How to find all your missing or broken images in Virtuemart

If your store has changed servers or you are just having some file backup issues and are missing your images here is a quick script to tell you which images are broken in virtuemart. This php script could easily be modified for other websites, stores, or tables.

Just change a few variables, upload and it will list out all of your missing product photos. Even with an edit link to help you fix them faster!

Joomla 1.5 - virtuemart 1.9
lists product large images that are missing and need to be re-uploaded
Thumbnails are auto generated so its not an issue to look for them.
could be easily modified for other datbases/content i.e. categories


//database variables - copy from your configuration.php
$user = '';
$db = '';
$password = '';
$host = 'localhost';
$editurl ='https://www.DOMAIN.com/administrator/index.php?page=product.product_form&limitstart=0&keyword=&product_parent_id=&option=com_virtuemart&product_id=';
//make sure you edit your full path here 
$filepath ='/home/DOMAIN/public_html/components/com_virtuemart/shop_image/product';

echo "file location:".$filepath."<br><br>";

if (!$link = mysql_connect($host, $user, $password)) {
    echo 'Could not connect to mysql';

if (!mysql_select_db($db, $link)) {
    echo 'Could not select database';
//database query for the fields we need
$sql    = 'SELECT product_id,product_full_image, product_name FROM jos_vm_product';
$result = mysql_query($sql, $link);

if (!$result) {
    echo "DB Error, could not query the database\n";
    echo 'MySQL Error: ' . mysql_error();

while ($row = mysql_fetch_assoc($result)) 
    $filename = $filepath.'/'.$row['product_full_image']; 
    //output the file name and edit link if the file is missing  
        echo $row['product_full_image']. ' - '.$row['product_name']  ;
        echo  ' <a href="'.$editurl.$row['product_id'] .'" target="_blank">edit</a><br>';
