Not saving metadata after server migration....(Now can't upload images - Internal Server Error)

edited August 2013 in Troubleshooting
Either trying to add or modify metadata elements on objects results in the changed or added metadata elements not being saved. It worked properly on my dev server, but this started happening ever since I migrated it to the live server. Any help would be greatly appreciated.


  • Do you have the Suhosin PHP extension installed on this new box? If so disable it.

    Hah. That was the ticket - but now I have a new issue - whenever I try to add pictures to an existing object or new times out to an error 500 when I upload. I'm thinking its max filesize limit in php, but I'll test and report back.
  • Error in error.log is:

    "Premature end of script headers: index.php, referer: http://..."
  • What format are the images? And what image processing back-end are you using?
  • .jpg, and ImageMagick

    Increasing filesize, post and memory resources in the php.ini didn't fix it.
  • Try using disabling ImageMagick which will force use of GD. Then upload a JPEG. Does it work then?
  • That did the trick.
  • Ok then it's ImageMagick that's the problem. Are you only handling uploaded JPEG and PNGs? Or do you need TIFFs are well? GD only handles JPEG and PNG.
