Hi,

is it possible to configure an FTP server folder for my media library? (ftp or sftp access)

Thanks!

I have tried to use WebDrive http://webdrive.com/products/webdrive/ but with no luck. Madsonic can´t find the folder. This is the only one I´ve tried, so maybe there is some other solutions...

What OS are you running Madsonic on, and what OS is your FTP running on?

I don't believe you can do it with FTP (haven't tried), but if you "map" a drive (windows) or "mount" the folder (linux), then it CAN be done. I have done this myself. See below for how I did it.

Linux:
Madsonic Server

Media:
Windows 8.1 (also works with 8, and 7.)

Windows: Share the "media" folder's root (ie. D:\Media)
Linux: Mount this location from within the /etc/fstab file with "cifs" file type to your mount location, such as /mnt/media
Linux: Verify path to media, as you would do it through Nautilus (file explorer).

Madsonic: Enter the actual path (as read from Linux) into the media folders location.

**It's best to only have ONE shared folder in Windows, as any more than that will result in loss of connection between Madsonic and Windows (I found this out the hard way!)

I think I've posted a more detailed instructions on the forum here, but I'm trying to do this from memory at the moment, as I'm at work right now... I'll post more detail, or a link to my previous post when I get home later.
