WP Original Media Path
[resolved] Upload URL outside wp-content possible? (2 posts)

    I would like to be able to upload to http://www.mysite/files rather than to http://www.mysite/wp-content/files. So far I haven't been able to achieve that wit this plugin. Files do get uploaded to /files folder but they can't be found. I get 404 error every time when trying to open http://www.mysite/wp-content/files/file.pdf.

    Store uploads in this folder: files
    Full URL path to files: http://www.mysite/files

    Am I doing something wrong here?
    I have another site which works just fine with above settings.

    To answer my self: yes, it's possible to have upload url outside wp-content folder but only if the folder is not named "files". For some reason I got 404 error every time I tried to open files uploaded into mysite/files folder. As soon as I changed the name of the folder, everything started working normally I can now open files uploaded to a folder outside wp-content.
