    I plan to make a site that people save files on and then the files are displayed to the public to download. I am new with this hosting website and have not figured out how and where to save the uploaded files to. Also, should I incorporate a MYSQL database in my website to store the files?

    Thanks, Eric

      It's not a good idea to store files in a database. While it is technically possible if you serialize the data, this is very inefficient.

      It is better to store the files in a folder. The folder should be outside of your root directory. It will need special permissions, depending on if you're using Windows or Linux.
