    Hi Fabian

    I have a hard time understanding the Remote Sync setup and how it attaches to the Root Category or a Sub Category. I have multiple subfolders in my Amazon S3 bucket, and it seems that the sync doesn’t scan below the subfolders on S3, or at least to the full extend, I just get one file per subfolder – so if I have 17 folders I get imported 17 files only. Do you suggest that I setup multiple Remote Sync accounts, one for each category/subfolder?

    Again I still need to understand the workflow here, so I will study your documentation further – but a little help would make it easier to understand.

    Thx

    Maybe this should have been in the “Remote Sync” category of the forum?

    Let me try to give a small description of my setup.

    I have a bucket on S3 with folders, like this:

    /mp3
    /mp3/folder1
    /mp3/folder1/subfolder
    /mp3/folder1/subfolder/file.mp3
    /mp3/folder2
    /mp3/folder2/subfolder
    /mp3/folder2/subfolder/file.mp3

    -or see for yourself: http://m.krishna-online.dk/list.html

    I then create a Remote Sync with /mp3 as the Remote Path.

    After the sync I can only see one file per subfolder?

    Hi again

    Well, tried almost all thinkable configurations, like, only one category folder, a list of identical categories, do not include in filebrowser, etc, and I still get the same error and behavior.

    These errors are with only one category called “audio”, but it’s the same with any configuration.`Remote Sync m.krishna-online.dk on service Amazon S3 with account ************
    Retrieving remote file tree, this can take some time…
    Warning: Could not add remote file m.krishna-online.dk/mp3/. A category with the same path (audio) already exists.
    done!
    Number of new Files: 527
    Number of modified Files: 0
    Number of deleted Files: 0
    Adding files…

    100%

    Path /var/www/web/wp-content/uploads/filebase/audio/Bhagavad_Gita/ is a directory. Skipping download!
    `
    The error is repeated for all existing directories on S3. The result is only 16 files imported, and they are shown in the filebrowser, even when the config is set to exclude from the filebrowser.

    After every failed repeated sync I have started from fresh and manually removed all created folders from on the server, and deleted everything from WPF.

    I tried following the directive in //wpfilebase.com/documentation/troubleshooting/

    I have only tested the plugin on WP 3.6 though.

    Any ideas?

    Maybe I have misunderstood the functionality of this plugin, even though I will be using it to give users the opportunity to upload files from the frontend.

    Right now I actually only need a path/list of files from S3, so that users can download the files, without me having to create every single link manually. The native filebrowser is in addition a nice feature which I would like to use, because I do not like to use iframe.

    Furthermore, I’m also implementing a streaming service from Cloudfront, and will eventually use a player which support RTMP for the streaming. So it’s more of a dual config, for users to either download from S3 or stream from CloudFront.

    I do not have any files for “sync” here on the server, all is uploaded beforehand to S3, before the actual sync, because I only need to retrieve a file-list. Nevertheless, my understanding was that your plugin could fulfill that, and retrieve a simple filelist from S3 and populate it to the database?

    I do not which to be on your case or anything like that, and I know that your busy with your exams, but did I misunderstand the functionality of this plugin? I only bought it because of the S3 functionality, and was hoping that I eventually could use it for more than that.

    The plugin does exactly what you said. Please update to latest version, it fixes some issues with the sync.
