 106 Bug ReportCriticalBackend / Core Install creates wrong directory structure in repository Closed2.32a5 Task Description

When installing photo organizer 2.32a on a clean system (so not an upgrade) the driectory structure in the repository is set up wrong. The 0000x folders are not created in the v0000 folder, but next to the folder at the root of the repository.

Where the structure should be:

 108 Bug ReportCriticalBackend / Core Registering a new user is broken Closed2.32b1 Task Description

Fresh install, I get the following error when creating a simple user (just filling in mandatory fields, the bold ones)

Stange as it works fine with my version of 2.32a on another machine. Could this be a database issue?

 112 Bug ReportCriticalBackend / Core Bug in bulk update Closed2.32b1 Task Description

I tried to change the Author and Copyright fields of all photos of a user.

Bulk update doesn't update the fields, it give the following result:

# author = 'Bjorn Dejonghe', copyright = 'Copyright (c) 2006 Bjorn Dejonghe'
# users = 6

Warning: pg_query() []: Query failed: ERROR: column "copyright" of relation "photo" does not exist in /var/www/localhost/htdocs/po/bulk.update.php on line 261

Updated 602 photos.

 140 Bug ReportCriticalUser Interface Web installer fails to recognise $install_enabled Closed2.33-rc21 Task Description

As noted on #po-devel:

Web installer always says "Install disabled. please set $install_enabled=1 in config_site.php if you wish to run the installer." regardless of $install_enabled setting in config_site.php.


install.php, lines 477-480 is the check if $install_enabled is 1, but you're not actually including the config file(s) until line 489, so $install_enabled is unset.
Move lines 477-480 (the check for $install_enabled != 1) to after line 489.

 366 Bug ReportCriticalItalian Registration/Confirmation mail doesn't arrive correctly Closed2.35 Task Description

Registration Mail doesn't arrive correctly. Username and PASSWORD are not provided.

The bug is on the 761 and 762 line of src/lang/it_IT.php

You have to replace:

$user_data[3] with $user_data[username]
$user_data[4] with $user_data[password]


 384 Bug ReportCriticalDatabase PO does not create database tables on remote PostgreSQL ...Closed2.365 Task Description

everything looks fine until the PO's setup script trys to import the tables to the pgsql server. I am unable to proceed with the setup. No documentation for remote pgsql server only local server. po_user is able to connect manually but not install.php is not able to.

 409 Bug ReportCriticalWeb site Demo/Test Site Delivers empty page after valid login ClosedDevel2 Task Description

Try to login with invalid account credentials. Correct behaviour, displays invalid login.

Try to login with valid credentials (created account in Flyspray bugtracker, as indicated in into page). Accepts credentials, but lands on an empty page. Displaying the source of the delivered page proves no content delivered.

Users Page and help page seem to work ok.

Clicking "Folders and Albums" in Search results in a "404 Not Found" error.

Demo site is apparently rather broken at the moment.

 410 Bug ReportCriticalInstaller Password displayed instead of database during install w ...Closed2.36 Task Description

If attempting to run "install.php" without a language, then the output includes the line:

"su - postgres -c "createlang plpgsql <password>"

<password> is the password, unmasked. It should be <database>.

The problem was a single "=" instead of a double "=". I have attached a diff file with the fix. The line numbers seem off though, compared to what grep says.

 466 Bug ReportCriticalBackend / Core Original photos deleted without adding to database on d ...Closed2.371 Task Description


I'm having a problem with writing to my database, but reads are fine. I am adding images from a local directory. I am using PO 2.36.1.

When I try to add images, I get red text telling me that the transferring the metadata failed and that PO failed to update the database. Unfortunately, PO still goes ahead with "cleaning up the mess".

Luckily I still have a backup of my photos, but this part of the process could probably use some extra checks and an abort before deleting the files.

Thank you,


 18 Bug ReportHighBackend / Core Stop using predictable filenames ClosedDevel4 Task Description

For things like photo imports, exports, and whatnot, we use predictable sequences in our filenames. These should be properly randomized.

 113 Bug ReportHighBackend / Core camera edit doesn't respect owner ClosedStable7 Task Description

someone can edit a camera they don't own.

 158 Bug ReportHighBackend / Core AND in search for keywords does not work ClosedStable3 Task Description

Searching for 2 keywords linked with AND always gives back an empty result.
Eg.: I have 2 images that both have the keywords "abstract" and "art" attached to them. They can't be found by the search "abstract AND art".

Looking at the SQL that PO sends to the database, I could trace the error. The search above produces the SQL:

OR photo.identifier in (select from photo_keywords k where (k.keyword ~* 'abstract' and k.keyword ~* 'art'))

This seems to be wrong since k.keyword contains only ONE keyword at a time. So "k.keyword ~* 'abstract' and k.keyword ~* 'art'" will never find a corresponding line in the database.

