Media Library on main site issue...no images!

I am not able to upload images in to my main blog on multi-site. Uploader works but shows no files in media library.

I do see them in at
wp-content>uploads>etc.

However they used to be in the wp-content>blog.dir>1>files>etc.

I have noticed a few files there but they don't show up in media library.

This after a re-install of multi-site.

    Hey bangfruit.

    This after a re-install of multi-site.

    The first thing would be to check for conflict. You said this was a fresh install?

    If you do have other plugins installed, even in the mu plugins folder then remove those to ensure there is not conflict. Even if not activated. You can rename the /plugins/ directory to ensure nothing is being use there.

    Try with the default Twenty Eleven theme...

    You can also check your htaccess:

    http://codex.wordpress.org/Create_A_Network#.htaccess_and_Mod_Rewrite

    If non of that works or your already doing that, then take a look into your servers error logs and let me know whats in there.

    Take care.

    I have an update of sorts.

    It turns out there is a "problem" with my database. I now this becasue my host pSek has wiped my site and the problem occurs when I import my backed up database.

    we have been through this twice, its fine until database import.

    How can I be sure my database is correct for wordpress 3.1?

    If I go to Mysites>sitename> visit site
    I see no site.

    I go to network>admin> sites>
    The names of the sub domains aren't listing fully.

    If I go to
    I go to network>admin> sites> dashboard >user
    I don't see the users of the site listed or their role. (most of these sub site have at least an administrator)

    (This will likely lead to not being able to add users which is how this whole thing started)

    I have a few screen caps if this isn't clear.

    Hosting company said perhaps something wrong with the database.
    Do you think I should wipe it again ? or try to trouble shoot it?

    I'm not sure which is the least amount of steps from this point.

    Starting a fresh is easiest.

    If it were me, I would be interested to in troubleshooting it. But that is your choice.

    I suppose it depends on what stage your site is at. Is it new, would you loose a great deal starting again?

    Do you not have more backups? I generally have my servers backup daily. I then keep daily, weekly and monthly backups in an archive. If you have those could you try an old one?

    Its your choice really.

    Let us know how you get on.

    Well I have don't have a large network but I have about 12 critical sites that need to be addressed.

    If I do a "find and replace" in my old SQL (new server) can I just upload a back up to new and go from there.

    I have a few older back ups, sporadic, but I could easily re_build from one of them.

    I'm generally more informed but this is a new issue for me, learning to swim in a monsoon and all.

    I don't see any errors. (Not sure what to look for)

    Hosting company has already reset account either way.

    My back up produces the same problem. I am stumped.
    I have no faith in my hosting company.

    Anyway.
    Here is the access log the current install ( which is producing the same issue as when I started)
