Now been at this for nearly 2 days...
Using Magento for years, never had this much trouble uploading images in bulk.
'Image does not exist' error when uploading a full product CSV with images attached. I have all images in media/import, all file names match, I have tried changing directory permissions, file permissions, trailing / on and off images. Have tried using Magmi, works fine for imports as long as images are not included..
Worth noting when the above error comes, no products will upload even without images... I have also found at different times the images are being assigned to products as within the product directories the image number directories have existed.
Only have 180-200 products, but 9 images per product, and the site needs to be update twice a day using CSV...
Really am lost for ideas now... very frustrating..
Let me know if i've missed anything!
Update... I have tried using a media_gallery header, CSV imports products not images, have tired using media/catalog/product/1/4 then image name, tried without / on file name, file names contain 3 underscores, have renamed images to remove them.. oddly some image have gone into media/catalog/product/1/4 directory though all of the above shows a 'image does not exist' error..
