[closed] Image path issues (3 posts)

    Looks like I either put in too many links or too many lines of code, so my previous thread got locked down ASAP. Sorry about that, but I still need help!

    I have my main site and one add-on site up and running on multisite. Today I had a major issue come up with a third site and the host admin ended up pretty much wiping the install directory, so I decided it would be a great time to go ahead and migrate this third site into my multisite install.

    So far, after lots of SQL insanity, I seem to have managed to get the main content back up and running. But when I went to put my old original header image back up, I just hit a brick wall. Here are what I believe are the relevant image path settings as they stand right now:

    Uploads Use Yearmonth Folders = 0
    Upload Path = wp-content/blogs.dir/3/files
    Upload Url Path = http://site3/wp-content/blogs.dir/3/files
    Fileupload Url = http://site3/wp-content/blogs.dir/3/files

    When I attempt to upload a new header image, it is broken. WordPress is trying to assign it this URL: http://site3/files/cropped-Server+Room2.jpg

    htaccess contains the following:

    http://pastebin.com/QwzxLh7R

    Any ideas?

    Next time, please just WAIT for someone to clear out the queue, as now you have multiple posts :)

    Are you using subdomains or subfolders?

    The Fileupload Url should be http://site3/files by the way.

    Yes, sorry about the confusion. Feel free to lock/consolidate threads as necessary...

    I'm using subfolders.

    I have ended up changing ten different parameters, including the Fileupload Url, in ten different ways. None of the combinations has worked so far.

    Each time I make a change I test it by attempting to upload a new header image. So far the result is that the new image is immediately broken, because it is being uploaded to one location but all references to it are looking for it in another location. This is even true for the Media Library. All images, past and present, are broken.

    My Fileupload Url currently matches what you wrote: http://site3/files
