  • Resolved josh


    Hi there, we use your app for the website linked.

    The issue is that they are taking a MASSIVE amount of storage on our servers and we are planning to direct the “WPL” folder to LargeFS. The issue is that LargeFS does not recognize the all-caps folder (silly, right?!) We need to change this ASAP as it will begin causing server issues soon.

    Please advise how to change “WPL” to “wpl” without confusing this beautiful system you guys built.

    The storage is allotting really quickly so from our end this is becoming urgent 🙁

    Thanks for getting back!

    Thanks for your feedback.
    The best option is to contact author of LargeFS and ask them to fix issue of their own system.

    WPL directory name is used by WPL core files and changing its name is not an easy job. Additionally it needs to customize core files of WPL that will overwrite in the next update of WPL so it’s not a solution for you.

    We don’t recommend you to customize core files of WPL. BTW, you might be able to create a symlink of /path/to/WPL in /path/to/wpl path. It might work for you.

    Please let us know if there is anything else we can help you with.

    Okay thank you. For those going through this issue with WPEngine, LargeFS, and the all-caps “/wp-content/uploads/WPL” folder; we found two solutions.

    1. Have WPE “Force” LargeFS. This is not recommended but they were able to do it. They’ll want to add a note for future people editing the LargeFS site though, because any edit will “reset” the function and change the folder-name in the integration to “wpl”.

    2. Remove Gravity Forms from “/uploads”. If you do this you can just upload the whole “/uploads” folder instead of just the “WPL” folder. You can change the upload folder using this filter:

    Make sure WordPress has the correct permissions to write in the folder you specify in the filter.
