Images gone missing from folder

To All, i have created a folder under the image_custom and placed in some of my images. The images actually displayed on the website when i run it but after a few days, the images gone missing without anyone deleting it. Has anyone encounter this before? Or managed to resolve this problem?

It sounds like you  may be on an insecure shared server, and other users have the capability of accidentally or intentionally deleting files on other hosting accounts. I've used a server once where someone deleted all server-created files on all hosting accounts in one sweep, causing serious problems to all the users on that server.
I've advise asking the webhost about this. A good webhost should have measure against this - not freely providing shell access, and locking down and scripting language (such as PHP) on the server.

Was I helpful?
  • If not, please let us know how we can do better (please try and propose any bigger ideas in such a way that they are fundable and scalable).
  • If so, please let others know about ocPortal whenever you see the opportunity.
  • If my reply is too Vulcan or expressed too much in business-strategy terms, and not particularly personal, I apologise. As a company & project maintainer, time is very limited to me, so usually when I write a reply I try and make it generic advice to all readers. I'm also naturally a joined-up thinker, so I always express my thoughts in combined business and technical terms. I recognise not everyone likes that, don't let my Vulcan-thinking stop you enjoying ocPortal on fun personal projects.
  • If my response can inspire a community tutorial, that's a great way of giving back to the project as a user.
