In order to use the MediaMosa bulkupload facility your system should run a FTP Server to allow users to upload their data to your server using FTP.
A watcher-program (watcher) monitors the upload directory and invokes xml-parser, the program responsible for the actual processing of the uploaded data.
These instructions assume that you are using Debian Linux, ProFTPD and a MySQL database to store the relevant user-data.
To install the required packages issue the following command (with root privileges):
apt-get install proftpd proftpd-mod-mysql
During the ProFTPd configuration, choose 'standalone' is acceptable for most installations.
Now create required group and user (with root privileges); groupadd -g 200 ftpgroup useradd -u 200 -s /bin/false -d HOMEDIR -c "proftpd user" -g ftpgroup ftpuser groupadd -g 60001 nas useradd -u 60001 -g nas nas
