    I'm trying to replace the OpenAccessBlobStorageProvider with a custom implementation in Sitefinity 6.3.5, where the site is already in production and a whole bunch of media content was added using the default (Database) provider. But I'm having trouble understanding where the provider is used. I would expect it to be used by the Sitefinity HttpHandler or Module to retrieve media content from the database, but when I replace the default with my custom implementation, it doesn't even get instantiated. How is Sitefinity retrieving the content from the database if not by using the provider?

    Hello Mark,

    You can find the currently used provider in Administration > Settings > Advanced > Libraries > Blob storage > Blob storage providers > Database (screenshot). There you can change it with your own implementation.

    I hope this helps.
