Hello and thank you for this amazing app. I have just installed it on my web server and all seems to work fine with one exception… the media files. You can find my server here biom.se/webtrees
I imported the gedcom file from my local Windows comp from this file:
d:\Gen\Falke_Photos is the folder containing my photos.
During the import I tried to understand the remarks about ignoring the naming convention in Windows and added just Falke_Photos as the path for the media files. When I look at a person in Webtree now the photo is missing and there is just a pink square with 404 in it.
I also tried to FTP the Falke_Photos folder manually to the webtree folder on the server but no luck?
Is this problem possible to solve or should I redo the import with different settings?
Best regards/Bengt Falke
The gedfile is exported from My Heritage and it seems it contains hard links to a folder on my local computer as in d:\Gen\Falke_Photos\p142.jpg.
That hard path is also imported into webtrees and as I understand it is the reason for my missing media files.
I tried to copy the photo files to the server in webtrees/app/../media/Falke_Photos and the did a search and replace all in my Falke.ged from d:\Gen\Falke_Photos\p142.jpg to Falke_Photos/p142.jpg before importing it to webtrees.
However still no luck! I am hoping for a hint on what paths I should use or if I can do a search and replace in MySQL?
