WordPress uploaded images not showing in media library.


When i upload a new image to WordPress media, it looks blank. The uploaded images not showing in media library. If I click on the image, I can see no image displayed but upload path is available.


Next if I click on edit image. I am able to see the image but when I come back and see in media gallery uploaded images not showing in media library.

First solution is, check the file permission of uploads folder

  • Open wp-content.
  • Next check the file permission for uploads folder. see the permission is 755 or not.
  • Now double click on uploads folder.
  • Look 2019 folder permission is 755 or not.
  • Next get inside 2019(year) folder. 
  • Look 02(month) folder permission is 755 or not.

The second solution is, delete the upload path in your database wp-options.

  • Login into your cpanel account.
  • Under databases click on phpmyadmin.
  • In the next page click on launch phpmyadmin.
  • Select your database.
  • Look for wp-options. 
  • After that click on wp-options. 
  • On the right hand side click the > button to go to next page.
  • Look for upload_path.
  • Double click on the path and make the path as empty. 
  • Instead of deleting the path,  copy it and save it somewhere safe OK. 
  • Click on the empty area you will get 1row affected message.
