Cannot find folder where images are uploaded


Hello All,

Whenever I upload an image to my meteor app (1.5.1). I cannot find where the image was uploaded to on the server.

The URL is ""but there is no folder called upload. I have searched recursively on the server and checked the network tab etc to no avail

Previously when I used meteor 1.3.5 the folders was at “app/current/bundle/uploads”

I am using

Please any suggestions or help will be highly welcomed

Galaxy server local file storage

generally you’ll want to use something like Cloudinary or Amazon S3. Cloud servers should be considered immutable; they could restart anytime and it’s unsafe to use as ad hoc storage.

Look at slingshot

Galaxy server upload file to local storage

Another, more comple solution, that I use, is FileStack.

If you use service like Galaxy then if you upload a new version the old container gets destroyed and you loose all the data uploaded to that container. The same issue is if you have multiple containers. Hence a dedicated server/service for uploading is recommended. I don’t know your setup which might allow currently for the approach you have.

In the package you are using the defaults are as follows:

var options = {
  /** @type String*/
  tmpDir: null,
  /** @type String*/
  uploadDir: null,
uploadUrl: '/upload/',

So I would check what settings you are passing in to the package initialization.
