#20330: Differences between creating folders for plugins and uploaded media
(problem with safe_mode)
Reporter: pavelevap | Owner:
Type: defect (bug) | Status: new
Priority: normal | Milestone: Awaiting Review
Component: Upload | Version: 3.3.1
Severity: normal | Keywords:
After installing 3.2.1 (into subdirectory test) there is missing URL path
in menu Media - Store uploads in this folder. But nevermind, I am not sure
if this is a bug or expected?
I tried to update Akismet automatically, no problem (only FTP credentials
required). I tried to install new plugin automatically, also no problem.
Directories are created, plugins installed. But when I try to upload some
media files, there is following error:
"Testing-picture-50g.jpg" has failed to upload due to an error
The uploaded file could not be moved to
When I look at "uploads" directory - there is CHMOD 775, but I "Cannot
change attributes of remote files!"
When I delete this folder and create it manually, then everything works.
But it is not possible to organize media into month- and year-based
folders, because they are not working when created automatically by
And I suppose there is some kind of problem in the way how creating
folders for uploading media works. Yes, hosting is limited with safe_mode,
but why creating folders and installing plugins works without problem and
creating folders for uploaded media does not work?
We had several reports from different users about problems with uploading
media and this is the only clue I could find. Maybe there is something
which was fixed for updating processes, but not for uploading media
(especially for creating directories). Any idea?
Also automatic upgrade to WP 3.3.1 works well. But in 3.3.1 there is
probably a bug, because picture is not uploaded, but there is no Error
reported (as in 3.2.1). It looks like media file is uploaded, but only
media post is created and file is not uploaded (there is no thumbnail
(only icon of missing picture). I suppose, that users should be notified
what is going on here?
Summary in the end:
1) In WP 3.3.1 there is no error for users after unsuccessfull media
upload and there should be (regression from 3.2.1).
2) There are different ways to create folders for updating/installing
plugins and creating folders for media uploads and the second way does not
work when safe_mode is on.
