    Unanswered: storing large files in Mysql

    Hello,

    Im a newbie of using databases+Mysql and got a question.
    On my webbpage I want to have stats on how many times my songs has been downloaded and wht they thin about it. My songs is of the format mp3.
    My question is do you recommend me to store the hole file+stats or just my path to my songs+stats.
    If I should store the hole mp3 file in my database how do I do that? (blob? etc)

    Thanks in advance // D_S

    It would be best to store the mp3s on your server, and in your database just store the path to them. Much better for db performance that way.
