  • Attachment Upload/download to different server

    Anyone know if it is possible to allow users to upload files to a different server from the one hosting VB/MySQL?

    I understand that I would need v3 or hacks to allow saving of attachments to the file system. But I don't know how possible it would be to do the upload/download of the attachment directly to a different server.

    The main reason for wanting to seperate the attachments is primarily for speed. i.e. Keep the main VB site hosted in-house on a secure server that has a slow web link but we can maintain easily, and have attachements hosted on a seperate server with a fast web link at an ISP using FTP or HTTP.

    Thanks in advance,

    This isn't possible without hacking. You can see if something like this already exists over at or request it.

      A hack like this does exist, I'm using it myself. The hack is in beta stage, but works very well for me. The hack is available at this location:

      I hope you find this helpful.
