Synchronise from galleries

I am trying to Synchronise images from the galleries directory to create an album.  I am new to Piwigo and I have been reading through many forums and have not been able to understand the syncing process and what I am doing wrong.

I have piwigo running in docker on synology.  I have copied a folder with a test image to galleries, plus I have used "sudo mount --bind" on synology to create a symlink from a folder with a few images to /volume1/docker/piwigo/gallery/galleries

when I run tools-sync I get the following.  I am sure I am missing something basic. 

0 albums added to the database
0 photos added to the database
0 albums deleted in the database
0 photos deleted from the database
0 photos updated in the database
0 errors during synchronisation




Piwigo 14.2.0 Check for upgrade
Operating system: Linux
PHP: 8.3.2 (Show info) [2024-02-16 21:37:49]
MySQL: 8.3.0 [2024-02-17 04:37:49]
Graphics Library: ImageMagick 7.1.1-26

Re: Synchronise from galleries

Sorry, I am not understanding your response. 

my docker configuration looks like this

volumes:
      - /volume1/docker/piwigo:/config:rw
      - /volume1/docker/piwigo/gallery:/gallery:rw

Re: Synchronise from galleries

Hi,

Not sure whether this helps, but in my case it was a missing subfolder in the galleries' folder that caused the same error. The moment I created another folder and stored the pictures in that subfolder, it worked. Obviously, images are not recognized if stored directly in the galleries' folder.

Cheers

Re: Synchronise from galleries

As long as you are using docker, you have to mount your pictures folder as a volume.
Like this:

volumes:
      - /volume1/docker/piwigo:/config:rw
      - /volume1/docker/piwigo/gallery:/gallery:rw
      - /my_pictures_folder:/gallery/galleries/my_pictures_folder:ro
