Title: Can't find files in "Incoming" subfolders in aMule 2.3.2 / Ubuntu Server
Post by: sevob on January 01, 2019, 12:42:28 PM
Hi everyone,
I installed aMule on an Ubuntu server, it works fine by running it from the External GUI.
Only problem encountered is that it shares only the files in ~/.aMule/Incoming and not those of its subfolders. it is not a problem of access permissions.
Will there be an entry to be added to the ~/.aMule/amule.conf  to force the search for files in subfolders?
Thank you,
See you soon!

Iirc the share is not recursive, so you would have to add an entry for each subfolder you want to share. But in incoming only the files you are downloading or are already completed should be located, so it's very unlikely to have subfolders there.

Hello. The reason is that I have thousands of files (subdivided into subfolders) that I would like to share by copying them in the "Incoming" folder.
thank you,
Happy New Year!

As long as you enter the dirs in your shareddirs.dat, they all get shared. But no dir is shared recursive. I would suggest to leave them where they are and is something like find -type d to add them to the shares file.

Hi Vollstrecker, can you explain the last line of that reply a bit more please? I don't understand what to do with the "find -type d" exactly. Trying to accomplish the same thing as Sevob.

If you do a "find <path> -type d >> shareddirs.dat" every dir in path will be added to your share. Recursively
