Fixed Mini-bug: Attachments do not work on NFS

    This week I was pimping up my setup a little (since, again, I have exceeded my traffic expectations), and I am now writing all the attachments to a drive shared through NFS, which allows me to do some cluster balancing over the requests while still sharing the data.

    However, the attachments do not work because they use rename(), and rename() does not like two physical drives (as in /tmp and an NFS mount)

    I applied a mini-patch on DataWriter/Attachment.php

    instead of

                $success = rename($source, $destination);
    I am now using

                $success = copy($source, $destination);
    And attachments are now back in service

    Ironically, I changed this yesterday as I was improving the ability to store attachments on S3. It tries a move/rename and then falls back to a copy+unlink instead.

    Sorry for the huge necro, but what's that about s3 support?
