Hi !

Images are being uploaded to database and web directory.

Example : define('QA_BLOBS_DIRECTORY', 'files');//

I tried changing web directory folder permission to 777 or 744 but it does same.

How can i upload images to directory only?

Thanks for your help.

Are you sure the content is being stored in the database? When you set Q2A to store files in a directory, it still uses the database to keep records of the files. The only difference is the image data itself is not stored in the database.

Hi Scott !

You are right. Files are stored in directory and database is keeping the record.  Content column in database says 'null' .

However

If i delete blob tables from database, images remain in directory but disappear from my site.

It means i should keep blob tables and directory files both at same time?

If i keep blob tables for images, would it increase the size of the database too much?

Thanks for your help.
