It is included with 5.2 and it is called "Event Logging". It should not be hard to find, which makes me wonder: are you actually using Phorum 5.2 or are you trying to run this mod with Phorum 5.1?

Yes, this module is only for phorum-5.2 so you will be out of luck with 5.1.x.

The usual answer to that is: as long as it takes to get stable. 5.2 is pretty stable already and we're moving towards 5.2 beta at the moment. Which means that we are getting close to a stable release. Feel free to try out 5.2 and possibly provide us with bug reports if you find any problems. The more testers we have, the faster the development can move forward.

Hello,

I have installed this feature because the database of my forum doesn't accept files exceeding 613 Ko. Since I cannot configure the database (the forum is hosted on a shared server), a solution for publishing bigger files is to store files on the disk.

The plugin works well, however after having installed and activated this module, files are still stored in the database and the file size limit is still 613 Ko.

Is it a normal behaviour of the module ? Is it possible to forbid the storing of files in the database and hence to free the file size ?

Like Maurice already wrote:

Just make sure that the path for storing files is correct and that the webserver is allowed to write to that directory. The module implements the writing of the module data to disk very paranoia and if anything goes wrong, it will keep the data in the database, so I asume that something is going wrong now. Maybe you could enable the event logging module and retrieve some attachments to fire the on-the-fly conversion. Then check the event log to see if there are errors in there which explain the behavior.

Also, if you look at the storage directory, do you see any subdirectories created at all? This module will setup a directory tree and store the files in that tree. If there aren't subdirectories in there, then things go wrong at a very early stage. The server might not be able to write to the directory or some paranoia PHP configuration by your hosting provider might prevent directories from being created in there.

Oliver

and are you sure that its the database which is accepting no larger files? there's a php setting too which can't be avoided by using this moduel.
