I have installed OpenCart on a localhost XAMPP implementation. It all works fine except that no images show other than on the banner. I have not begun any customisation. There are many posts regarding missing images and they mostly say to check DIR_IMAGE in config.php. On my site I have:

Code: Select all

define('DIR_IMAGE', 'C:/xampp/htdocs/opencart2/image/');
(this is the second time I've tried this: firstly with the Bitnami installation, then with a completely manual installation following the standard OpenCart process). My colleague also has exactly the same problem. This should work "straight out of the box". What have I missed?

All advice gratefully received.

Try

Code: Select all

define('DIR_IMAGE', '/xampp/htdocs/opencart2/image/');
Sorry I meant

Code: Select all

define('DIR_IMAGE', '/htdocs/opencart2/image/');
but try both

Many thanks for the replies. I have fixed the issue. The link viewtopic.php?f=202&t=221484&p=809111#p809111 supplied by pprmkr contained the answer:

- When on PHP 8.0, GD uses class object instead of resource ( https://php.watch/versions/8.0/gdimage )
Edit system/library/image.php and on line 119 change:

Code: Select all

if (is_resource($this->image)) {
into:

Code: Select all

if (is_resource($this->image) || is_object($this->image)) {
