creating and updating exhibits through FTP?

The title say it all, I was wondering whether and how I could create exhibits and update the existing ones by changing (.txt?) files and uploading them through FTP. I cannot see within the root directory any files with the content of my site. Where is that content actually stored?

it's stored in the database to inform at the installation, to create and update exhibits, go by your web address ?

Thanks Frami. I know that's the normal way of updating exhibits, my question was whether it's possible to do it via FTP.

Sure, it's possible if you want to put in that very custom work (including, parsing, display text files) - but Indexhibit fundamentally uses the database to store and display your text and images.

This is really a question of skill level - you can do anything you want with PHP, HTML and CSS (and text files), but you need to know how to do that.

If I was you, I would start by customizing an exhibit format to conditionally grab your text file(s) and go from there...
