  • Attachments??

    I recieved an e-mail saying that I was way over my limit on MySLQ I am supposeed to have 20 megs for MySlq and they said I am using 207 Megs
    I looked at MySlq and sure enough I am. I also noted that the attachment table is 160.5 megs. I thougt the attachments were located on my server in a temp folder or something. What is the problem here?
    Are the attachments being uploaded to MySLQ?

    In vB2 attachments are in the database. If you upgrade to vB3, you can move these to the file system.

      Steve, my server sent me this:

      You are currently probably storing files within
      > the VB database, which uses a lot of space, when you should be storing
      > files in your regular web hosting space (in your public_html directory).
      > As a suggestion, you can move the files out of the database and into your
      > regular web hosting space (where you have 1Gb of space). We can give you a
      > few extra days to check this.

        As I said this option is not in vB2. You can either install a hack to do this (check vbulletin.org) or upgrade to vB3 beta 7 which includes the option to move attachments out of the database.
