Installing PMS on External Hard Drive

Postby brafas » Wed Dec 04, 2013 11:27 pm

I've installed PMS onto an external hard drive and got it working just fine. I then tested the portability by switching to another computer. The settings were all reset. I looked into the FAQ and saw that the locations of PMS.conf and WEB.conf were not in the install directory therefore resetting the settings each time I moved between computers. Is there a way I can reassign the locations of WEB.conf and PMS.conf so that I can keep my settings between computers?

You should be able to accomplish this by using custom profiles - viewtopic.php?f=6&t=3507&p=41214#p49895
Although this may only work for the PMS.conf, not the WEB.conf.
I provide NO application support via PM or email, so please post your question to the forum per the Forum Rules.

That seemed to work. Although for good measure I changed the folders from G:\folder\Movies to ..\Movies and it found the directories I had set on the other computer. Thanks for the help!
