For a while i’ve been storing image in my PHP apps in the filesystem,
but with the potential for a Rails project coming up i thought it was
time for a review :0)
In everyone’s experience, is it best to store uploaded images in the db
or just stick them on the filesystem with a reference in the db?
I’ve seen various performance tests and security arguments for and
against each method so it’s difficult to know what’s best.
Does anyone know which method Flickr use? I’m assuming whatever they’re
doing would be a good place to start :0)
