Register FTP uploaded files

feature-request

#1

I have upload a huge amount of files via FTP to the ownCloud Target Folders. All this files cannot be seen in the mobile/Desktop application. How can I manage that the Client apps Show this files without uploaden them again using the app which would last a very Long time?!

Hi, we normally don't recommend to upload the files to the main storage because the files won't be automatically loaded in the oc_filecache table.

The solution in your case:

check if the permits of those files are correct:
owner should be your apache user
fiiles permits: chmod 0640
directory permits chmod 0750

if those are correct, then run the occ files:scan command to the user you added the information.

The files will appear in the sync-client after that.

Best regards,
Carlos
