I wanted to load audios in a separate domain, so I created a sub-domain under the existing domain, resulting in the following:
I loaded a few MP3s into that directory, and then tested by using the following address in my browser: http://audios.foobar.com/test.mp3 and this worked perfectly.
However, when I put http://audios.foobar.com/ into the "Default path" setting, I get this error below the textbox:
Unable to read or locate the folder http://audios.foobar.com check the path and folder permissions
I tried adding a sub-directory there - no luck. I tried every combinations of URL in the textbox - no luck.
When I put a folder "audios/" directly under my existing domain, it works just fine.
