View Full Version : Images in db or in a file?

March 29th, 2007, 11:06 AM
im new in it. I decided to buy phoyopost pro for my Vbulletin 3.6.5 because i thing,after reading a lot, that is the best option.
If i have any problem installing i will ask, but one question. Where is the best place to keep images, in the DB or in a file. Is there any post about it?

The images are stored on the server not in the database. It is inefficient to use a database

You are better off having vBulletin as well as PhotoPost store the images on the server...You will have an incredibly large database if for some reason you choose to store them on there.

Thanx a lot,
Now, can you show me a post or tutorial to do it right?
I've seen something about how to do it in vbulletin, but do i have to change something for photopost in order to tell to save in files?

Photopost only stored them on disk so you do not have to do anything more than install the program

As Chuck said, photopost does this by default.

vBulletin has a setting in the admincp (look under attachments) you can change where they are stored.
