I’m having trouble getting my Media Library to recognize files that are in my wp-content/uploads folder.
I have a new WordPress blog hosted at A Small Orange (not sure that’s relevant, but the point is it’s hosted externally). I had two .mp3 files that were too large to upload to the Media Library via the WordPress CMS. So I FTP’d them to the wp-content/uploads folder… but the Media Library page in the WP control panel doesn’t recognize that they’re there.
Is there something I’m doing wrong? I’d have simply uploaded the files via the WordPress CMS, but I got the “filesize exceeded” alert (they’re each about 7.5 MB). Any suggestions as to how I can address this?
Thanks in advance.
