I have a strange issue with my drupal website. I created a image field to let users upload their own user galleries (like favorite images), this is not the profile image. The field works fine, users can upload their photos without limits, i can show it on each user profile (ex, if uid = 10 upload 3 photos, that 3 photos will appear on user profile with uid = 10, not on all profiles).
Now the issue is, in the next day (after the user upload the user photos), the photos disappear, i checked the file_managed table, and they no longer exist, but the entries on field_data_field_user_gallery exists. I tried to reproduce the error and this is what i do:
- I log as user, upload some photos to my profile;
- I visit my user profile page and everything work;
- I change my computer date to next day;
- I check table file_managed and files still exists;
- I visit my user profile again, and no images;
- I check again file_managed and the previous entries disappear;
Anyone has any suggestion for fixing this? I already tried to create a new image field, tried to put in different directory, but always end with the same :/ .
Thanks everyone for your help.
I did some tests with @arpitr and found new data. The error (image deleted from file_managed) only happens if i am logged in as VIP user (a role that i have on my site), so if i am logged and admin or "normal user" or even without login, the behaviour is correct, i can visit the (vip) user profile without any problems. Only VIP users can add and edit user gallery.
I temporarily found a solution using file_lock module, but i want to know and fix if possible why is this happening only with vip user role logged in.
Thanks a lot.
