Image upload failed with Rich Editor in 2.8

Tried to upload image or attachment through new Rich Editor. It returns "Request failed with status code 400" while I can see the file in uploads folder.

I have tried update the folder permissions but it doesn't help.


  • By checking the network, looks like the POST requests to /api/v2/media failed, and it got


      "message": "Validation Failed",

      "status": 400,

      "errors": [


          "field": "storageMethod",

          "code": "ValidateRequired",

          "status": 400,

          "message": "ValidateRequired."




  • Since it mentions storageMethod is required, I eventually fixed it by giving GDN_Media.StorageMethod a default value 'local' in MySQL. But should this be in upgrade process?

    Did you run utility/update after you updated your files?

    I'm looking at our commit history, and we removed the column `GDN_Media.StorageMethod` in Dec 2015. I removed the column from my localhost (which predates the column removal, and did have the default set to `local`) and am able to use the image drag-and-drop upload without issue.

    Don't have any idea why that happened, sorry.

  • I did run utility/update before seeing this issue. I thought it handles the database migration but looks like GDN_Media.StorageMethod is somehow not covered.

    As I said, it wouldn't be covered because it's no longer used and was removed from the table structure some years ago.
