Support » Fixing WordPress » importing ftp-file uploads into wp file management

  • Hi, I’ve uploaded a few files into my upload folder and want to use them with the wp file manager (attachments etc.)
    But they don’t appear in anywhere in the admin panel! I uploaded them via ftp, as they are too big (upload_max_filesize) – is there a way to import them into the wp file management?

  • No, there isn’t. WP is “aware” only of the files uploaded via its upload interface.
    However, you can use thosefiles if you know the path and filenames to them but they will not work with the ‘attachment’ feature and no thumbnail is created from them.

    hm. Is it possible to edit the database and import the files manually?

    of course that’s possible.
