Existing Directories + Subdirectories with large TIFF images
« on: September 13, 2011, 09:36:27 pm »

I'm supporting a graphics designer with distributed artists working for her.  She has an FTP server with her art at her office and remote designers login to pull down snippits to work on.

Problem is they can't see thumbnails of what's on the FTP server. 

I've tried a handful of apache auto-index-gallery plugins only to find them choke on the number and size of TIFF's (200+ megs each, and lots of them). 

I'm fairly advanced with php hackery, my question is more about what coppermine is capable of --   If I create the gallery structure inside coppermine and then edit said structure so it aligns with/points to the root structure of the FTP server - will coppermine find the subdirectories and work up thumbnails for those subdirectories as well?

Take a look here as a start - it will give you more info. than I can here.

I am not sure how much server power you are burning, this might help too.

The developer docs can provide some guidance too.

You could also see if the machines and software that creates those large files is capable of automatically or batch creating thumbs. I understand that you are not using the server's horsepower to run http, but in my opinion the local machine always performs more efficiently for the heavy lifting of image manipulation..

Coppermine won't automatically add new files. You always have to add them somehow (e.g. with the batch-add feature) to the gallery's database.
