Create Sermons Automatically takes longer with lots of existing sermons

Dear Thomas,

I have around 53,000 sermons now. When a copy a file to audio folder and invoke "Create Sermons Automatically". It seems to trying to match each single files to database to see if it is already a sermon, if it a new sermon is created. It becomes quite slow in here, taking about 10 seconds.
Since I have the file full path of the file, would you provide a parameterized version so that I can call say "Create a sermon for this file /myaudio/path/newfile.mp3" so to skip the scanning process.

Thank you.

Ken

Just change the path to the sermons to another folder. It will have no effect on already stored sermons. It just specifies where SermonSpeaker will look for sermon existing files and upload new ones.
Otherwise use the sermon form to create the new sermon adn select you file from the dropdown list. There is a button which lets you fill out the form based on the ID3 tags of the file.

Would you let me clarify a bit.
My script routinely putting new mp3 into subfolders of audio path, then call by curl http://myserver/index.php?option=com_sermonspeaker&task=script.createAutomatic
It had run for serveral years without problems, until last week I found some times the call did not create new sermons for the new audios.
Today I found out the reason is the it took more than 30 seconds to complete, which is the threshold of max_execution_time in php.ini.
In a scripting environment how can I change the audio path before calling createAutomatic?
For the time being I increased the threshold to allow the script to complete, which is not a long-term solution.
I thought about making separate shell script to mimic the sermon creation process with a definite audio file path as its parameter, but I still cannot make it work.
Please kindly advise.

What I meant was that you can change the audiopath setting in the SermonSpeaker options. This will have no effect on existing sermons. It will just change the lookup and upload path for new sermons.
So after changing that setting, you can upload your files to the new folder and SermonSpeaker will not have to lookup a gazillion files. This will speed it up a lot.

If you want to write your own script which creates a sermon based on a single file, you could make use of the "SermonspeakerModelFrontendupload" class and its "save" method.
But you need a bit of knowledge in how Joomla works.
