How to change the path to the upload folder of the HTML Editor

How to change the path to the upload folder of the HTML Editor

I am creating a CMS system that uses the HTML Editor application. The editor is embedded in an add/ update page that is in a separate password protected directory in the root of my server. However, when I add (upload) an image to the text area it goes to the upload folder in the CMS directory but not to the upload folder in the root. This of course causes the images to display incorrectly when the page is loaded.

Is there a way to change the upload path so that the images added in the CMS interface are uploaded to a directory outside of the CMS directory?

Yes you should be able to set the upload directory to be anywhere on your server. That can be set in the file manager settings through the ui, or in the config folder directly. I'm not sure what version you are using, so I can't give a precise path.

If you give me a url to reproduce the issue and tell me what folder it uses and what folder you want it updated to then I could maybe give more specific instructions.

Did this help? Tips are appreciated...



I changed this line in the 'config.php' file in the 'kcfinder/conf' directory and it seems to work - although the site is not not yet live.

from this:
$_SESSION['KCFINDER']['uploadURL'] = "../.." . $userUploadFolder

to this:

$_SESSION['KCFINDER']['uploadURL'] = "../../.." . $userUploadFolder
