We are having problems importing files with the CSV plugin. I can import the metadata without problems but when trying to import also the files from an URL is giving a 500 error.
I was able to import without problems from a previous installation of Omeka in Dreamhost but the problem is with a new installation in our server, and the IT staff can´t find which is the problem. We can import files one by one (without using the CSV plugin), but for large collections of thousand of files this is not ideal.
I have seen in the thread:
that nancym had found a solution by reading from a local file path instead of reading from an URL. However, I have tried the piece of code that she gave but it is not working for me.
I was wondering if this feature could be added to a future version of the plugin. I think this could be a great improvement because it would also avoid having to FTP a large amount of files to a web location if we already have these files in our local machine.
