cd p3media-demo

  --migrationPath=application.modules.p3media.migrations \

Directory permissions

If you want to import local files (e.g. FTP uploads) your should also create the import directory

mkdir protected/data/p3media-import
chmod 777 protected/data/p3media-import/


Include the configuration file provided along with p3media.
