Ampache is a web based audio/video streaming application and file manager. Allowing you to access your music & videos from anywhere, using almost any internet enabled device.
Import Audio Files
Ampache works with audio catalogs. To import songs into Ampache:
- Create a directory for it through the File Manager. For example create
/app/data/catalogs/music. You can upload new audio files to this folder now or later.
- Create a new catalog. You can do this by clicking the
Adminicon (next to the gear icon).
- Set the catalog type to
- Set the directory path
/app/data/catalogs/musicin the path text input
- Trigger a catalog update via the ampache UI to update the catalog.
For larger audio files, ampache often needs more memory to play them.
Unlike other php based apps, increasing the memory limit in php.ini will get overwritten.
The correct file for ampache is
memory_limit = 512M
sudo -u www-data /usr/bin/php /app/code/bin/install/catalog_update.inc
