check in the manual under the features section, a part called Handling file 

you need to use a multipart/form-data html form, which then posts the 
contents of the file to the server. once it is there, you can parse it into 
a single variable and save that into the db just like you would anything 
else, or you can write it to disk somewhere and save a path for it.

getting it back out - make sure you also save the mime-type of the file, 
then just pass the mimetype as a header, and then spit out the contents of 
the file (if it's saved in the db)
