Cached images are not loaded after 2.2.X to 2.3.X upgrade

This article provides the solution for the issue with cached images not being displayed after upgrading from Adobe Commerce on cloud infrastructure 2.2.X to 2.3.X.

Affected versions and editions:

  • Adobe Commerce on cloud infrastructure Pro plan architecture 2.2.X, 2.3.X


After Adobe Commerce is upgraded from 2.2.X to 2.3.X, the cached product images are not available, and a 404 page is displayed instead.

The issue is caused by the incorrect Nginx configuration set in index.php (or none) is used for the "/media" location instead of passthru: /get.php.


  1. Check your configuration file, at the "/media" location. The correct configuration looks like following:

    code language-yaml
        root: "pub/media"
        allow: true
        scripts: false
        expires: 1y
        passthru: "/get.php"
  2. If passthru is not set to "/get.php" and expires is not set, take the following steps.

  3. Correct the configuration file.

    • Starter Plan: correct the file yourself and push the changes.
    • Pro Plan:
    • Integration: correct the file yourself and push the changes.
    • Staging and Production: correct the file yourself, push the changes, and create an Adobe Commerce support ticket to have it applied.
  4. Enable Fastly image optimization in the Commerce Admin (Fastly must be configured prior), as described in

If the configuration is correct, but you are still experiencing the issue, continue the investigation or contact Adobe Commerce Support.
