I am very new to TWG, just installed it last night. I read in one post that I can point TWG to existing directory without copying the whole directory and this feature is what I am looking for since I have a huge number of pictures stored in one folder and I don't want to duplicate them in my server.

My question might be silly but how can I do that?
how can I point TWG to an existing directory without copying or uploading all the photos in the directory to TWG

Thank you in advance

Change the $basedir variable to your directory.
The path has to relative to the TWG directory.

I set $basedir in config.php to:

/data/Pictures
data/Pictures
data/Pictures/
/data/Pictures

where my pictures are but in all the cases TWG couldn't find the directory keep saying it is not exist.

still I don't know what is the problem :( ..... hope it is not permission problem since I couldn't change the ownerhip of /data since it is NTFS filesystem

is data below twg?
if not "relative" -> means e.g. ../../data/Pictures

yes data is not belong to TWG so I wrote:

$basedir = '../../data/Pictures';

The error in debug:

09.20.2012 19:56:51 (en) - ERROR 2 in /var/www/twg/inc/filefunctions.inc.php, line 2515: opendir(__/__/__/data/Pictures): failed to open dir: No such file or directory

---------------
and when I wrote :
$basedir = '../../../data/Pictures';

The debug was:

09.20.2012 20:05:10 (en) - ERROR 2 in /var/www/twg/inc/filefunctions.inc.php, line 2515: opendir(__/__/__/__/data/Pictures): failed to open dir: Permission denied


Still not working :?
