Let’s suppose that you copied a magento project to your local server and the images are missing.
Here are some things that you should check it:
- See what owner is assigned to the media folder. To do that you have to execute the following linux command in your console:
To change recursively the ownership of the media folder you have to execute this command:
chown -R username:group media
Do not execute chown -R username:group /
- Another issue that might cause this, is the media folder permissions. You should execute this command:
chmod -R 777 media/
- If not of these are working you should check afther a .htaccess file inside the media folder and remove it!
- Don’t forget to clear the cache from admin panel and also clear the cache from your browser (ctrl+shift+delete).
