  • Hosting uploads on another server

    Is it possible to host uploads on another server. Right now, I am using a part of Chris Padfields server from V/O and it's an auto site where people upload a lot. We were looking at getting a rackshack server for bandwidth .. my question is, can I have my uploads go to another server? Just looking for more input. Thanks.

    No because all uploads go into the database. If you wanted them on a separate site you would have to first change it so they are put in the file system and then so they can be hosted from external sites.

      I am willing to look at all options .. I really want to do this because rackshack is giving 300GB/monthly BW and that would be awesome if I could keep my boards on the venturesonline.com server but have it send images to another. When you say file system, do you mean actually make them upload as a .jpg in a folder instead of a database. How hard is something like this? Has anyone ever did it before? Thanks for the fast response!

        I know Kier wrote a hack to move Custom Avatars into the file system, but I don't know if there is a hack for attachments. You should check over at http://www.vbulletin.org/ - if nothing else you could modify the Custom Avatars hack to do what you wish.
