Your own B3tapix, on your own site
you want to set up a mechanism for uploading images on your site
like you do in B3tapix, you can use this script (a derivative of
the B3tapix script).
can be useful if you want to be able to upload images without using
FTP (it's easier and sometimes FTP is disabled)
the script here!
need a server with PHP and the ability to create a directory and
set its permissions.
file, decompress it and transfer uplaod.php to your web site (probably
Assuming you have www.domain.com, let's say you want
to install it in the main directory of your web site, so that the
script would be visible at www.domain.com/uplaod.php
are the steps to set up the environment:
1) Create a folder (for
example pics) in the main directory of your web site.
the directory's permission so that it is writable by httpd. A slightly
less safe but much simpler way is to make the directory writable
by anyone. Your FTP program should have a command like chmod. Using
chmod, set the permissions for the directory to 777. Another way
to say the same thing is to make it a+w (all can write), this depends
from your FTP software.
3) Change three variables at the beginning
of uplaod.php to reflect your settings:
$password = "";
here the password you will have to insert to be able to upload.
If you leave the line as it is, no password will be required to
upload, and anyone will be able to do it.
$pict_dir = "/pics";
here the name of the writable directory created at steps 1 &
2 above. Leave the slash before, don't add a slash at the end.
$http_dir = "http://www.domain.com/pics/";
this line to reflect your domain and your directory name.
Upload the script to your web site & test it. Remember: 99%
of the install problems come from not setting the permissions!
you have any problem, I will be glad to help: f d-o-t bonomi a-t
