Tooo Many Files Per 1 Image Loaded To Website
My webspace allows me 1,048,576 files
PROBLEM is that sytist creates 5 files for every 1 image.
WHY is this?????
Before covid I was able to load 20k to 70k image s every other weekend and it was never an issue.
Now I am being UNABLE to load a 60 k image gallery.
Doing that creates about 300K files.
This is a problem for upcoming events.
How do I solve the image count versus the file count??
Thank you in advance
The problem is your hosting creating restrictions on the number of files you can hold on the server at any one time for your particular business model - one that needs to upload such huge number of image files would create problems for any host.
They all do this, and a 1 million file limit is actually very generous.
Your solution lies in hosting image files off server on Amazon s3, and Sytist is adaptable enough to offer such as solution. See https://www.picturespro.com/sytist-manual/articles...
During the covid years I rarely uploaded large galleries of images and never gave the file count a thought as I was always well below the 1 million 48 thousand number.
It never dawned on me that sytist would need to make 5 files for every 1 image.
new question is
If I upload images that are already watermarked and when processing, choose "DO NOT WATERMARK" , will that create fewer files??
I am still in process of trying to break free of my oldsystem using win XP which was allways Rock solid, and moving into Windows 11, but every step I try to make my working environment easy the differences keep throwing me back to WIN XP.
32 bit systems dont play well with 64 bit systems
Your home system and your website hosting account have nothing in common. The only thing effected is your browser, and chrome is no longer providing updates for anything older than windows 10, probably most if not all browsers are following those footsteps. So you should upgrade your system. Software for 32bit or 64bit are a bit different.
Is there a way for sytist to liimit the number of images created for each image I upload.
Currently I upload 1 image and there are 4 more created.
It seems excessive to require 5 different image sizes (5 files)
so if I upload 50k images the website thinks I have 250k files which technically it does have 250k new files.
I have not tried the amazon s3 account yet as it seems like a bunch of extra complication
Again, this was never a problem in the past when I was using photocart and the early sytist
