FTP for File Uploads
I operate on a dialup service (broadband is simply not feasible).
I can use my FTP client to upload files to the server on which I have installed concrete5. Yesterday I successfully upload a 50k picture using the file manager but today with a 1.2mb video File Manager hangs when I attmpt the upload.
Alternatively can I redefine the upload directory for File Manager from my home machine to a separate directory on the server I am using?
Then you can log into your site, go to the file manager and select 'Upload Multiple'.
In that dialog, select 'Add Incoming'.
This should detect the files you've uploaded to that directory - you can simply select them and import them to the file manager (with the option to delete them from the incoming directory to tidy things up as well).
I did see the Incoming folder and wondered about it. Now I shall try what you suggest with a small file to get used to it then try the (for me) bigger files.
Written for a child since that's what I requested...
It's a two step process:
Go to your server site file manager
1. Locate /home/yoursitename/public_html/conc/files/incoming.
You may have to create the 'incoming' folder.
2. Upload or transfer your photos to this file.
Go to your website, log in,
1. Go to your dashboard.
2. Select file manager.
3. Select Upload Multiple (on the right)
4. Select 'Add Incoming' tab on the top.
5. Check the box to select which pics you want and hit 'Import Files'
