Talk:File system repository FAQ

I already have a folder called "repository" on my server. Why do I need to make another one?

This article is a bit confusing. First it says: "There is a folder called "repository" in your Moodle directory. This houses the code for all the repositories Moodle accepts, such as Googledocs, Flickr etc". Then it says, "This folder is not suitable for creating new folders for your staff to FTP documents into. For the file system repository to work you have to create a new folder named "repository" in the Moodledata folder and add your own folders into there".

Does this mean that you must create a SECOND folder called "repository" inside the existing "repository" folder? In other words, do you need the structure below?

\Moodledata\repository\repository
