I have a mount external drive connected to the ubuntu machine that serves piwigo. Is there anyway to add those pictures from the drive to multiple albums?
Piwigo version: 2.8.3
PHP version: 5.5.9-1ubuntu4.20
MySQL version: Ver 14.14 Distrib 5.5.53
Okay, sounds easy enough. where do I put the symlink?
See the FTP+Synchronization method for adding picture
Okay I am able to synchronize the photos in a symlink to another directory using the "FTP+Synchronization method". I see output during the process that 1 album and "281 photos added to the database".
How do I get those photos in to an album?
Okay I unchecked "perform a simulation only (nothing will be changed in the database)" and I see that I can add photos to a corresponding album name to the directory.
It works! Thanks for the amazing software!
You could also use site manager and add the path. But that could create a permissions problem (I dont think so as it usually mounts drives readable to everyone).
