  • Store avatars (possibly images too) on another server

    I have two servers and I'm not taking advantage of bandwidth from a free host. I would like to know how I could use my servers to my advantage as the other one is free and my forum is very active and the bandwidth is high.

    Would it be possible to upload the avatars (maybe the forum images if that works too) on my other server? I'm sure this question was asked before but I've searched with no luck. Surely it's possible but I need to know what to edit (I don't think it can be done straight from the CP).

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Unfortunately no since avatars are stored in the database. There may be a hack over at that allows you to store avatars on another server, but I'm really not sure.
