Can I have a separate folder for my photos? I would like to install Piwigo into my "root" folder and have my 400 or so photos in a folder called "photos". Having Piwigo access the "photos" folder. I think this would keep my hosting server nice and tidy.
Admin / Site Manager :
Another way is to update directly the sites table.
To change ./galleries/ in ./photos/
Note: So others could install piwigo in a directory and then code it as ../photos/
The only constraint is that the "photos" directory must be reachable with HTTP. I mean you can't have photos outside the apache document root (if you use Apache).
Thanks for the help and also for a GREAT gallery script. I didn't know what folder to FTP my photos up to? I had mentioned a folder called "photos" but I would prefer to use the default folder that came with Piwigo. Would that be "galleries"? Do I just upload all 400 to the galleries folder?
There are 2 main method for uploading your photos : the pLoader way or the FTP way. The 2 methods are described in your Piwigo installation [Administration>Links>Instructions]
