@winsystem can you elaborate on the problem you’re having? I would also verify that the permissions of your files and cache folders are set to be writeable by the web server.

Hi John - i think about this chance a little bit but i gess its not the idea. I tried to change the caching situation by the config file but nothing happens. I my custom template - a single one. And then i use in a section of this an gallery by dynamic objects. So good - but the gal is really slow by preview and show img by colorbox. So, can i change the cache of the colorbox seperately or have i change the db? look here: www.atelier.imdetail.com
Sorry, gal is under Arbeiten - eg grafikdesign

The built-in gallery feature is a bit limited in functionality, to be honest. It only generates cached images for the thumbnails, but uses the original image files in the colorbox, which can be slow depending on the file size. I’ve found I often just use it as a basis for writing a custom gallery for a particular site. For example, to ensure it resizes each file, you would want to loop through the file list and pass them through the Image::resize() method, found in apps/filemanager/lib/Image.php. Let me know if that helps.
