After clearing Magento’s image cache, the site seems unable to rebuild image caches and certain pages are loading with a url extension ?___SID=U. All product images are coming up blank and look to be halting further loading of the site (no footer or sidebar loading on those pages).
It seems to be a permissions issue? Relevant folder (media) is currently recursively set to 777. But I’m still having issues.
I’ve read everything I could and found no solutions. Changed memory allowance in php.ini.sample to 512M. .htaccess does also have two areas that define this, set to 64M and 256M – would this change anything?
possibly this? – http://codepoets.co.uk/2011/magento-not-finding-product-images-solution/
I renamed folders (not files) manually, as I am a SQL newbie. No change.
Any help is appreciated. Thanks!
Alright, so my host returned the site to a backup from the day before I cleared the cache and at first that seemed to do something, but it has only returned certain images. It looks like Magento is still unable to rebuild the cache, only now it has some stuff in the cache instead of being dead empty. Should I try again all of those methods that previously had not worked? Deleting the cache folder, etc etc?
