Avatars not showing after upgrading phpBB 3.2.5 to 3.2.7

Today upgraded phpBB forum 3.2.5 to 3.2.7. After the upgrade, client said some of the avatars is missing.

So I have verified the following

  • Folder permission of images/avatars/upload (777 required)
  • ACP > Board configuration > Avatar settings > Avatar storage path > images/avatars/upload

And then tried the following

  • Disabled and then re-enabled avatar uploading in ACP > Board configuration > Avatar settings > Enable avatars : Yes
  • Disabled and then re-enabled avatar uploading in ACP > Board configuration > Avatar settings > Enable gallery avatars : Yes

None of them was helpfull.

Finaly enabled – Enable remote avatar uploading in ACP > Board configuration > Avatar settings. That worked and avatars from other websites started showing.
