[resolved] Images upload to correct folder but return 404's (5 posts)

    When I try uploading images, it uploads them correctly to the FTP site (in the wp-content/uploads/[year]/[month] folder). Via FTP, I can download and view all of the crop sizes and they all look normal. However, in wp-admin they show up as broken images, and when I go to view the image in its own tab, I get a 404 page. Web inspector in wp-admin is showing 404s for the thumbnails too, even though the URLs look correct.

    Any ideas? In my wp-config, I have defined the following, in order to skip through the "enter your connection details" screen when adding plugins:


    However, I've done that on other sites on this server and it hasn't affected image uploads.

  2. Are the images on your site broken as well?
    Can you provide a link so that we can see?

    Hey, thanks for your help.

    You can see the site here: http://www.urlgone.com/f29f61/ <-- (I'm using temporary URLs because I don't want this production site to live on in infamy in the Googlesphere, I hope that isn't a problem.)

    And here's one of the images that uploaded into the correct folder but is dropping a 404 when you try to browse to it: http://www.urlgone.com/374a52/

    Here's a snap of the FTP folder they're located in so you can see permissions and all that jazz: https://www.evernote.com/shard/s5/sh/dd594a3b-6e1c-4bfe-a408-ab4a44d38e54/e49005896c61d370884e1b95e9a322cb/res/35967c12-f960-49e5-bdb5-f2fbbce1fbbd/permissions-20130320-174040.png.png?resizeSmall&width=832

    Weird, no?

  4. I would try uploading images without spaces. I think that the % in the url may have something to do with this.

    OMG. ಠ__ಠ You are totally correct. I assumed the spaces were fine as the filenames were url encoded. Oh well, live and learn! Thank you!
