Add pictures from locally mounted drive

Hi,

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
Piwigo URL:

Cheers

Re: Add pictures from locally mounted drive

See the FTP+Synchronization method for adding picture

Re: Add pictures from locally mounted drive

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!

Re: Add pictures from locally mounted drive

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).
