I am trying to make a change to the URL and Server Path of the File Upload Preferences section, but when I click "update" the page refreshes and the changes are gone. I don't have this issue anywhere but on the File Upload Preferences page, does anyone know what would be causing this?

Thanks in advance!


It might be possible that in your config file that the upload preferences are being set via the config override. You will want to look for something along the lines of:

$config['upload_preferences'] = array(
    1 => array(                                                            // ID of upload destination
        'name'        => 'Staging Image Uploads',                          // Display name in control panel
        'server_path' => '/home/user/example.com/staging/images/uploads/', // Server path to upload directory
        'url'         => 'http://staging.example.com/images/uploads/'      // URL of upload directory

  • That was definitely it, thanks! Pretty new to ExpressionEngine and taking this project over for another developer so I'm still learning the ins and outs. Thanks again!
