Support » Plugin: Add From Server » I can see what is happening now…

  • So I had to clone my site.

    • Somehow none of the images stored in /wp-content/uploads/201X/## made it.
    • I had lots of blog entries and pages with linked content.
    • I did have a solid copy of the site on my local computer.
    • I used FileZilla FTP to copy the original content back into /wp-content/uploads/…
    • Everything looked good, but it just didn’t work. Links would not work.
    • I picked up this plugin to hopefully put everything back together.
    • Odd thing was, the plugin couldn’t see the original stuff either. Of the 40 folders I had within /wp-content/uploads/(year)/(Month) there was only one folder visible in the plugin… and that was the current year/month.
    • With that I realized I may have the wrong file attributes set within the server. The current year month had file attributes “755” everything else had “744”. Oops.
    • FTP tool, Change file attributes, Numeric value 755, yes on Recurse into subdirectories, and TaaaaDaaa Success!
    • My naming structure is intact, so I don’t have to update any blog entries or page content
    • So apparently I didn’t actually need this plugin, but without it I wouldn’t have been able to see what was causing the troubles.
    • Many thanks to the support team for this plugin.
