> Hello,

> My goal is to allow my users record their own queue announcements and

> Asterisk servers and a Kamailio server which dispatches call traffic

> Additionally, can I place the announcements in subfolders under that
> directory and in my realtime queue table use values something like
> '/subfldr/myannouncement'?
> Keep up the good work!
> cheers,

All of that is possible and is exactly what we do, both for customer sounds
and for call recordings. Just make sure you have resilience in your shared
storage device.

Alternatively, you could use something like Puppet to deploy the files to
all the servers.
