Hey the site I started is getting some attention and I am being blasted with music from local artist. I am not sure how long I can keep this up before I have to get a new more expensive server. Until I can afford this purchase is there a way to set up the resource manager so that in the future the uploads go to an external hard drive? I was unsuccessful and finding the uploads in a folder so I am assuming they are stored in the Data Base.
All files are stored in the internal data path. This can be changed via config.php (http://xenforo.com/help/config-php-options/). However, note that changing this is fairly advanced. You would need manually move the existing data before changing the path and ensure that permissions are maintained.
