  • Questions about file attachments

    If I allow my users to attach files to their posts:

    1. Where do the files actually get stored when they upload from their local drive.

    2. How long do the files stay there once they are uploaded?

    I have disabled this function for now out of fear that I would get a bunch of files uploaded into my database and have no way of deleting them all after a certain period of time.

    1) They are stored in the database
    2) They remain as long as the post they are attached to remains. However they can be manually deleted from telnet or phpMyAdmin
