XF 1.1 Attachments in Database or File System?

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!

There is no such option, sorry.

Attachments are all stored on the file system.

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 ;)
