I am not loosing images. The actual images are in the images folder.
I am loosing the field names that are entered in the table.
eg in a table I may have a field names say image1 image2 image3 etc
The data referring to the image that has been inserted with a new record goes missing, it seem for new records only.
After the field names disappeared from the table I inserted the image field names manually via phpmyadmin Edit Mode and they disappeared again.
Twice I did this.
I did insert a new test record this morning and so far the images appear normally. Be interesting to see if they stick.
