Got to get eyeglasses! :|
Will try again:
The server from which the screen snaps came from contains several Moodles and other apps. Have to confess, it's a mess! :|
/var/www/html/ is document root for Apache server.
moodle24 folder resides there.
It is the *code* directory for Moodle 2.4.x+
Contained therein is 'repository' folder consisting of the the *code* for all those repo's that are possible to use with Moodle.
googledocs, picasa, s3, webdav, wikimedia, etc..
Again … that's the *code* - it is NOT where downloaded or linked files are stored. Files obtained from those repos are actually stored in
The data folder for the moodle24 is located at the same level as the 'html' folder
That's one level up from document root but in an area that apache can access.
Inside the moodle24data folder there is a 'repository' folder where the 'file system' repository directories were 'hand made' and where files were uploaded via FTP or SCP. The upload routines in Moodle code do not allow uploading to them via the Moodle user interface. But, their contents can be linked to. That might be a good location of your folder.
Is this any clearer?
