  • will pruning remove attachements?

    If I use the prune messages feature in ACP - will this auto remove any attachements in those messages. Or are those attachements saved somewhere and if so, where are they saved because I'm sure I won't need them so would like to delete if they are taking up space somewhere. Thank you.

      I don't actually have a working copy of myphpadmin right at this time so can't check that. I guess I need to find out where they are saved to or something and check a different way.


      thnx

        attachments are saved in the database.
        You can access the database using phpmyadmin.
        Do a google search for phpmyadmin and install it on your server, its free

          Yeah thanks I know where to find it, I just don't particularly want to install it yet. - was just after knowing *where* the images were saved exactly so I could look myself.. no worries.. and thank you.

            Do I need to raise a ticket?

            I do not wish to install phpmyadmin - no matter how free or easy it is, I would like to know where the images are saved.

              The attachments are stored in the database. The only way to view the database is through the command line or a tool such as phpMyAdmin.

                  Well if you're worried about losing attachments you could install this hack:

                  http://www.vbulletin.org/hacks/index...ack&hackid=181

                  It moves current attachments and new ones to a folder you want.
