Pictures in Escenic Content Engine consist of two things: a content item with fields for meta information. This content item is what you search for in Content Studio and what you can desk on your pages and relate to your articles.
These content items live in the database. However, the image files themselves live on the file system of the server running the ECE. There is one original image, typically stored under
and several generated image versions, typically stored under
Now, if you've imported a DB dump from another system and
don't have the corresponding picture files so the server can
find them, ECE will return status code
not 404 as this is considered an inconsistent state of the
system, take the discussion on forum.vizrt.com
To find all images on a given page which return
500 and thus are missing after a DB import, I do:
$ curl -s http://mysite.com/ | \ sed 's#><#>\n<#g' | \ grep "<img" | \ cut -d'"' -f2 | \ grep ^http | \ while read f; do \ if [ $(curl -s -I $f | grep "HTTP/1.1 500" | wc -l) -gt 0 ]; then echo $(basename $f); fi; done
The next step, is to go on the system which has all the
picture, find these pictures and
rsync them over
to the new system.
