So uploading a file appears to work OK. I see it in the file manager, I can click it, get properties of it, look at it via the image viewer plugin, download it etc.

However, it is not where the database says it should be.

e.g. database says the "localFilePath" = 63/63483c9f0dcdffd38af335249ca0fa66 but file "..../files/63/63483c9f0dcdffd38af335249ca0fa66" does not exist?

Any suggestions?

Thanks
George

So found out the issue. I had configured an FTP file server and made it active so the files were sitting on the FTP server elsewhere. Although in Site Configuration settings ->File Uploads -> Default File server was set to "Local Default" which I though meant don't use any other service to upload files? Maybe not. Changing the the FTP file server status to disabled or readonly fixes the "issue" - maybe this is how it is supposed to work?
