Display of pages and albums not correct

After creation of an album, the display is not correct and photos are not displayed. I think the CSS files are not processed.
The Backlight backend is working properly.

Backlight 2.01
Ubuntu 18.04
Apache2
PHP 7.2

Re: Display of pages and albums not correct

can you post a link to an album that isn't behaving as expected?

Re: Display of pages and albums not correct

Your URL rewriting is not working.  Make sure that the .htacess file from backlight/ in your Installer zip has been uploaded to backlight/ on your server.
If you are the admin then also make sure that mod_rewrite is enabled in Apache and that AllowOverride set to 'all' for the directory that your site resides on.

Re: Display of pages and albums not correct

layout is now OK, but pictures still not displayed. Apparently the photos are not uploaded via the backlight backend.

It looks like you are showing an album-set that doesn't contain any albums. Could you please add an album with some images?

Re: Display of pages and albums not correct

I only created the album "test" and uploaded images. I received the message that the photos were uploaded and thumbnails were displayed, but it seems that photos were not stored on the server and therefore of course not displayed.

I'm actually having the same problem -> but I do not have a .htaccess file in the folder /backlight/ of my installer.zip... I download and installed BL2 several times -> same result... Any hint where this missing file is located?

Any help is appreciated!

The .htaccess file is most likely hidden by your OS/app. In your FTP tool, there should be an option where you can enable to show hidden files.

Re: Display of pages and albums not correct

I added imagemagick to my server and now it is working. Perhaps add this to the server requirements ?

Re: Display of pages and albums not correct

Imagemagick is not required.  Our code uses GD, which is a standard PHP module.

Hi Daniel

thanks for pointing me to this setting... Because there was an htaccess file in the folder /installer/skeleton I ever thought about this option...

I will give a try tonight.
