    Are the assets I'm uploading being stored IN the database?

    I've got about 4 gigs worth of assets that I need to store references to....I'd love to add them to Images and Documents for storing, searchability, etc but I can't have a 4 gig database...

    Are there options?

    Hello Steve,

    Everything uploaded in Images & Documents is stored in the database. If you dan't want to keep large amount of information there, you would either have to use the file system, or write a custom data provider for the Images & Documents module that would take care of the storage. The second option is of course better, but would require a more effort. The benefit is that you would be able to reuse all the other functionality of the module.

    Kind regards,
