Uploading a directory tree

Tags: [user upload]

Hello/Hi/Greetings,

What is the way to upload a large set of photo files existing as a directory tree structure? The objective is to create the album structure the same as the source directory structure. I host my own Apache server so the files and Piwigo reside on the same machine.

Piwigo version: 2.9.1
PHP version: 5
MySQL version: 5.5.57-0+deb7u1 Debian
Piwigo URL: http://

The instructions are in your Piwigo ...

Re: Uploading a directory tree

Many thanks for that pointer. I had much trouble with the sync process due to illegal characters in file and directory names. These names were created long before the restrictions on allowable characters was known and it has been a tedious process to weed them all out.

Are there any workarounds that will allow any, or at least a wider set of, characters?
