My media directory permissions is 755, all images are showing up on the frontend except those defined as small_image with the following code:
<img src="<?php echo $this->helper('catalog/image')->init($_prod, 'small_image')->resize(47,47); ?>" width="47" height="47" alt="<?php echo $this->htmlEscape($_prod->getName()); ?>" />
I don't know how to check the ownership of the folder (I read about it somewhere but I have no access to ssh on the server I'm working on).
The small image is not on the ftp, so it's not been created at all and the url simply returns a 404.
What else do I look at? I tried deleting htaccess on media folder but to no avail.
