Magento Uploading Images Problem
Problem : Uploading images appeared to be very slow or none existent!
After changing file permissions on images folders etc, this proved not to work.
Therefore, looked at tech behind the platform and found that by default Magento saves sessions to the DB folder and not the file folder.
The Solution: In your local.xml file for Magento just make sure sessions are set to be saved in the ‘db’ rather than ‘files’ and it should make it a lot faster.
The change to Magento performance was massive.[divider_line]
