View Full Version : Avatars; filesystem vs database
Just wondering what you're using and why. Do you think there are any huge benifits of either method?

For offsite hosting of images, it's a must!
Furthermore, photos don't belong in the database. Wrong format/storage. It's an incredible burden, and one that's best to let Apache handle (as it's made to serve files -- databases are meant to store them, and it's a pain to extract data from it's tables. Especially nicely formatted ones with nice complex joins).
