Errors All Over The Place

    Hi,
    
    I purchased Geekshop and installed it successfully and mapped the 'public' folder over to root. However the zip file seems to be missing lots of stuff and the references are all wrong.
    
    I managed to find the locations of the missing images and stylesheets and now the products show up fine, however when I try to upload new images through the admin, I get an error.
    
    Also none of the images show up in the blog section either.
    
    Please can someone fix this?

    Hey James-malach,
    
    Can you let me know what you mean by missing lots of stuff and references wrong? The more descriptive you are the better I can help you out.
    
    Additionally, I'm assuming you did not link up the images correctly. Do you see a storage folder in your /public folder?
    Let me know and i can help you out further :)
    
    Thanks. Talk to you soon.

    Hi - do you have an email address where I can send you my cPanel details? I think it's probably the type of thing that you could sort out in a couple of minutes if you had access.

    So, I just wanted to respond here in case others have the same problem as well.
    
    The server did not have the PHP exif extension enabled which was needed for images on the blog section. You should be able to get this extension enabled in most cPanel configurations; however, if you cannot then you will need to contact your hosting provider.
    
    Lastly the images were not showing up on the rest of the site because the storage symlink was not generated. In laravel all the storage files are stored in the `/storage` directory which is one directory about the public folder so a symlink must be created in the public folder. An easy solution to this is to get the site setup and then login as admin and go to `yoursite.com/admin` and you will see a warning message at the top of the screen that looks like this:

    Click on the 'Fix it' button in the admin and this will fix the image issue :)
