I am using koken on a new Drobo 5n2 - I have installed koken and I can see my online portal where my images should be, etc. It says to add images, just drag and drop them.
I don't want to do that. Is there any way to point the koken database to a folder of images that is already on my Drobo?

Hello.

All images must be imported into Koken. It will not import from a local directory. A key part of Koken involves image generation and caching. Koken creates images by using the image processing software installed on your web server. This process takes your uploaded images and generates smaller versions for use inside Koken and on your public web site. A variety of image sizes are generated for optimum load times across all screen sizes (phones, tablets, desktops, etc). Once smaller versions of images have been cached, those cached versions are re-used for optimum speed and performance. A cached copy of an image is only generated again if you replace its original file with a new version.

In all, Koken has the potential to create 28 different caches for each image you add to your library. That’s a lot of images, and more than most shared web hosts can handle being requested all at once. To workaround that limitation, Koken creates most cached images on-demand as needed to avoid overloading your web server. As the images are generated on demand (when the page is visited) it will take time until those images are created and cached again.
