I would like to be able to have users upload filies to a path that is outside JForum.

I see in the Global.Properties file you have

attachments.upload.dir = upload
attachments.store.dir = ${application.path}/${attachments.upload.dir}

can someone tell me how I can set up to save files in a different path?

Many thanks,

--Dave

Just set "attachments.store.dir" to the path you want, like /tmp/myuploads or c:/data/application/upload

Note that, on windows, you should use / instead of \

Hello all,

Sorry for ressurect a post from 2006, but I have some problems regarding the avatar's images.

I changed my SystemGlobals to use a specific file from disk "D:", the config line is like that:


But, the forum only looks for the same location, and always give me the error:


Has someone any clue of where can be my mistake?

Cheers,
Machado

Attachments are not the same as Avatar images. They will always be created in the contextPath()\images\avatar directory. These are uploaded first to this location as with an _tmp in the name, then resized to the maximum size with the permanent name. The _tmp file is then deleted.

My first guess at what is causing the error is that the app server can not create files in the images\avatar directory or that you've deleted that directory.

There should be more error information in the log4j log (probably your app server log).

Hello Monroe,

First of all, tanks for the help.
I missed that.

You are correct, this error was caused because the application doesn't have the avatar directory in this location.

Cheers,
Machado
