Error creating thumbnail:
Warning: passthru() has been disabled for security reasons in /home/tolkieng/public_html/w/includes/GlobalFunctions.php on line 2024

An inventory of the image problem:

  • The only major issue seems to be scaling down. The image is 350px wide, and it works on that wdth. It does not work on 250px; it does on 450px.
  • Another issue: thumbs will not display at a bigger size.
  • "Passthru()" is disabled: I'm not schooled enough to know what exactly that means.

The passthru function executes a command. I think that Media Wiki uses passthru for downskaling images. The hoster of the webspace can disable this function in the php.ini file and has done this as it seems. The easiest way would be to ask the hoster to enable the function, but Hyarion would have to do that... -- Eldarion Telcontar 20:31, 6 December 2009 (UTC)
