I have just started using craft today and I have hit a bit of a bump with Images. I created and asset for Work and set it up to point to assets/images/work/ I was able to upload the image but when I tried to preview the 'Work' page the image was going to /work/assets/images/work relative URL I am guessing. I tried then to define and environment variable like this:

'environmentVariables' => array(
  'baseAssetUrl'  => 'http://192.168.99.100:8080/',
  'baseAssetPath' => './',
),

Updated my asset group to the following: {baseAssetPath}assets/images/work/ {baseAssetUrl}assets/images/work/

But when I try preview the page the image is broken and the variable has not been interpreted

<img src="{baseAssetUrl}assets/images/work/_360xAUTO_crop_center-center/test.jpg" alt="Test">

And I can't upload the image I get the following error message:

Upload failed for test.jpg. The error message was: “Error uploading 
the file: The file system path “{baseAssetPath}assets/images/work/” 
set for this source does not exist.”

Any ideas what am I missing?

It was a simple misunderstanding of how the general.php should be structured.

I had environmentVariables outside of the '*' => array(

So it's now:

return array(
  '*' => array(
    'omitScriptNameInUrls' => true,
    'sendPoweredByHeader' => false,
    'devMode' => getenv("CRAFT_DEVMODE") == "true",
    'environmentVariables' => array(
      'baseAssetUrl'  => 'http://192.168.99.100:8080/',
      'basePathPublic' => realpath(dirname(__FILE__)).'/../../html/',
    ),
  ),
);

  • Are you storing your assets in the root directory? My asset paths look something like this /public/assets/ or public/media/. – Clark May 9 '17 at 22:18
