Files randomly renamed


#1

On one of our Omeka sites, we have been using direct url links to many of the files we uploaded, and recently a small portion of those links broke in the following way:

Original URL:
http://example.org/files/original/46/492/noun_137857_cc.png

New URL:
http://example.org/files/original/46/492/noun_137857_cc.1.png

All the files that randomly gained the number at the end were in the same folder (files/original/46). Not all files in that folder were affected. It also doesn’t seem to have coincided with any changes to the site as a whole (there wasn’t an update to a new Omeka version or a migration or import).

Has anyone else ever experienced this?

Your using the plugin Archive Repertory. In order to keep the original name of the files, the plugin checks the existing files in the folder and appends a digit if it found one, so there is no possible overwrite. This plugin has n’t change since a while, because it works fine. So it may be related to something else, but hard to say. Check if you didn’t import the same file twice.

Ah yes! That must be it, thank you!
