PrestaShop Product Images Missing After Migrating

By | September 4, 2014

In preparation for PrestaShop upgrade, I migrated a copy of my PrestaShop v. store onto a testing domain that resides on the same server.  Ensuring that all system requirements are met, there was an anomaly with a good majority of our PrestaShop product images missing from the migration.


It appears to be a default configuration for Pure-FTPd on the server.

By default, Pure-FTPd only displays 2,000 files; you must configure it to display more by increasing the LimitRecursion.

How to edit pure-ftpd.conf file with CentOS

Step 1.) Open /etc/pure-ftpd.conf
vi /etc/pure-ftpd.conf
(type i to insert text.. command line# vi to save/exit press esc and command# :wq)
:w = save
:q = quit
:q! = force quit

Step 2.) Adjust LimitRecursion
Original: LimitRecursion 10000 8
Adjusted: LimitRecursion 1000000 28
e.g. you can increase LimitRecursion by adding two zeros for size and 28 for depth

Step 3.) Restart PureFTPd
service pure-ftpd restart

Restart success!

Now, all product images are visible đŸ™‚
