I want a clarification. Whe run a forum wherein people send messages with/without
attachments. Attachments may contain images, documents etc.. We are actually storing the
attachment in a blob column. Sometimes the attachments are big. And today the table size
has grown to 40 GB. This has created a headache for any maintanance task, backup,
I want to know whether this is the right approach. Or should we actually store the
attachments in directories and just stiore the attachment path in the database.
Kindly suggest the best approach so that I can reduce the database size.
Thanks in advance
