Default I can't upload pictures

so I was going to add to my Lego thread and I couldn't upload pictures from my Iphone, I then tried to do so from my laptop.

when I pick the picture to upload, it tries like normal and then just says failure to upload, any ideas as to what's going on??

I get a
Failure to write a temporary file
with a URL

and
Upload failed
with the attach an image.

Wild guess it's a memory limit on the server and we're all about to collapse the place.

An exhaustive search of the admin control page suggests I don't have access to any information on space limits, but that seems like the most likely thing. vm!

Attachment Usage is 3.11 GB

Default Re: I can't upload pictures

Is there a way of sorting the attached files by size, and deleting the oldest large ones or maybe resizing them smaller if they're images?

If you go to your own (user) control panel you can view all your attachments (under Miscellaneous) and see how big they are. I just looked at mine and nearly all of them are significantly less than 1MB, because I resize photos smaller before attaching them. I did have one video (.avi) file attached that was over 3MB, but I've deleted that now.

That’s a great idea. I know that I’ve got pics that I put in large sizes, I switched to smaller ones recently, but I am sure that I have old large pics that I can delete.

Default Re: I can't upload pictures

My lego posts use alot of pics and Ive got over 200 mb of attachements. I think I might use imgur until such a time as we can raise the memory if we can.

I'm loathe to break old threads by deleting large numbers of attachments, though I did delete some of the bigger, older photos.

Maybe get VM to verify or deny my bullshit wild guess about storage use. 3 gigs isn't a hell of a lot anymore.

Trouble with Imgur is the imaged tend to evaporate after a period of time according to some arcane formula. I like to use Gyazo.

Trying an attachment..

4ee306044e3453cffd22139afab12eb2c8d3fb1a8c0bbb2d0960efc46e061f25_1.jpg

Seems like space limitations might be the thing, or some misc cloud corruption.

VM still maybe wanna check it out tho.

I just learned that you can attach directly without attaching and hotlinking the way that I have been doing forever.

If you manually link an image you've just uploaded

then it stays visible in quotes. A minor distinction.

Hmm.

Attachment Usage 3.09 GB
I don't think it's a limit on attachments space per se. Might be some other count or free space limit.

We need to attract vm's attention.

Worked and the next file I tried did not.

So I tried uploading the first one again and got the error I got with the second file.

I suspect something to do with the database errors.
