Support » Networking WordPress » Changing the default upload folder location

  • Resolved tanver


    Hi, I have an updated to WP 3.0 – Multisite – installation from WordPress MU v2.9.2 initially installed and configured by WPMUDEV and hosted on psek.
    On one of the domains I have installed the ‘TwentTen v1.1’ theme and am trying to change its header image. The theme expects the custom header image files to be found at ..wp-contents/files where as when I upload the image files – interestingly – the are placed under
    ..wp-contents//blogs.dir/15/files, where as the theme expects them to be the former location.
    I have tried changing the upload locations by editing the site but that is having no effect. Please help as to why it is behaving like this?

  • It’s failing becasue the other upload folder is getting an extra slash in the URL. That’s the problem that needs fixing. 😉

    Oh sorry, it is just type mistake by me when writing the post.

    Well, the built in header uploader is able to handle the different sub-blog uploads folders put in there by the network feature. That’s how is setup, for example.

    So, a link to your site would help.

    Sorry was out of my work place.
    I figured it out that it was the missing .htaccess file which was causing the problem, don’t know whether it is correct or not.

    I just put the .htaccess file from the location I copied the other files for the installation and it work’d perfectly.

    This is the source installation:, and here is the target which was causing problem

    Thanks for your support.
