mod: upload attachments in directory, not db

--download mod_attachments_fs: [www.dissurion.com]
--description: Uploads attachments to a directory on your server (must be writeable by the server) instead of into the database. It uses the file id to generate a unique filename so no overwriting takes place with identical filenames.

I thought someone already made this, but couldn't find it. So tried this myself.

for 5.1 only

Your file should be in the directory, and some info about the attachment should still be in the database. Only not the actual content of the attachment, which is not kept in the database but put in the directory.
Keep in mind that the directory needs to have write permissions.
Also, I'm working on a better version now where you can set the directory you like in the admin.

i understand. i downloaded your module, activated it (set to ON), but when i attach file it puts ALL in mysql and nothing to the "attachments" dir :((
maybe there is some settinds that shoud to do? it will be very nice that you write some readme for help to install this module.
thanks.

p.s. I use phorum 5.0.20. maybe this module for phorum 5.1.x?

Starua, your guess is correct. This mod uses hooks that are only in the development tree for Phorum 5.1.

Sorry, forgot to make that clear. :( And you're right about the readme's too.

You mean you wrote the same module and will put it in 5.1?

I thought I had it in the distro. Its in SVN now. You can download it through the Trac web interface or in a recent svn dump.

Hello Brian,

File storage backend is especially important to me (as data posted as attachments are also used by other scripts on my site, as well as for DB storage space). As I understand, running the conversion script from a v3 phorum will end up in all attachments being inserted in the DB. But the fs_attachment provided on the cvs version would only handle new posting, am I wrong ?

TIA
