The page "Return a document's attachment from inside a vhost and/or redirect" 
has been deleted by JoanTouzet:

- = How to Return a document's attachment from inside a vhost and/or redirect =
- When you're inside of a vhost with rewrites, people can't see the database 
documents, and also can't see their attachents.
- This was really annoying for me as all my product documents have images.
- I first tried adding the ?with_attachments (or whatever it is) in a show 
function, but I thought, whoa! I'm gonna load 5 images into memory (in base64 
encoding no less) to just return one .. that's a bit sucky.
- So anyway, the docs say that rewrites are relative to 
/dbname/_design/designname .. I expected ../ in a rewrite to return the '/db/' 
root, but it actually needs '../../':
- {{{
-   {
-     "from":   "/products/dvrs/:doc/:attachment",
-     "to":     "../../:doc/:attachment",
-     "method": "GET" 
-   }
- }}}
- I'm not sure if there are any security issues with serving attachments like 
this. Technically someone might be able to put anything in :doc and anything in 
:attachment and they'd be getting it basically from the database root. So I'm 
going to be putting in another rewrite rule/filter on my nginx to stop them 
putting '_' in the names.
- It'd be neat to have a rewrite customisable rewrite function or filter option.
