WordPress MU Domain Mapping
Uploaded media not display - Answer (6 posts)

    Problem: When working with a subdirectory install of Multisite (probably the same for subdomain but didn't test) if the subsite has domain mapping enabled, uploaded media does not display.

    Solution: You cannot have a subdirectory off of root named /files. Mod_Rewrite cannot operate if the physical directory is existing. Delete or Rename the /files folder and everything works great.

    If it is possible you should add to the instructions or provide a check when installing the plugin to check for the existence of such folder.

    The /files folder existing interferes with media regardless of whether you have domain mapping installed or not.

    This was not the case for me for the past three years and many WordPress installations. I have been able to work with media on base domains and subsites (without domain mapping) without any issues.

    Respectfully, if it is a known issue one should still add to the instructions or provide a check when installing the plugin for the existence of such folder. It would have saved myself and a few other experts here and externally (who didn't know about this issue) hours upon hours of time.

    You can have a /files/ folder with single WP. But what I said above has applied to all WP networks since the merge of WordPress & WordPress MU (which was released on June 17, 2010).

    Hi - I didn't understand the solution. Any chance you could elaborate? I am having issue with NextGenGallery uploads and although I have the same issue as this gentleman I did not have any success with his solution either:

    Any chance someone can enlighten me to a solution.

    Cheers

    I don't believe my solution will help you. I believe the NextGen Gallery media is handled differently than the native WordPress media upload. I would start a new thread in the NextGen Gallery plugin forum (if you haven't already done so) so that one of their experts can help you out.
