Configure Trackers

Trackers can have attached files. In this panel you can set up where to store attached files (if a tracker allows it). You can store attachments in the database or a directory. The directory path can be absolute (example: /foo/bar/uploads/) or relative to the Tiki directory (example: files/). The trailing slash is mandatory.

Here you can:

  • Set the file storage location to either the Tiki database or a directory on your web server's hard disk.


Use database to store files

Use a directory to store files


Tracker Attachment Storage: Trackers can be set up to allow file attachments, which will be stored in the either the Tiki database or in a directory on your webserver's hard disk. Storing files inside your database is OK for small files or a low volume of files, but a folder is recommended for a high volume site or when your files are relatively large.

Note the mandatory trailing forward slash on the path, shown here in red. The path you specify can be absolute:

/home/cogley/www/uploads/tikiimg/rm/


... or relative to your Tiki's install directory:

trackeruploads/


Path characteristic checklist:

  • Has a trailing slash.
  • For best security, is specified from the root, and is in a separate folder from Tiki.
  • Has its permissions set (e.g. via the chmod command from the command line or in your FTP client software) to allow uploads by the webserver user.
  • Has enough space to allow storage of your expected file volume.

If you take a look at your folder after uploading some images, you can see that Tiki randomizes the filenames, as shown in this graphic:

Troubleshooting Tip: If you are having trouble with file uploads, you can edit settings in your php.ini, or, place an .htaccess file in the root of your tiki installation.

# Partial .htaccess file sample. 
#
# Override PHP.ini variables, which can be viewed using phpinfo:

<IfModule mod_php4.c>
# If you are using Apache 2, you have to use <IfModule sapi_apache2.c>
# instead of <IfModule mod_php4.c>.

php_value max_execution_time	300
php_value upload_max_filesize	"10M"
php_value memory_limit 		"32M" 
php_value session.cache_expire    20000
php_value session.gc_maxlifetime  20000
php_value session.cookie_lifetime 20000   
</IfModule>

# Zero means unlimted request body size:
LimitRequestBody 0
