I recently moved my website to a new host. When I moved the site lost a few thousand photos. It might sound like a lot but had 22,0000 small jpegs. I am trying to replace the files by going through the media library and deleting the missing files and reuploading them back into the gallery. My media gallery saves them in folders by month I think. So I am deleting the files at like page 1021 in my media library and when I reupload them they are now on page one. But I think they are going back into the old folder from like 2010 month 10 I think because the feature images are showing up atomatically. But it seems like doing all this deleting and uploading is putting stress on the server?
Should I be doing this by ftp ?
If so I don’t even know where the photos are stored.
Or is wat I am doing the write way just don’t want to be confusing the wordpress cpu or whatever runs my site and slowing down my website by having the folders all confused.
This is my gallery so you can see how large it is and see the wholes in it.
Any help would be appreciated!!!!
