I have the latest Assets on EE 2.5.5 and I'm not seeing the files in the File Manager. I have one upload destination called Uploads and in that, a number of subdirectories and files. When I update the index, it takes some time so it looks like it's found files, but the File Manager shows neither directories nor images.

All file permissions are fine and it appears to upload OK, I just can't browse and select anything. Any suggestions?

    Hey Russ - you're on Assets 2.0.2?

  • Hi Lisa. I'm on 2.0.3 and I can't see any domain issues - Assets sees images in the root directory and I can create subdirectories with Assets - it's just not seeing some subdirectories that are already in place, if that makes sense

1 Answer 1


was having the exact same problem with ee2.6.1 and assets2.1.3.

After some deeper digging i found out assets created a new entry in the exp_assets_folders table where it remapped my parent directory to a new entry while deleting the orignal entry. Because of this all the other entrys where referring to the wrong parent_id.

Manually corrected this problem and that seemed to fix the problem.

With kind regard, Bas van Ginkel
