#2423 closed defect (worksforme)

Admin uploads go to admin media folder, not MEDIA_ROOT

I have the following settings in my file:

MEDIA_ROOT = '/Users/ttate/Desktop/fallingbullets/project-media/'
MEDIA_URL = 'http://localhost:8000/project-media/'

I also have a model with the following:

image = models.ImageField(upload_to="portfolio", core=True)

When I use the admin interface to upload an image, it gets placed in /media/portfolio and not /project-media/portfolio, where it should have gone.

After deleting all uploaded images and their associated database entries, uploads are completely broken. Uploading appears to work, but no files are actually uploaded to the media directories. The console gives no error messages at all.

Reverting to the following settings seems to make things work. I hope. :/

MEDIA_ROOT = '/Users/ttate/Desktop/fallingbullets/media/'
MEDIA_URL = 'http://localhost:8000/media/'
ADMIN_MEDIA_PREFIX = '/media/admin/'

Status: newclosed

No one on IRC was able to reproduce this problem, so I'm marking as worksforme until it comes around and bites me, again. Hopefully I'll have better debug info about why it happens next time.
