    Unanswered: Save Physical File using MySQL


    I am using MySQL for employee WinForm application. Some tables have images and Ia m currently saving it as blob which is killing the size of the database.

    I want now to move it to a varchar field contains the file name or ID and save the physical file on the server instead of blob.

    I want to know what's the best practice in this? Do I need to include FTP server and client in my application?

    Is it possible to send the file with the database SqlConnection but receive it there in the server as physical file?

    Please assist..

    Hi jrahma,

    You can save the large files into server, fetch the file based on the key or name from mysql.
    Which is faster than storing the entry file into blob.
