Hi, I starting to learn how to use opencart, I have followed the setup steps and able to access the store page along with the CMS.

Unfortunately, it seems it is unable to create 100x100 thumbnails into the cache folder when I upload images, the folder permissions for the image folders are 777. I am currently using XAMPP.

Any idea for a possible fix? Thanks.

Ensure your storage folder is located outside of your public_html folder and to edit the server paths accordingly in both config.php files. Take note that the folder permissions must NOT be higher than 0755 and must be set recursively. Files must remain on the default server settings.

The most generated errors being found on Opencart forum originates from contributed programming. The increased post counters are caused by redundancies of the same solutions that were already provided prior.
