The media folder is always contained in the root of the site and this is where all media files are saved and referenced from.
Is there a way to move the media folder to a different location on the computer (for example to C:\media) rather than have it in the root of the site. And as a result all media items added via Umbraco are saved in this new location and referenced from here too.
I found a solution to this. Basically I moved the original media folder from the root of my site to a location where I wanted it to be on my computer. Then in IIS, for that website I added a new virtual directory, called it "media" and pointed it to the physical media folder I previously moved. It works great!
Happy that you found a solution for your issue and this could probably also benefit others as well.
I'm just posting to let you and others know that it's actually possible to change the default folder by adding an appsetting to the web.config - you should check out this wiki entry additional-umbraco-specific-appsettings
Im facing the same issue, but the link is dead. Do you know where i can find this information?
Please look at Ben Abbott's post in this thread.
Excellent! I was looking everywhere to configure this setting but just couldnt find the solution. Now I have two, Thanks!
I installed Umbraco like an application inside an existen application. I was having issues with the media file, then I create a virtual directory like most suggest and the pictures begin to be displayed. I am usign u.mediaSliderImages.xslt from the examples and when I add a new picture I am getting a error with the path of the new pictures. That only happen with the new pictures in the media folder. Does anyone has this problem? or know how to solve it?
