XF 1.2 How do I change the directory of attachments, and manage them?

#1
I want my attachments to be in a different folder, inside my website's root (outside of the forum directory). How can I accomplish this?

Also, is it possible to manage my attachments, such as the name of them? I've seen it done before, but it may possibly be an add-on.

There is no /attachments/ directory.

You will need to move the existing content - adding that to config.php won't automatically move the content.

No, I'm referring to newly uploaded content. After the config file is updated, I THEN go to upload an attachment (on a page that has been loaded after the config file was updated) and the file path still shows up /attachments.

This changes the physical path to them - the attachments route you're seeing is just XenForo's URL. It doesn't relate to where the attachments are placed.
