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.

Add From Serverは、この様な弱点を補うように設計されています。あなたは、FTP(または好みのファイル転送方式)を経由してWebサーバからファイルをアップロードして、WordPressにインポートする事ができます。


  • インポート・マネージャー。インポートするファイルを選択することができます。ファイルが赤である場合にはインポートすることはできないことに注意してください。
  • 設定画面。ユーザーが「Add From Server」からアクセスすることができるように指定します。そして、ユーザーがフォルダからファイルをインポートすることができるように指定します。


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.

Why does the file I want to import have a red background?

Q: インポートしようとするファイルに赤い背景色が付くのはなぜでしょうか?
WordPressは、セキュリティを向上させるために特定のファイルタイプのインポート/アップロードを許可制にしています。ファイルタイプを追加したい場合は、 の様なプラグインでできます。セキュリティ機能をオーバーライドしたい場合にも、WordPressで「フィルタなしのアップロード」を有効にすることができます。詳細については、WordPressのサポートフォーラムを参照してください。

Where are the files saved?

Q: ファイルはどこに保存されますか?

Works great to solve Safari issue.

My site is a woo commerce site on Siteground, a supposedly WordPress expert host like Blue Host. Their support seems to be pretty good. They’re very responsive at least. Within minutes vs. days for some other hosts. I was having trouble uploading files even just 20+ megs. The max allowed on shared is 128 so that’s waaaay under. But still the dreaded HTTP error. If you use the browser uploader you’ll actually get an error that lead myself and support to believe it was a safari issue. Sure enough chrome uploads just fine. They did try all the http access and php.ini and memory adjustments to no avail. But to me, they’re experts and they should know this stuff. Immediately they should be like… “oh, you’re using safari, right.” But anyway this lets me keep from opening chrome just for this and FTP is simpler anyway. Thank you!!!

Good, but weakened by two important omissions.

Very useful tool, but would be so much more valuable if the user could SORT by unused vs. used! That would make it easy to delete the unused deadwood, then regenerate thumbnails if desired.

Also, even if the user restricts the plugin to a certain directory, there’s no way to choose ALL the files in say the /uploads/ directory, you still have to manually select and process each month of images, subdirectory by subdirectory.

Terrible Support

The entire point of this plug-in is to make images and media on the server available to use within WordPress but I can’t do any of that.

Followed the proper procedure and instructions from the plug-in and it doesn’t work

Started a support topic and it’s been 3 days with not a single response or solution

Fantastic !!!!!

Let me start by saying THANK YOU !!!!
Spent 2 days trying to upload 5 pdf files none exceeding 40 Mb per pdf file and the WordPress media shows 64 Mb maximum.
Every time I would upload I got an HTTP Error.
Contacted Hostgator for help ans even created a php.ini file with new code and that didn’t work either.
I than found a link <a href=” which led me to Adrian Segar comments at the bottom of the page.

If you are tired of trying all the “solutions” suggested around the internet to this infuriating problem, here is a foolproof method to get your images, videos, or other accepted file types into the WordPress Media Library:

Add From Server

So Thank you to Adrian Segar and to the developer of Add From Server.
Once I uploaded to the proper directory via file manager or FTP that’s when ADD FROM SERVER worked like magic.
Thanks again
