Importing media from the command line, rather than GUI
I've recently done a new installation of 1.7.11, having not done an installation since 1.7.6. Things seemed to go OK (except that logging into the Providence GUI seemed slower than previously and often timed out.)
I use custom command line scripts from an SSH session to import of all my data from Excel spreadsheets and this works well (these scripts call 'caUtils').

Before importing media I upload all the files to the following directory on the server:
I'd also like to do the media import from the command line. How do I go about doing this in a way that allows me to specify all the options available on the GUI?