The SQL-part about keywords should be

photo.identifier in(select from photo_keywords k where k.keyword ~* 'abstract') and photo.identifier in(select from photo_keywords k where k.keyword ~* 'art')

The "AND" must be between the two "in(select... )"-Subqueries, not in them.

The problem in the code is in search.text.general.php, line 160, where a string plus the build_sql_search_string-function are used to generate $sql_search_keyword. I would suggest to write a new function, which is the same as build_sql_search_string() exept the part that handles "AND". This should be something like:

elseif (strncmp($keyword[operator], "AND", 3) == 0) {
if ($sql_search_string == "")
$sql_search_string = "photo.identifier in (select from photo_keywords k where " .sprintf("%s %s", $sql_field_name, $keyword[keyword]);
$sql_search_string .= " and photo.identifier in (select from photo_keywords k where " .sprintf("%s %s", $sql_field_name, $keyword[keyword]).")";

In line 160 in search.text.general.php ")" should be added to the return of this new function at the end, but no text at the beginning.
That should fix the simple search.
I have not investigated into the complex search, which doesn't find keywords linked by "AND" either.

Kind of showstopper :-O

 311 Bug ReportHighInstaller fresh install hangs on sql/db error Closed2.3412 Task Description

Hi, I was doing a new install 2.34b from scratch on a OpenSuse 10.0. Following the install guide, then calling po/install.php. Result:

the problem is due to a dependency.

 335 Bug ReportHighImport Non-ASCII/UTF-8 files are failing to import properly. ClosedDevel3 Task Description

I have two files here, generated by photoshop, with special ISO8859-1 characters.

We need to be able to convert all of these strings into a UTF-8 format for DB insertion.

 387 Bug ReportHighJavascript Internet explorer 7 and add keywords Closed2.361 Task Description

There is a problem with javascript (I suppose) in ie7 when I go to add the keywords (photo.add.php?folder=3).

 389 Bug ReportHighBackend / Core cannot edit any photo Closed2.361 Task Description

When i try to edit any photo (click on album name, then the photo i want to edit, choose 'edit') - i.e. add keyword - after all the modifications are done, click on 'Save changes' and nothing appens. Reading the log i've found:
[error] [client] PHP Fatal error: Call to a member function delete() on a non-object in /var/www/html/po/photo.edit.2.php on line 175, referer: http://localhost/po/photo.edit.php?photo=1&album=

Tried on a fedora core 8 and debian testing (pgsql 8.2.9, php 5.2.6)


 392 Bug ReportHighUser Interface Edit on a single photo fails Closed2.362 Task Description

Select a single photo from an album and hit the 'edit' button at the bottom. URL is now:


change info in the fields, add new tags etc... Hit 'save changes'.

Get back a blank response (HTML source is empty). URL is now:


Go to the photo page, refresh if necessary, edits have not been saved.

Workaround: select a single picture and use the 'Bulk Update' with that picture. Works.

Note - on the Bulk Update page the fields all have a checkbox for you to mark the changes you want. On the photo.edit.php page there are no checkboxes...

Very recent apache2/postgres/ubuntu installation, seems to happen for all users.


 405 Bug ReportHighUser Interface mail.php not included by subscription.add.php Closed2.36 Task Description

subscription.add.php doesn't include the mail.php include, and so fails to send client notifications. Adding:

include_once "include/mail.php";

after the other includes fixes this.

 430 Bug ReportHighJavascript BASE tag not working properly with Internet Exporer Closed2.36 Task Description

as of this writing, it works with a fully-patched IE8 for <a href> links, but stuff specified in javascript (eg location.href = or location.assign()) doesn't respect the BASE HREF tag at all.

This is a fundamental IE bug.


and also

At the moment, this breaks a few buttons in PO only -- list/slide view, and edit/delete buttons -- all on the photo view page.

Not sure how to go about working around this, except to not use pretty URLs...

 435 Bug ReportHighBackend / Core Security problem: world readable files in /tmp (and may ...Closed2.363 Task Description

I've noticed that in various situations, Photo Organizer creates files in /tmp.
These have loose permissions due to an inadequate umask.

What's the point of Alice making her pictures private, so that Bob can't
see them, if Bob has a shell account on the box and can see Alice's
data as it passes through /tmp?

My /var/lib/photoorganizer-data directory behaves the same way.
Everything under that is rwxr-xr-x or rwxr--r--.

The data is correctly owned by the apache user account (www-data
in my installation) but files should should be rw-------,
and directories and rwx------.

Is this something that can be done globally with PHP or some Apache2
umask setting?
