Putting /var Directory On An External Device
|Posted: Sat, 2012-05-26 17:38|
I am running a web server on a Fedora 14 machine (also using amahi for those who know it) and have recently installed gallery3. I have had great success with it before, and love the program, but I've run into a snag on this setup. I want the pictures in my gallery (/var) to reside on the Drobo I have connected through firewire like the rest of my media (music, movies, etc.) Changing the location hasn't been a problem before, as I just used symlinks. However, the Drobo does not support symlinks. I tried the help posted here, but when I change the VARPATH in the installer/index.php file, I get the PHOTO STORAGE CAN'T CREATE A PLACE FOR YOUR PHOTOS and am told to do a mkdir var and chmod 777. I know the Drobo is accessible, as my music server can get to it no problem. I also tried changing the VARPATH post install like it said, but when I do that, it redirects me to the "click here to get started with gallery3 page", and I can't get passed that. Any advice?
