XF 1.1 Attachments in Database or File System?

#1
I imported from an old vBulletin setup that stored attachments in the file system. XenForo seems to have followed suit, storing the attachments in the file system after import. I was wondering if there is an option to have it store attachments in the database? I have not come across it yet. Thanks!

Is there any way to change the location within the file system?

I'd like to have the attachments to be stored in /files/attachments instead of e.g. /html/forum/attachments. It means outside the forum root.

Thank you very much. Wasn't able to find this between all the search results :whistle:

But I was hoping there is maybe an option in Admin Control Panel for switching the storage place just by just a few clicks ;)
