just a question: don't know it exactly: isn't it possible that the sql-user on the server may not have enough rights to read the file?
Yeah, could be. The uploaded file is already somewhere that PHP can write to, though, so it's more than likely available for reading by any other user.
anyway, i would save the file elsewhere on the server, because there are remarkable performance-issues with big data (tried it once with storing images for a photo-gallery). it is much faster saving the file in some directory and just save the path to the file in the db; which on the other hand, can lead to synchronisation-problems. what do you think about this topic?
I agree entirely. I wouldn't put the file in the database either. I gave up on arguing that though since people seem so determined to do it. :)
