This question may be related to a resolved thread.
I lost front-end (and back-end) access to a lot of JPG images on a site I recently updated to 2.4.0. After synchronizing each file upload directory, I noticed that the system would go through the motions of synchronizing 300+ images, but it would only show a handful if you viewed them through the File Manager. Upon closer inspection, the images that were visible were GIFs and PNGs only.
This is a single-site LAMP implementation running Apache 2.0 (20051115) and PHP v5.3.11. I looked through a legion of forum posts about what could be the problem, so I’ve gotten the following stuff taken care of:
* all files, subfolders, and subfiles of /images/upload/ are set to chmod 777
* /expressionengine/config/mimes.php file is up-to-date and allows for JPG, JPE, and JPEG
* the fixes in both https://support.ellislab.com/bugs/detail/17392 and in https://support.ellislab.com/bugs/detail/17588 to be able to see the files listed in the File fields again (they came up blank right after completing the update)
Is there anyone who might be able to help?
