I'm using the script below, database settings were definately set correctly, their removed now for security. Are there any modifications I need to make to user permissions for this script to work correctly. Keep in mind it must be able to move a file using "rename". This is running on Fedora 6 with apache. This was working fine on another apache server (godaddy).


<html>
<body>
<?php


//
// Variables
//
$dbServer = "";
$dbuser = "";
$dbpass = "";
$dbDatabase = "imgsrv";
$dbTable = "imagetable";
$dbAliasImgName = "imageName";      //name of field for image name in your database
$dbAliasImgSize = "imageSize";      //name of field for image size
$dbAliasMD5 = "MD5";
$dbAliasAnswer = "Answer";
$dbAliasAgent = "Agent";
$dbAliasIP = "IP";
$currentDir = getcwd();
$uploadDir = "/Images";
$ipaddr = $HTTP_SERVER_VARS["REMOTE_ADDR"];


?>

 <!-- The data encoding type, enctype, MUST be specified as below -->
          <HEAD>

<meta http-equiv="pragma" content="no-cache">
<meta http-equiv="expires" content="0">



<form action="randomimage.php" name=addanswer method="POST">


</HEAD>
<link href="css/Style1.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" />
<BODY onload="document.addanswer.Answer.focus();" >

   
    <table border = 1>
    <td>Add Answer</td><tr align =top>
   <td>


<?php


/* Customise this line to change to your images folder */
$dir = 'Images/unanswered/';
$dh = opendir($dir);
/* The following loop scans the directory specified ignoring folders and Thumbs.db */
while (false !== ($filename = readdir($dh))) {
if($filename == "Thumbs.db" || is_dir($filename)){
}else{
$files[] = $filename;
}
}
closedir($dh);

/* Generate a random number */
$nooffildi = count($files);
$nooffiles = ($nooffildi-1);
srand((double)microtime()*1000000);
$randnum = rand(0,$nooffiles);

/* print the result */
echo "<IMG SRC='$dir/$files[$randnum]' ALT='$files[$randnum]' BORDER='0'><br>";


echo "<input type=hidden name=\"FileName\" value=\"$dir/$files[$randnum]\">";
?>

Answer: <input name="Answer" type="text" value="" /><br>
<input type="submit" value="Add Answer" />

          $mySql = "";


     
         


             
                   $MD5 = preg_replace("[.jpg]", "", $imagename);

No php error occurs, the file doesn't move and there is no database entry added.
