Local file Structure

hello, i know this question may have been asked before but i cannot think of the terminology to do a search. I have a file server that uses its own file structure with the os and piwingo running on much smaller, seperate drives. is there a way that I can link that file structure into piwigo, so that i am not transfering hundreds of gigabytes of photos? I have tried using a symlink in the galleries an uploads folder but that does not seem to work?

It must, many people use symlinks with Piwigo (there is no reason it doesn't work, it's a system thing softwares don't see it)
Make sure you don't reverse the link and that the server has read access

Re: Local file Structure

ok, so it was my fault. the links werent being created by the command line. ln -s source_file myfile creates a usable symlink to the photos. thank you
