(SOLVED) Error creating thumbnail: convert.exe: unable to open image (picture location) Permission denied @ blob.c/OpenBlob/2480.

Same problem as listed here: Project:Support desk/Archives/Images/002#Error creating thumbnail: convert.exe: unable to open image :Permission denied .40 blob.c.2FOpenBlob.2F2439

The solution was to turn off Imagemagick. I did that, and the problem went away, but the images, particularly small icons, were pixelated and ugly. So turning back on Imagemagick, and the problem returns.

the (nearly) complete error looks like this:

Error creating thumbnail: convert.exe: unable to open image (folders)/public_html/deadrisingwiki.com/public/w/images/thumb/d/d8/CaseWest_04.jpg/120px-CaseWest_04.jpg Permission denied @ blob.c/OpenBlob/2480.

Update:

Searching the web I found this solution:

"the directory had the wrong owner and couldn't be written to."

How do I go about doing this?

i posted a question on this editors talk page also.

Update 2:

Response from User_talk:Porplemontage at halopedian.com:

Well, after the move some of the thumb directories had the owner of root instead of nobody. I just go log into the server using WinSCP and change the owner on the problematic directory to nobody.

I am not sure how this is done. But I will update this thread when I find out.

SOLUTION

Problem: The directories were owned by root.

Solved by User:Emufarmers. This is my own summary:

Use chown to make the directories owned by the correct user. (The correct user varies)
