Piwigo on WHS without duplicating files

I'm at a complete loss... guess I just don't have the experience I need.

I have a Windows Home Server.  By default it creates 2 partitions.  The C: drive has the system on it.  This is where I've installed Piwigo.  The D: drive has my shares.

I deleted the "galleries" sub-directory under Piwigo and created a shortcut (which I assume is the equivalent of a symlink in linux) called "galleries" to the Windows share (on the D: drive) with my photos.

When I synchronize, I get the PWG-ERROR-NO-FS error.

The share has permissions set to allow full control to a guest user and a user with the same name as my Piwigo admin (although the password may be slightly different).

What am I doing wrong?

PS:  Sorry for the double post...

Re: Piwigo on WHS without duplicating files

hello

Windows shortlinks are absolutely not symlinks, they are special files only readable by explorer.exe

you must open a Command Prompt and use MKLINK command

Re: Piwigo on WHS without duplicating files

Here's what I've found:

mklink is not available on WHS v1.  You can, however, use "fsutil hardlink create".  Everything I've read, though, states you shouldn't use symlinks on WHS v1, because it can create erratic behavior.  In addition, it appears that the above fsutil command is only for creating links to files, not directories.

Any other thoughts out there?

Hi,

Windows servers can manage symbolic links (created with mklink) but not IIS : http://forums.iis.net/t/1171204.aspx
