Support » Fixing WordPress » why Photon is getting my images?

  • Resolved Yui


    sorry if in wrong section.
    Jetpack since some version announced Photon, serving images from CDN.
    I have jetpack, but Photon is disabled, yet i have in access.log entries that say Photon/1.0 is getting images from site.

    IP belongs to Automattic
    NetRange: –
    NetHandle: NET-207-198-112-0-1
    Parent: NET-207-198-64-0-1
    OrgName: Automattic, Inc
    OrgId: AUTOM-93

    Why? I dont have Photon enabled or configured at all

  • Those images are likely related to the plugin, that is the styles in the admin…there is also a smiley added to the bottom of your site if not turned off.

    they not related to plugin, they are post images and have copyright of post author 😛 – – [07/Jun/2013:08:38:15 +0400] “GET /wp-content/uploads/2013/06/IMG_4034-Uniq-Case-Lolita.jpg HTTP/1.1” 200 47891 “-” “Photon/1.0” – – [07/Jun/2013:08:38:15 +0400] “GET /wp-content/uploads/2013/06/IMG_4033-Uniq-Case-Lolita.jpg HTTP/1.1” 200 54298 “-” “Photon/1.0” – – [07/Jun/2013:12:55:26 +0400] “GET /wp-content/uploads/2011/12/price-fight.png HTTP/1.1” 200 63368 “-” “Photon/1.0” – – [07/Jun/2013:14:22:28 +0400] “GET /wp-content/uploads/2012/04/800px-3GPP_Long_Term_Evolution_Country_Map-480×244.png HTTP/1.1” 200 64646 “-” “Photon/1.0” – – [07/Jun/2013:18:38:36 +0400] “GET /wp-content/uploads/2013/05/iPad-Mini-Unbox-Finally.jpg HTTP/1.1” 200 42682 “-” “Photon/1.0” – – [07/Jun/2013:18:38:36 +0400] “GET /wp-content/uploads/2013/05/iPad-Mini-Box.jpg HTTP/1.1” 200 35420 “-” “Photon/1.0” – – [08/Jun/2013:14:11:03 +0400] “GET /wp-content/uploads/2012/03/GiselleJong.jpg HTTP/1.1” 200 197403 “-” “Photon/1.0” – – [08/Jun/2013:16:11:31 +0400] “GET /wp-content/uploads/2012/04/Switch_Kuching_New_iPad2012.jpg HTTP/1.1” 200 113855 “-” “Photon/1.0” – – [08/Jun/2013:18:03:07 +0400] “GET /wp-content/uploads/2012/04/Digital_AV_Adapter.jpg HTTP/1.1” 200 45861 “-” “Photon/1.0”

    Can you provide a site link?

    sorry , you are not related to Automattic or Jetpack
    a piece of access.log cleraly says that Photon/1.0 from Automattic IP is geting images from /wp-content/uploads/ for unknown purpose

    the site is NOT serving from Photon or any other CDN, all wp-content/uploads is served directly by site’s httpd

    external resources:
    1. 1 pixel gif image from (Jetpack site stats)
    2. scripts from s* and

    And a link would let us review that…without a link we cannot begin to assess…if you think the issue is Jetpack related, then you should also know that the point of support for this plugin is with the plugin provider.

    since you are a “Member” like me, thanks for your help, I respect my friend sites privacy, i respect it enough so i am asking why Photon is getting his images from his site without direct permission (configured or enabled Jetpack Photon)
    If you really want to know site – it can be found by google, but i want some official answer from someone _clearly_ related to Automattic

    Then you need to contact them…Automattic runs and released Jetpack…this is

    Then, as suggested above, ask on the JetPack forum – go to the plugin page and click on the support tab.

    BTW, there is no “official” help here – everyone here is a volunteer.

    okey, i ask them

    they use it for resizing images for tiles galleries… not just for CDN
