I am very new to this so sorry if this is the wrong place. I have looked everywhere but cannot find the answer.
I need to FTP a large amount of files, including mp4, jpg, pdf, and so on, to a repository from where they can be pulled into my course as required.
I do not want the directory itself to be accessible. So if someone edits the url to the directory root they should not be able to see the file list.
I have full server access and can create directories and set permissions and so on.
When I look this up the instructions start with
"Find the moodledata folder on the server"
which is not there so I am stuck.
There is a "repository" directory.
Can I use this and just add sub-directories as required?
If so what are the correct permissions for the directories I add?
Will moodle then find them or does it deed to be informed in some way of their availability?
Are their full file lists hidden from the web. I note that my /repository/directory gives 404 but repository/upgrade.txt is accessible to the world. Which is what I want.
However if I create a sub directory in the repository directory with permissions set to 755 and put a file in it as follows:
it gives 404. So I am stuck.
Any help would be much appreciated.
