Brian Moon's Blog:
Putting files into a database
October 24, 2007 @ 11:24:00

In a recent blog post, Brian Moon talks about doing something he never thought he'd do - storing files in a database. He does, however, have two legitimate places he's found it useful.

Now, most people will say you should never do this. And lots of time they are right. And once upon a time I agreed with them without question. Then I started living in the real world where sometimes you have to do things you never thought you would. Here are the two places where I stores files in a database.

His places are in Phorum, using the method to keep the system's database and file attachments contained and easier to move around, and in the replication of their databases, making it simple to have images for the deals on dealnews transferable to the various slave databases.
