    A6092-1.png

    This file is linked to another genealogical database on this server. It cannot be deleted, moved, or renamed until these links have been removed.

    Not quite sure where to look! my rbcsolutions domain has one A-D install. The other is a totally different domain (woodengems) with its own images.

    using FTP, looked at the images location and found image where it belongs. Suggestions where else to look?

    What are you trying to do?

    You cannot delete a media object when it is linked to a family tree. You have to delete the link first.

    If you don’t know where the link is, or think you have already removed the link, then you can search for it in your database. Search the xx_media table. Look for “A6092-1.png” in the m_filename column. Then the m_gedcom column will show you the GEDCOM link.

    Duh, that makes sense! Too logical 🙂 I did jump the gun on that.

    Thanks

    I think I’ll change that error message for the next release. Probably:

    This file is linked to one or more family trees on this server. It cannot be deleted, moved, or renamed until all links have been removed.

    Might that have helped?

    Moment to re-think my steps. That error occurred when renaming the file BEFORE I unlinked and deleted. I adopted Toy Guy’s suggestion many years ago to rename files to deleteMeXXXXX (original name) then periodically tossing them in administrative panel (web trees).

    The message didn’t make sense as I don’t share the images. My A-D family tree also has switch to another tree much as my Royals and Rebbees. But I use subdirectories to keep them separate.

    I can see not deleting if linked but rename should be global if in the image is in fact linked to multiple trees, I think.

    Unfortunately not possible. Yes, we could change the physical file name on the server, but we cannot change the GEDCOM data linking it to each (of multiple) GEDCOM files. The entire editing system is designed to prevent any (accidental or otherwise) modifications to one family tree when working on another.

    The code must cater, for example, for sites that have multiple admins, each responsible (only) for their own tree, but possibly sharing media objects. They might not even know other trees exist.

    Understandable. But if there’s only one tree, one Admin, how would my image be — as the message states — linked to another genealogical database on this server?

    I don’t know, but I can assure you that your database has it listed in more than the one you tried to delete it from. The query used to produce that result is very simple.

    Go back to my first post above here (#11604) and use the instruction there to check your “xx_media” table for the extra reference.
