XF 1.1 thumbnails not displaying. full images are okay


Well-known member
Full images can be viewed without problems. However thumbnails are not displayed. When I upload a picture it looks like this:
When I click on Full Image it will be rendered nice in the text editor. However if I choose Thumbnail the image will be inserted like it looks here. The image links to domain.com/data/attachments/3/7651-495181523521523eac43643e564a.jpg but I dont have this image on my server.

I switched servers, is there a setting I have to take care of?

Did you override either of these settings in the library/config.php file?

$config['externalDataPath'] = 'data';
$config['externalDataUrl'] = 'data';

They stayed the same, but I also did all the according settings to domain.net (from domain.com). I don't know what went wrong, but I for now don't use an external data location. My new server is fast enough. I out commented these lines and now everything works.
