[edit] Is it possible to upload many files at a time?

As of 2013-09-08:

  • There is at least one script for that, based on the API, automgtic by joar. It might not work now in some way due to API changes.
  • if you have files already on the server, you can use "gmg batchaddmedia" in the local shell to import media in Mediagoblin

[edit] There is an SQL error

If you've changed configuration (like enabling a plug-in) or updated the code, you may need to run a dbupdate, please see [2]. The database must be readable (and probably writeable).
