How to create a media library

Recommended Posts

I want to create a media library in the CMS, similar to how it is in WordPress but custom-coded in PHP on my own site.

Can this be done simply with a database connection or will the images need to be uploaded to a server?

Bit confused as to how it works and which is the best way to go about it.

Thanks for any help.

You can store images in a database but it's not advised.

Best way is store the image file in the file system and store the image location and metadata in the database.
