Support » Networking WordPress » Image path confusion

  • I have my main site and one add-on site up and running on multisite. Today I had a major issue come up with a third site and the host admin ended up pretty much wiping the install directory, so I decided it would be a great time to go ahead and migrate this third site into my multisite install.

    So far, after lots of SQL insanity, I seem to have managed to get the main content back up and running. But when I went to put my old original header image back up, I just hit a brick wall. Here are what I believe are the relevant image path settings as they stand right now:

    Uploads Use Yearmonth Folders = 0
    Upload Path = wp-content/blogs.dir/3/files
    Upload Url Path =
    Fileupload Url = is site 3 in my multisite network

    When I attempt to upload a new header image, it is broken. WordPress is trying to assign it this URL:

    htaccess contains the following:

    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteBase /
    RewriteRule ^index\.php$ - [L]
    # uploaded files
    RewriteRule ^([_0-9a-zA-Z-]+/)?files/(.+) wp-includes/ms-files.php?file=$2 [L]
    # add a trailing slash to /wp-admin
    RewriteRule ^([_0-9a-zA-Z-]+/)?wp-admin$ $1wp-admin/ [R=301,L]
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} -f [OR]
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} -d
    RewriteRule ^ - [L]
    RewriteRule  ^[_0-9a-zA-Z-]+/(wp-(content|admin|includes).*) $1 [L]
    RewriteRule  ^[_0-9a-zA-Z-]+/(.*\.php)$ $1 [L]
    RewriteRule . index.php [L]
