There is one advantage. You must either chown the upload directory to the user that your web-server runs as, or chmod it to be world-writable. When creating a web-application that you plan to distribute (like Slashcode), you can't assume that your users will have that privilege. So, storing it in MySQL is a great option. --Dave -- PHP Database Mailing List (http://www.php.net/) To unsubscribe, visit: http://www.php.net/unsub.php
