I have tried several times to upload an image from the mobile app… then from the web app on my laptop, with no success.
I finally reduced the size of the image until it eventually worked. Then, 1 message appeared in the channel, containing the correct image.
However, on the server side, CPU was still clogged with
mattermost binary activity until I restarted the service. And the
data/ folder contains 17 copies of the image.
I am almost sure that all these copies are not necessary.
How do I cleanup / garbage collect the
data/ folder on the server side?
Why was this upload so difficult (image was big – 5Mo, but that’s not this big)?
How do I configure the server (or clients?) so that images are automatically reduced before upload?
This is it, thank you for support
I believe that your issue may be stemming from the maximum file upload size in your server’s
php.ini file being too small. This would prevent a file (such as an image) from being uploaded in whole because the PHP configuration file would order the file to cease upload once it reached the max allowed size.
@XxLilBoPeepsxX Thank you for your answer
Well, I can’t manage to locate this
php.ini file, but I doubt it could be the source of the problem.
If the server prevented the 5Mb file from being uploaded, then I wouldn’t have multiple copies of the 5Mb files appearing on the server’s
I suspect the problem is mattermost struggling to process the picture once correctly uploaded to
data/, for a reason I don’t understand :\ But do you have another idea?
I think that you may be able to get some assistance from this forum thread from a while ago. Check this out, and let me know if this helps at all!
