I am trying to get attachment_fu to store files in a separate
directory tree, so that when I use Capistrano to update the site the
‘public/files’ directory doesnt get left behind, thus losing the
previously uploaded files.
So I have redefined full_filename from attachment_fu to use ‘/usr/home/
sitename/files’ as the tree root, then the model may add
But it doesnt seem to work… I say seem because attachment_fu IS
putting the file somewhere, as I can get it back on the display
page…but where it is going is a mystery.
The files are NOT in public/* nor are they in /usr/home/sitename/files/
I have tried putting the full_filename rewrite in both the model
rfc.rb (which seems to be the logical place) and alternately in the
appropriate controller i.e. rfc_controller.rb
I am still quite a newbie so me understanding what to test from the
console is approaching zero.
Am I approaching this from the correct direction, or is there some
other method to use?
