Where are the Images Stored?

    Can you please advise me where the images are stored?

    Are they in the default xenforo data folders?

    Can the image location be changed to use a Sub Domain even if my community is in mydomain.com/community.

    I am thinking of disk space.

    BTW. I made a typo on the title. 'Where are the Images Stored'

    Thanks In advance.

    The images/attachemnts are stored in the same location as all other attachments/images from the forum, resource manager, etc.

    The location can be changed - see the FAQ in my signature on xenforo.com for how to achieve that.

    Thanks for your reply Brogan. I have had a look xf.com and it is possible to store in a sub domain providing it is on the same server.

    I guess to store them on another server could be tricky but not impossible.

    Is it possible or how hard would it be to create a script that changes the default storage location of this addon to store images on another server. (perhaps by FTP)

    Thanks In Advance

    I have no idea how to do it on another server.
    I recall Mike saying it was difficult and I'm not sure if anyone has ever done it.

    I've tested it with FTP and S3, and it works well. I currently have it serving them from the data directory and it allows them to be served via a CDN
