uploaded images by FTP not found not found / not accessible (5 posts)

    I uploaded some pictures to my website using FTP but I can't access them

    For example, I uploaded a picture to

    http://www.thebreakupapp.com/Beach.jpg

    but is is not found. Any ideas why?

    Also when I use cyberduck to get the URL of the file it says

    http://thebreakupapp.com/thebreakupapp.com/Beach.jpg

    I tried deactivating some plugins which might be related such as
    WP htaccess Control but it didn't help.

    I uploaded the pictures to a subfolder so you can see it is listed there but if you click on the image, it doesn't take you to the picture.

    Advice? Thanks.

    Ok. I spent a couple hours and figured it out, mostly.

    When you upload folders to your wordpress site via cyberduck, the permissions are set to 600. If you want to be able to access those assets such as pictures, you need to change them manually to 755.

    Steps:
    1. Right click the file or folder choose info.

    2. Navigate to Permissions tab.

    3. Change from 600 to 755

    Now I'm able to see the images hosted on my domain. I hope this can help others who have the same issue.

    One last thing... what is the best practice regarding these permissions and do I have to do it manually every time?

    Why are you uploading via FTP and not using the Media Uploader?

    Or you might see this plugin:

    I am building the app which I want to have in a separate folder from the blog images and content.

    Does it makes sense to do it this way?
