Oh, I see. Thanks for your answer. It is a pity, though, because other web services that store pictures, like google drive or google photos, display the same pictures correctly. Maybe when generating the thumbnails, it could read the correct orientation and save it in the database, together with the metadata?

Ok, I will send you an email with a couple pictures that appear incorrectly rotated in FileRun.

Ok, solved it!

Filerun by default tries to save the preview picture at the same path the original file is. In my case, the www-data does not have write access to that path (nor I want it to).

I just created a folder to store the thumbnails (e.g. "/var/www/html/filerun/thumbnail_cache"), and then created a configuration file at /var/www/html/filerun/customizables/config.php including the following content:

    $config['path']['thumbnail_cache'] = '/var/www/html/filerun/thumbnail_cache/';

Problem solved!

PS: but then... why some preview pictures (for smaller pictures) were generated correctly?

Ok, the pictures appear sideways or upside down in your demo too. I have created a folder there called "Not rotated correctly" where you can see two examples.

Yes, it is installed:

root@box-media:~# convert -version
Version: ImageMagick 6.9.7-4 Q16 x86_64 20170114
Copyright: © 1999-2017 ImageMagick Studio LLC
Features: Cipher DPC Modules OpenMP
Delegates (built-in): bzlib djvu fftw fontconfig freetype jbig jng jp2 jpeg lcms lqr ltdl lzma openexr pangocairo png tiff wmf x xml zlib

And also checked in FileRun's settings. The thumbnails are generated correctly (I use the supplied script in a cron job to accelerate the process).

Hi again,

I was still using php7.0, so that may have been the root of the issue. In any case, I ended up performing a clean install. 

Yes, of course. All my pictures have metadata and have been indexed by Filerun (I actually run a script every night to update possible changes on metadata). 

I did some tests, and it's related to the maximum results per search. When it reaches the maximum amount of matches, it stops the search and sorts (chronologically, or however you want) the results, instead of sorting all the matches and displaying the first xxx results.

Sorry to comment on a closed thread. I see that this request has been confirmed. How do you make a search containing multiple tags? I tried using the modifiers AND, &, OR etc., but they did not work.


Even a "See more..." link at the bottom, to load the next batch of files, would be useful.

Ok! Solved!

First of all, I used the metadata_index.php script and it scanned all the metadata successfully (it took a few minutes, but it's relatively quick). So Tags and Dates are now populated. I can run a cron job every night to scan and update the metadata if necessary.

Second, regarding the thumbnails, I created a folder to store all the thumbnails in the filebot directory instead of the default locations (on each path root?). now I keep them at /var/www/html/filerun/thumbnails/, and I edited the /var/www/html/filerun/customizables/config.php with the following content:

    $config['path']['thumbnail_cache'] = '/var/www/html/filerun/thumbnails/';
    $config['app']['thumbs']['output_small_filesize'] = 15728640;

So far, it seems to generate all the thumbnails correctly. You can close this issue if you with.
