  • Structure of attachments in vbulletin

    Hello,

    I would like to ask you for a help regarding attachments structure in vbulletin.

    We use phpBB now.
    Recently we got complain from hosting provider that our folder for attachments contains too many files(13049) that are in single folder.
    phpBB currently does not have function that will make better structure of attachments (subfolders and less files in each one - should be less than 1000)

    My question is : how does it work in vbulletin ? Can changing forum board to vbulletin solve this issue for us ?

    Thank you in advance.

    vBulletin stores attachments in a structure based on user IDs.

    So if your userid is 1009 your attachments would be stored in ./attachments/1/0/0/9/

    There is an alternative structure that breaks it down like ./attachments/1009/.. Though it is not recommended for the reason you state above.

      Hello,

      I checked also another topic : http://www.vbulletin.com/forum/forum...-a-folder-help

      Seems that putting files into folders per user does not solve issue. (or yes it solves but not forever :-D)
      Is there available solution like organizing files per year/month.. or something like that ?
