File Gallery Location and Tiki File Revamp

posts: 1496

Bernard,

I clearly agree in context to the community recommended
outside-public_html or www point.

BUT. I seem to refer not to the question you answered, but to the
question you did not answer ;-) .

When you switch from database (the least recommended (not) setting, but
still necessary as default), to directory, we can only preset an
existing folder, which actually Tiki can only create reliably at
installation time inside the tikiroot.

The "default alternative option" shall not be empty, as then Tiki fGal
would not work after the initial switch and data might be lost.

So the "default alternative option" in the old way is /files and the
question is, where the new location should be.

As far as Brendan and I the the status of the Tiki directory revamp, it
should clearly be inside /storage ... so for example /storage/fgal or
/storage/filegalleries or /storage/files

Here we need an agreement on the future path, whilst the clear
recommendation to go out of the tikiroot remains and whilst Brendan
extended the security precautions regardin custom files inside the tikiroot.

The current question has nothing to do with ../fgal-outside-tikiroot ,
which stays recommended, but it is about
/where/default-alternative-option/inside-tikiroot ;-)

Best regards
Torsten
