Description of my issue

I just installed wordpress on yunohost on

When I upload media, it does not display. I get a 404 when trying to access it directly through the browser. I can view it over SFTP and verify that it exists.

I did a clean install of Debian 10, a clean install of yunohost, and a clean install of wordpress, but the issue persists.

Any tips?

From the CLI, can you check the ownership of these files with the following command? ls -la <path_to_media>

ls -la /var/www/wordpress/wp-content/2022/03/

It looks like the permissions are not quite the right ones. Let’s fix that and see if that’s better:

sudo su
chmod 750 "$final_path"
chmod -R o-rwx "$final_path"
chown -R $app:www-data "$final_path"
chmod 400 "$final_path/wp-config.php"
chown $app:$app "$final_path/wp-config.php"

Then restart PHP-FPM: systemctl restart php7.3-fpm

Actually, you wrote

Do you mean you try to open something like https://yourdomain.tld/wordpress/2022/03/20220324_162225.jpg? If so, I’m not sure Wordpress would allow that. However, can you load the media in an post and see if they are displayed? If not, check your browser console and network dev tools to check what actual addresses end up with an error 404.

That worked.

These URLs did not load an image before. They do after updating permissions. Thank you.

Both load without issue.

I guess I should open a bug against the yunohost wordpress installer for setting the file permissions incorrectly?

It actually was already filed: Accessing uploaded files broken since PR 155 · Issue #156 · YunoHost-Apps/wordpress_ynh · GitHub
