Support » Networking WordPress » Multisite Media Files Not Showing

  • Resolved Angela


    It’s rather strange that any files I uploaded to any of the multisites don’t show up. It’s like they never existed. I think maybe there is something wrong with the htaccess rules, but I’m using the default rules.

    So right now, I have uploaded an image, and WordPress is giving me this link to it, but when you click on it, it will just say 404 file not found. I can see the file if I go to the hosting file manager and open the blogs.dir directory and looking for it.

    For now, every time I wish to upload an image, I have to go digging for it, and use the URL, which is extremely frustrating. I wonder if anyone else is having this issue, and how can I resolve it. Thanks.

  • That sounds like a .htaccess that isn’t correct, or one that isn’t being read by your server.

    What’s in your .htaccess and are you using subdomain or subfolders?

    I’m not sure, I’m only using the default .htaccess rules, nothing more. What could go wrong?


    And what IS that? 🙂

    (Me asking ‘what’s in your .htaccess’ is a way of asking you to POST that content here. Also are you using subdomain or subfolders in your MultiSite?)

    I’m using subdomains with a wildcard DNS entry. And like I said, I’m using default htaccess rules as follows

    # BEGIN WordPress
    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteBase /
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
    RewriteRule . /index.php [L]
    # END WordPress

    And here is an example of the image that I am suppose to access it via the subdomain link , which if you accessed it, turns out to be a 404 page.

    Right, you’re using the wrong .htaccess. You missed a step when Creating A Network, i.e. the part that said ‘Now change your .htaccess….’

    I asked if you were using subdomains or subfolders because I know (and documented) that the .htaccess is different depending on the answer.


    Use the .htaccess example for Subdomains listed there.

    Great, the rewrite is finally occurring. Thanks.
