  • Attachments on different server

    I am storing the attachments of my forum in the file system, and they got very big. It wasn't a problem because I had a large hosting space on the server, but I decided to transfer the forum to another server that I don't have so much space on it, so transferring the attachments will be a problem.

    My question is: Can I leave the attachments on the old server and point to them in the forum on the new server, so the attachments will be on a different server than the forum? I tried to do so but I got a message that the forum couldn't write a test file on the specified path. So is there any way to get this working?

    No sorry, there is no option to do this.
