[resolved] What determines WPMU upload folder? (6 posts)

    Why on one server the upload structure is:

    wp-content/uploads/sites/7/

    and the other:

    wp-content/blogs.dir/7/

    do I have a mis-configuration?

    Thanks!

    In my experience (i'm not a pro) the problem are in the database fields and the wp-default fields ... one set wp-content/uploads/sites/id/files/year/month (default) and the other to the old style (3.4-) wp-content/blogs.dir/id/files/year/month (data-base fields) ... if you use a year-month set.

    Why this, don't know, is something that I'm trying to resolve too!

    You can manually set this to the same linking wp-content/blogs.dir with wp-content/uploads/sites (if you know Unix-linux ln command).

    symlink?

  5. You're fine! Don't do anything!

    Why did this happen? Because WordPress changed :)

    wp-content/uploads/sites/7/ - This Multisite was created on WordPress 3.5

    wp-content/blogs.dir/7/ - This Multisite was created BEFORE 3.5

    That's all.
