Hello,

I have a problem with tinywebgallery.
I have just created a deb package to install on my server and i replaced the /pictures folder by a symbolic link to allow me to put my pictures on an other disk.

But tinywebgallery say "pictures : The current directory may not be above the home directory. ".

How can I set an other folder to put my pictures that wouldn't be in the tinywebgallery folder.

PS : Sorry I d'ont speak english very well. I hope that you'll understand my problem.

Best regards,
Gilles.

you can specify the pictures folder relative.
So if you have mounted your folder somewhere you can directly link there.

I think you mean to set :
$basedir = '../../../mnt/disk1/images';
in the config.php file ?

There is not a better solution ?
Use a relative link isn't very clean because if you move ths tinywebgallery folder it won't work anymore. :(

yes.

you can of course disable the security check of the backend.
search for

abovehome

in the administration and disable the checks.

Hi I am using version 1.8.7 and having the exact same problem but can't find the "abovehome" in config.php. Is it still possible to solve this somehow?

Thank you

you have to search in the code of the administration. this is not in config.php.

Hello Michael,

Thank you for your fast reply.

Unfortunately I am not aquainted with php coding, so could you please tell me more about what I am supposed to do and what to modify?

Here's what I found:

grep -R abovehome /srv/http/twg/app
/srv/http/twg/app/admin/_include/fun_copy_move.php: if(!down_home(get_abs_dir($new_dir))) show_error($new_dir.": ".$GLOBALS["error_msg"]["targetabovehome"]);
/srv/http/twg/app/admin/_include/init.php:if (!down_home($abs_dir)) show_error($GLOBALS["dir"] . " : " . $GLOBALS["error_msg"]["abovehome"]);
/srv/http/twg/app/admin/_lang/en.php: "abovehome" => "The current directory may not be above the home directory.",
/srv/http/twg/app/admin/_lang/en.php: "targetabovehome" => "The target directory may not be above the home directory.",

I imagine that I would have to modify the init.php file but not exactly sure what to do...

simply remove the line in the init.php.
