Sorry to be a pain. :wink:

you have to search for it in all files of TWG.
But not all functions will work 100% - not sure if the user management will work - try and tell me.

When you say remove it.. what exactly am I removing? Just the word..?

Author:  TinyWebGallery [ 20. Mar 2007, 15:39 ]
Post subject: 

should actually work because the function is realpath()

and you can leave the ()

most important for you are the ones the start with include

Removed...
require realpath (dirname(__FILE__) . "/../config.php")); // config from TWG
require_once realpath(_QUIXPLORER_PATH . "/../inc/filefunctions.inc.php"); // config from TWG
..from admin/index.php and have reached the login page.. fingers crossed

Got into admin panel but still too many problems accessing directories etc. Also one or two other problems which I assume are part of my problem.
Annoying really as I wanted to use this but it seems I cant :cry:

I'll send them one but I've looked on their forum and found a couple of other peoples problems (not with TWG) with realpath but they dont seem very helpful.
I'll try anyway..
