#18272 closed defect (bug) (invalid)

Can not define media upload path/URL in multisite

We have a multisite installation with five subdomains. We do not wish to use the default /files/yyyy/mm/filename.ext structure for uploaded media.

In Network Admin > Sites > Edit (under a subdomain) > Settings, you can set:
Upload Path (eg /var/www/pathonserver)
Upload Url Path (eg
Fileupload Url (eg

However WordPress does not recognise these settings and uses the default format.

If you comment out the last line on wp-includes/ms-settings.php (ie ms_upload_constants()), it does recognise the settings.

  • Keywords close added
  • Resolution set to invalid
  • Status changed from new to closed
  • Version changed from 3.2.1 to 3.0

in ms_upload_constants():

if ( ! get_site_option( 'ms_files_rewriting' ) )

You can add a filter to get_site_option_ms_files_rewriting to return false to disable the setting of the upload constants.
