I'm using the attachment mod with great success. I have just one problem (my problem, not yours, but you may be able to help).
I run a backup utility each night but, because more attachments are being added (which are still relevant so I can't delete any of them yet) the backups are becoming very large and take a long time to download.
I have spare databases on my server and would like the attachments to go to one of these. That way I could backup the database with all the rest of the forum stuff and not worry about the attachments.
Problem is, each database has a different name and password so the forum config file would only do for the rest of the forum tables. I'd need somehow to call a second config file which included the name, password, etc. of another database and also be able to direct attachments to be saved there.
I'm not a programmer so am merely looking for some guidance as to whether this is possible and, if so, how difficult it would be.
Thanks for any help you can offer.
I've been down so long it's beginning to look like up..
