hi,

i'm planning to make an upload module to my project but i want to know what is the
most appropriate to save the file that were uploaded.

Is it the best to save it as flat file or just inside a database using BLOB?

and if possible can you explain why did you choose that answer for me?

thank you very much.

it depends. what kind of files? how big are they? what kind of security issues are there? what are the files for? how will you be using them later on?

Please, take the time and do some research and find out how much it would have cost you to get your help from a decent paid-for source. A "roll-of-the-dice" freelancer will charge you $5-$15/hr. A decent entry level freelancer will charge you around $15-30/hr. A professional will charge you anywhere from $50-$100/hr. An agency will charge anywhere from $100-$250/hr. Think about all this when soliciting for help here. Think about how much money you are making from the work you are asking for help on. No, we do not expect you to pay for the help given here, but donating a few bucks is a fraction of the cost of what you would have paid, shows your appreciation, helps motivate people to keep offering help without the pricetag, and helps make this a higher quality free-help community :)

what is the most secure between the two?
