As nobody seems to answer your question here, i will give you a pointer to an article i found i 30 seconds using google, i just searched for "insert blob mysql php" an i found this article in oReilly, and it seems that the article is based on a thread in the php mailing list.
http://www.onlamp.com/pub/a/php/2000/09/15/php_mysql.html Be carefull with this because it can cause many troubles. If you got a message saying "mysql server gone away" or something like that is because your file if a little big, change the my.ini file and add: set-variable = max_allowed_packet=10M # or whatever you like i think that the default is 1 MB, You should consider changing the max upload size in your php.ini before asking questions about that and saying that it doesn't work :) if you really have to do this way do it if not consider doing this in another way. Any way of solving a problem is right if it is used in the right situation. ----- Original Message ----- From: "Daniel Crespo" <[EMAIL PROTECTED]> To: <[EMAIL PROTECTED]> Sent: Tuesday, March 23, 2004 4:24 AM Subject: Re: [PHP-DB] Store a File (any type) in MySQL > Ok, I'll consider it...
