File Upload Error

Gopala Padibandla asked on July 8, 2016 00:54

Hi there, I am having problems in uploading CSS file under Media Libraries -> Stylesheets.

I am getting an error message saying "The media file with path 'stylesheets/bootstrap-min.css' already exists in the database. Copy the file to the file system manually or delete the file from the database and perform the upload again."

My question is I would like to know why this happens. Any help is highly appreciated

Thanks, Gopala

I'm guessing that there are already files in your file system with that name. If you're using Azure this could mean you have a file in blob storage and one in storage on your physical server. Sometimes you'll find an orphaned record in the database as well.

To fix it verify there isn't a file already in the file system AND make sure there isn't an orphaned database record in the database.
