Where Do Files Go?

Where files go depends on your choices in setting up the store.

DEFAULT - DOWNLOAD DIRECTORY: ARTIST-ALIAS/PRODUCT-ALIAS -- PREVIEWS ALL IN ONE DIRECTORY: NO

Create the category (artist) and product (album) and MyMuse will create the directories.

Then you can upload through the Edit Tracks page one at a time, or by FTP.  If you are using Amazon S3, go and upload all your files. Files uploaded by FTP/Amazon will show up in dropdowns in the Add/Edit Tracks screens.

Downloads
/path/to/your/site/images/A_MyMuseDownloads/artist_alias/product_alias/download.mp3

Previews
/path/to/your/site/images/A_MyMusePreviews/artist_alias/product_alias/preview.mp3

 

DOWNLOAD DIRECTORY: BY FORMAT -- PREVIEWS ALL IN ONE DIRECTORY: YES

Create subdirectories for formats and upload your files.

Downloads
/path/to/your/site/images/A_MyMuseDownloads/mp3/download.mp3
/path/to/your/site/images/A_MyMuseDownloads/wav/download.wav

Previews
/path/to/your/site/images/A_MyMusePreviews/preview.mp3

Once you upload all your files the file names will appear in a drop down in the tracks add/edit page.

For security, if using apache web server, and your download files are within the web directory, confirm there is a file .htaccess at the top of the download directory

download_dir/.htaccess

The default is:
images/A_MyMuseDownloads/.htaccess


This should stop direct downloads of files.
If it is not there, you can copy it from administrator/components/com_mymuse/assets/htaccess.txt ->
images/A_MyMuseDownloads/.htaccess

 

Graphics: MyMuse creates a directory called images/A_MyMuseImages but you can put category/product images wherever you like.
