I have a network of two qa websites, one on http://www. and the other on a subdomain http://posts.

http://www. qa-config.php

define('QA_MYSQL_TABLE_PREFIX', 'qa_');
//define('QA_MYSQL_USERS_PREFIX', 'qa_');
define('QA_BLOBS_DIRECTORY', 'media');

http://posts. qa-config.php

define('QA_MYSQL_TABLE_PREFIX', 'in_');
define('QA_MYSQL_USERS_PREFIX', 'qa_');
define('QA_BLOBS_DIRECTORY', '/home/dreamscr/public_html/www/media'); <-- http://www. website

Yesterday all the avatar images were working fine but, now when I check the profile page the images don't load. The strange thing is, it doesn't happen on all the profiles and the thumbnails seem to be showing fine.

Any advice will be very welcome

I'm not sure, I cleared my cache and have removed all avatars not showing properly, checked the db and it all seems to tie up now. I have asked my users to re-upload their avatars, fingers crossed. It could have been caused by my edits in the qa-config.php for the image directory. I tried a few things before I could get it to work, initially. I struggled a little setting the correct directory on my sub-domain for the media directory on the main domain.
