TRANSFERING FILES VIA FTP

Joomtv 6 permits to use spaces or extern servers for the visualisation and the save operation of contents. Users or administrators can upload videos and Joomtv transfer directly to your CDN and save all the required links. For this functionality the component needs a service that permits the data transfer by using the FTP protocol or SFTP. For the management of FTP accounts and for the correct assignment of credentials to services owner users, are available two pages accessible from the left menu: FTP Server and FTP User.

FTP Server contains all data for the video's upload and for the save operation of the correct paths into the video item. By taking a detailed look:

  • Server Name is the server's name that is visualised during the select operation of available servers.
