In reply to: [Fix Media Library] image in uploads doesn’t get added to media library
It doesn’t looks like media library problem.
Potentially those another page has another template that doesnt show featured image.Forum: Plugins
In reply to: [Fix Media Library] Error Position XYZ in .media-library-fix not found
I have many files that were manually uploaded to my wp-content/uploads/* directories by my designer. I’d like to have these files pulled into the media library so that I can use them more easily than manually entering image URLs. I think this plugin should do that for me?
Right. But it can find their usage only when images are used from posts/pages content.
Those used by theme files are not analyzed. That’s potentially your case.
In the output log, I see a ton of these messages:
2019-10-21T00:23:40+00:00 post : Position 532 in /var/www/sgf-store/wp-content/uploads/2019/10/.media-library-fix not found
Do you have more than 532 files in those folder?

In reply to: [Fix Media Library] Previous processing was not finished
Plugin stops when PHP process crashes multiple times.
That’s a sign of rather weak hosting plan together with large image file to process.
Usually it’s out of memory error and silent death of PHP.
If it’s your case:
Other than upgrading your hosting plan you may take the image file it was processing, download it via FTP, reduce it’s size and upload back.Forum: Plugins
In reply to: [Fix Media Library] Blank Media Library after manual clean install
Apparently you have more serious corruptions in the database than plugin may resolve.
Start with your backup.
Also you may contact our paid support if restore required.Forum: Plugins
In reply to: [Fix Media Library] Fix broken media library- physical folder remove
You need to update links in all your posts somehow (via database update).
And change media library url structure.
Once done – plugin will find a link to image that’s not present in media library and create entries.
And records pointing to not existing images will be removed.
Above is the answer to your questions.
Question is too generic and you need to try and see.
There are many potentional configurations possible, it’s better to try and see.
Don’t forget about backup.Forum: Plugins
In reply to: [Fix Media Library] Images in uploads, but not organized by year
It works with images when pure /uploads/ folder used.
Thanks for returning back with a solution description.
So it was PHP memory limit issue, when it just can’t load image for resizing into memory and process is killed.
Will try to add more info in plugin’s UI in a case of that situation, looks like it’s rather common problem.
> Will running the processing multiple times damage the image quality?
No. It doesn’t touch original image, only builds original->thumbnails, that process is idempotent.
> On a repeat run, it appears to find errors in the same folders its previously successfully processed – Should that happen?
No in ideal world. But that easily may happen when theme or plugin used that violates WordPress best practices and adds some unregistered images.
> Any idea why it might fail like it does? Might there be something in the code I could tweak to help?
There are 2 types of problems when it may fail – temporary server overload so it fails to process requests, and permanent ones when it just can’t process some operation.
First type may happen when webserver works on it’s edge and extra visitors load comes – it just starts to decline new requests and those issued by plugin will fail. Plugin tries 5 times and asks for manual action.
Second one is when some image just can’t be processed. Usually that happens when too big image was uploaded and server’s memory limit set doesn’t allow to transform that image. In this case you may replace image with smaller one manually or increase memory limit.
> Although it does seem to make it further each time – Most recently it got to within 2000 attachments from being complete!
Since it goes further each time – i’d bet you have the first case.
In any case on well configured server you will have some messages in your error log when server fails to process request. If not – it may be a good question to your hosting provider why you get HTTP 500 and nothing in your error log.
Your WordPress installation failed during unpacking zip archive with plugin. It’s not something related to this plugin itself but server issue. Sometimes it happens on lower-end hosting plans.
Remove plugin and install again, or use direct download link (“Download” button at https://wordpress.org/plugins/wow-media-library-fix/) and install it manually.
There is a chance, i’d say it helps in 40% of cases like that, but sometimes WooCommerce websites become corrupted without any signs of image data left.
In any case you have to make a backup before trying this plugin.
