Hi there guys,
I read this PHP article just now and saw something that made me wonder/ponder. He was doing file uploads and inserting the full data of the file directly into the database.
I know this is possible, but I have NEVER tried it. When I started out with PHP, it was said to me that this should preferably not be done since it slows an application down. I've always just worked with saving file into a directory and then using it from there.
What are you opinions about saving file data directly into a database? Meaning the entire content of a file.
