I have tried this several times and I do not know why it is not working. Here's the story from the beginning...
Last week, I migrated my WP install from single site to multisite. I had the main site's files going to a special directory outside of wp-content/uploads, and everything was working fine.
Updated to multisite, and everything still works. I can even see the paths to the files on the server, which are as follows:
Now I created a subdomain and wanted to use similar settings, but for whatever reason, it just is not working. WordPress is not using the settings that I put into the same places for this subdomain. This is what I am using for the subdomain:
Upload Path: media/images/cities/cityname
Upload URL Path: http://images.mydomain.com/cities/cityname
Fileupload Url: http://www.mydomain.com/media/images/cities/cityname
I wanted all of the uploaded images fr all sites to have the http://images.mydomain.com "prefix." Can someone please help and tell me why this is not working?
