Updating thumb.php broke my images
I just updated the “thumb.php” file as directed in this forum, only to have all my “uploaded” images stop working. If I look at the url that the code is displaying it looks like this:
and for some reason, it’s not working. Any ideas?
The latest version of the timthumb script can be found here:
First, try updating the contensof thumb.php with this one, make sure the cache directory is writable (try 755 & 777) and owned by the same user.
I have seen one other occurrence of this in a shared hosting environment. The permissions with this update can be a little tricky. If you must roll back to the previous version, make sure the allow external variable is false so you won’t be compromising your site’s security.
Ok, I just tried to update the file again and I checked the permissions which appear to be fine, and it’s still not showing those images… Where can I get the old file?
After I uploaded the old file, it’s working again… huh. Well, I’ve set that variable to false, and I guess I’ll just leave it.
Thanks for all you help on this!
No problem. This one should be secure.
For safe measure, keep checking the updates with v.2. Hopefully they’ll get the issue sorted out pretty soon.
