    Hi,
    Recently I experienced a problem while running setup. I got a lot of modules with the X (in red) icons. The gallery seems to run fine. I tried several times to run the setup and keeps getting different X red. See ...

    What I found bizarre is, when I click one of the red X, I got this ...

    I even deleted the whole and db and start a fresh zenphoto-zenphoto-1.4.13.zip and got the same problem.
    My server : Apache Version 2.2.26 / PHP Version 5.3.28 / MySQL Version 5.5.35-33.0 / Architecture x86_64 / Operating System Linux
    Any clue ?
    Thanks

    More info: In a fresh install, I realized that the Plugin / deprecated-functions was not checked!
    When I click the button Check depecrated use I got this error message in the log ...
    WARNING: Invalid argument supplied for foreach() in /home/xxx/public_html/zenphoto/zp-core/zp-extensions/deprecated-functions/functions.php on line 78

    The red x normally is a file/folder permission issue. Anything in the server PHP logs (the ZP log is not always complete)?

    The deprecated-functions plugin is not required if you use only use official themes and plugins. It is a fallback helper to fix older (custom) themes and plugins.You should never rely on this plugin as deprecated functions may be removed completely.

    I cannot answer about that warning but - wild guess - may be related to your possible file/folder permission issues. So best check that first.

    Hi,
    I have created a folder « zenphoto » that has 755 permission. I then extracted the latest v1.4.13 .zip file into that folder, created a sql database (zenTEST) then proceed with the installation. There is nothing significant in the log files regarding permission. I used to do the installation always the same way, without the red X icon problem.
    What I found it strange is the fact that every time I run setup, the red X icon keep showing up, but always the same ones ???? Is there something I should do with the permission of folders and files ?

    You would need to check those permissions on the files/folder within the folder. Zenphoto tries to set them correctly on setup but sadly not all servers play along. Actually nothing change on that setup procedure recently.

    However, it is not always causing acutal problems if plugins turn up with a red x. I encountered this on local tests sometimes. Try to enable one of the plugins in question (on mousehover you should see a tooltip which those are). If that works mostly all should be fine nevertheless.
