I have a rather large (subdirectory) multisite install that exhibits the following behavior:
http://domain.name/site/files/xxxx/yy/file.jpg works just fine
http://domain.name/site/wp-content/uploads/xxxx/file.jpg - Server Error (which it seems is an internal redirect loop -- too many redirects AH000124 error)
Now, I could live with, and probably understand the second URL giving a 404 or somesuch. I would prefer to set up some rules so that this URL would be morphed in to a valid one. (The sites were at one time a bunch of standalone installs, and there are external links bite us from time to time).
How can I clear this up? Any ideas? BTW: the top level blog uses the wp-content path, while the subdirectory blogs use the /site/files/ path).
