I am having an issue in Settings - Resource URLs where the [civicrm.files] variable is detecting incorrectly. It's actually detecting as https://www.mydomain.org/usr/home/webhoster/mydomain.org/wp-content/plugins/files/civicrm/

Is there an override I can put in my civi URL variable settings file to make it right? Or do I need to get a tweak to my server?

If those tokens aren't working for you, it's OK to use the absolute URL or path without the token instead. Would that solve the problem for you?


There seem to have been a few questions about this recently. I haven't run into it myself, but got an impression this may relate to symlinks in the webserver path.

There has been a bit of work recently regarding miscalculation of [civicrm.files] values - contributing information to these linked discussions may help to get the problem resolved:

  • Yeah it works fine, and it could well be a symlink issue. Thanks anyway!
