Configuring custom storage for media library

  Previous topic Next topic JavaScript is required for the print function Mail us feedback on this topic! Mail us feedback on this topic!  

The default location of all libraries of a particular site is ~/<sitename>/media. You can customize the location by entering a path in Site Manager -> Settings -> Media libraries -> Media libraries folder.


You can enter the folder location in the following formats:


physical path: e.g. c:\Libraries
virtual path: e.g. ~/Libraries
UNC path: e.g. \\<server name>\Libraries




Please note


In case that you are running the system on a web farm and have the same UNC root defined on all servers, it is necessary to add the following key into your web.config in order for the files stored in the libraries not to be transferred when synchronizing the web farm content:


<add key="CMSWebFarmSynchronizeMediaFiles" value="false"/>
