XF 1.5 Where do uploaded images go?


Active member

For example, when somebody uploads a 4MB image/attachment and it gets resized to 100kb or 200kb etc., what has happened to the original 4mb image, has it been saved on my server as a temp file or is only the smaller resized image saved on the server?

Uploaded files are resized based on the settings in the ACP and stored in the internal_data directory.

Thumbnails are stored in the data directory.
