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
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.
