Network sits can't find media after site restore (4 posts)

    I deleted, reinstalled and restored my blog network after some hosting issues.

    I have three sites: electro-web.co.uk, miniblog.electro-web.co.uk and photostream.electro-web.co.uk

    However, any uploaded media in the latter two is reported missing. Looking at the Network Admin > Edit pages for the sites, the uploads path is correct (i.e for miniblog it's wp-content/blogs.dir/2/files) and all the media is on the server at that location.

    How can I get the new installation to 'see' the existing media?

    Anyone? Sorry for the bump but I'm sure this must be a simple pointer or setting somewhere that I just can't find.

    Weirdly, I tried uploading a new file and WordPress instantly couldn't find it. It uploaded to the correct folder along with all the other media, so what can't the media library and pages actually see the files?

    Any idea where the path is set?

    It's clearly uploading properly, it's just mapping the blogs.dir/2 folders to the right place that's gone weird, I guess?
