Thank you to the development team for this release and their continued work on Gallery. This was my first upgrade and everything went smoothly.

Could we please get a feature that allows us to automatically backup, and automatically upgrade, right from the control panel? WordPress integrated this into their software years ago, and it's a lifesaver for people using the software who are photographers first, and programmers/DB admins a very very distant last.

I, for one, would keep my software more up-to-date if doing so didn't involve taking a few hours worth of digging up the (correct) instructions (there are at least two different sets of instructions that I've found so far), getting stuck because there's little explanation of how to properly backup with phpMyAdmin, copying the upgrade to one folder, shuffling old files and new together, chanting three times, spinning in a circle, deleting a folder and hoping it's the right one, and running the upgrader while hoping that you didn't just overwrite your customized theme, plugins, or photo galleries.

It can be done, as WordPress shows, so can we please do it? Thank you.

Gallery 3.0.4 (Ricochet)
API = 7.54
PHP = 5.2.12 cgi


After upgrading 3.0.6, I add 6 new pictures. The result is: All are blanks:

Is anyone has the same problem? How to fix it?

Thank you.

Perhaps a permissions issue on the var directory? Start a new thread with your issue if that is not it, posting the var/logs when you try again.

@autumneve - it's a good suggestion, and something I'd like to get running, too. I'm not sure if it'll make it into 3.1.0, but if not, likely soon.

@w91803 - Hmm, strange. I noticed that the full-size image *is* available, just not the resize and thumb views. I also noticed that your site says it's still running 3.0.4... did you finish the 3.0.6 upgrade?

I am having problems getting onto 3.0.6.

I missed upgrading from 304 to 305 so was ready to go to 306 tonight.

I was all set - unpacked and uploaded the 306 directory to server, moved VAR and had database details handy. Got through the upgrade OK and then noticed many of the thumbnails missing. Ran the maintenance and they came back.

I got the deactivate modules that others seem to have but after deleting them from the old 302 directory and making sure they were not in the new 306 got rid of most but still get the warning.

Main problem is that I am told that the Gallery 3 module is out of date and that I should upgrade to 57 from 56
But when I do I get a Dang something went wrong screen taking about a exception Module failed to upgrade (line 250 of gallery/helpers/modules)

I have 4 gallery sites to upgrade so would like some help, please, before I set out to do any more.

Thanks Guys

Please make a automated upgrade process, I agree!
Im still stuck at 3.0.4, too afraid to crash my large collection of photos ;)

is there a php.ini file in that folder?
Try renaming it then upgrade modules.
I was having a devil of a time upgrading from 3.0.5 to 3.0.6
Not exactly what your experiencing but similar. I renamed php.ini
and it cleared the errors.

NO php.ini in the gallery module folder (if that is where you mean) There is a file which I have changed the version number on but it makes no difference.

The module upgrader tells me I am up-to-date but the warning still comes at the top of each page.

@shug17 - you should probably change the file back to how it was. The warning message is likely because it's reading the version number incorrectly from the file...
