Support » Fixing WordPress » Images missing from Media Library and Blog, but present in the uploads folder

  • Hey everyone, first of all i would like to post another forum link which will help you guys in deciphering the problem that i am having.

    https://wordpress.org/support/topic/images-in-the-upload-folder-wont-load-in-media-library/

    User @kloesnice has the same problem that i am having. The solution was not found.
    I have tried every method in the post. I know my photos are there already uploaded. And i just have to guide wordpress client to find them.

    The permission to files is right.

    There is no hotlink security enabled on cpanel.

    I have no plugin activated.

    Still i can’t see the images in library and any posts. I just got time to work on this and my website has been stuck for months now.

    Would love if you guys can sort this out.

    P.S. I am able to upload new images in the library. only old ones are gone.

    The page I need help with: [log in to see the link]

  • Hi atizaf, what happened – configuration change or something? – before this error began? Have you tried switching to a 20-something theme? Do you have a backup from before the error manifested that you can restore?

    Your home page is trying to load http://filmicsite.com/“https:/i1.wp.com/filmicsite.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/12/Roma-2018-movie-cast.jpg?fit=640%2C320”

    If I remove the quote marks and the http://filmicsite.com/ the image loads fine. You could probably correct this in the source code, if the images are not too numerous.

    Well @acstudent it is a bit more complicated than that. A few months ago, i was locked out of my account, which happened because of a faulty plugin. I had to disable the plugins from phpmyadmin and restart the blog.

    I have an image(backup) but it will revert back to its previous stage and i am afraid of losing access again.

    Also after that around 6 months ago i lost access again due to password leak(it being part of a data breach).

    It has been a bumpy ride (you can guess)

    There are(if i remember correctly) more than 500 files. I have been blogging since 2015. So yes images are too numerous.

    Your home page is trying to load http://filmicsite.com/“https:/i1.wp.com/filmicsite.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/12/Roma-2018-movie-cast.jpg?fit=640%2C320”

    If I remove the quote marks and the http://filmicsite.com/ the image loads fine. You could probably correct this in the source code, if the images are not too numerous.

    Can you guide me through how to go about this. Also can you elaborate how does wordpress find out where to find the images from?

    Is it somewhere in the config file? May be we can tell wordpress to go to https:/i1.wp.com/filmicsite.com/wp-content/uploads/
