After installing a bad beta plugin, my Media Library is broken across all my sub-sites.

I’ve set my upload directory under Sites > domain.com > Edit Site > Settings > Upload Path to wp-content/blogs.dir/1 (it’s an early install of WP MU)

I can upload an image to the Media Library, and the file is inserted into:


However, the Media Library features the new image file, but:

  1. There is no thumbnail, or it’s broken

  2. When I open the image file says that it’s located at http://billpetro.com/files/2018/3/image.jpg

  3. I cannot edit/crop the image file

    • Image files that I upload and use from http://domain.com/wp-content/uploads work fine

    • If I move files out of http://billpetro.com/wp-content/blogs.dir/1/files/… to wp-content/uploads they work fine.

    • I’ve tried Force Regenerate Thumbnails, no joy

    • I’ve commended out, in wp-config.php the line: /*define( 'UPLOADS', 'wp-content/uploads');*/

    • Security on blogs.dir is 755.
