Add From Server


** Support for this plugin is NOT offered, This plugin still however works. Please don’t expect support requests to be answered, or « This doesn’t work » reviews to be responded to. **

Please Note: This plugin is not designed to replace the media uploader. This plugin is not designed to be used for migration of sites. This plugin is not designed to re-import your media upload history. This plugin is not designed to Batch import your media. Etc. This plugin is 8 years old and designed for importing singular large files which could not be uploaded through the administration interface.

The heart of a CMS is the ability to upload and insert content, WordPress does a fantastic job at this, unfortunately, some web hosts have limited servers, or users simply do not have the ability to upload large files through their web browser.
Add From Server is designed to help ease this pain, You can upload a bunch of files via FTP (Or your favourite transmission method) and simply import those files from the webserver directly into WordPress.

Captures d’écran

  • The import manager, This allows you to select which files to import. Note that files which cannot be imported are Red.
  • The Options panel, This allows you to specify what users can access Add From Server, and which folders users can import files from.


What placeholders can I use in the Root path option?

You can use %role% and %username% only.
In the case of %role%, the first role which the user has is used, this can mean that in complex installs where a user has many roles that using %role% could be unreliable.

Pourquoi le fichier que je cherche à importer a t-il un fond rouge ?

WordPress only allows the importing/uploading of certain file types to improve your security.
If you wish to add extra file types, you can use a plugin such as: https://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/pjw-mime-config/ You can also enable « Unfiltered uploads » globally for WordPress if you’d like to override this security function. Please see the WordPress support forum for details.

Où sont sauvés les fichiers ?

If you import a file which is outside your standard upload directory (usually wp-content/uploads/) then it will be copied to your current upload directory setting as normal.
If you however import a file which is already within the uploads directory (for example, wp-content/uploads/2011/02/superplugin.zip) then the file will not be copied, and will be used as-is.

I imported close to 4000 PDFs to the media library from our FreeBSD server and it worked like a charm with WP 5.4.2! For me the import limit seemed to be ca 300 PDFs at a time. It was part of a new PDF fulltext search solution with SearchWP since swish-e suddenly wasn't available anymore. Saved me most likely a days of work not to mention keeping my sanity not having to use the media uploader for all those files!

I messed up with WordPress that puts media files in uploads folder without categorizing them. This plugin helped a lot. Now I can import file in library from desired folder. Thanks a lot to the developers!

I was stuck on the migration of images to a new website and moreover copying the files were not listing over the Media Library as its a new installation. This plugin works like charm and in some clicks, everything is done. Thanks a lot to the developer(s). Great work. If you can update the plugin with the latest version support that will be easily accessible for other users over the plugin search. Good luck and thanks again!!

I uploaded a larger file by FTP and couldn't see it in the media library. Used this plugin and bingo! Easy to add the file to the media library in a moment. Thank you.

This worked for me. I'm rebuilding an old site (2015) and couldn't use Tools->Export because there was some corruption in the source process. I copied over the Uploads folder via FTP to the new site and ran the plugin. All media came over. Just make sure you set the imported date to "File Time".
