Upload on network share (1 post)

    Hello,

    I've installed latest WP on IIS 7.X (Server 2008 R2) and I need to reconfigure upload location.

    Upload folder is mapped inside IIS as a virtual folder named uploads and points to share on a local network
    \\IP.NU.MB.ER\\somewhere\over\the\rainbow

    Access to this folder's content is set via local account with permissions to R/W/M.

    Uploading file with WordPress unfortunately ends up with creating blank record in media structure and it looks like IIS virtual folder is not recognized by PHP - WP automatically creates physical upload dir inside wp-content and omits the relevant (virtual) one.

    I should mention, that storage location on remote machine has different file system, but is fully accessible.

    Any ideas, how to solve this? I tried with shortcut (lnk), didn't worked.

    Regards,
    E
