Hey I'm building an online file manager web app in ASP.Net, I wondering where the best place is to store the files uploaded by a user?
I have them at the moment stored in a folder outside the inetpub folder, at c:\files\filemanager\users
>\Root is that ok or is it best to store them in the webapp folder under inetpub?
If it is ok to store at the "files\user..." folder then I've another question. Any video files uploaded I convert them to flv & I was gonna store them in "c:\files\ConvertedVids\us
ame>\" but to play back the flv's I need to pass in a web address
Using FLVScrubber 2 http://www.topfstedt.de/weblog/?page_id=208
with the following embedded code:
<embed flashvars="" src="http://www.yoursite.com/assets/scrubber.swf?file=http://www.yoursite.com/videos/yourvideo.flv&bufferTime=3&startAt=0&autoStart=false
style="width: 323px; height: 283px;" />
So do I need to have the converted files stored in a folder under the webapp? Say <webapp>/convertedvids/<us
ername>. How do I control it so only the user logged in gets to view only their vids? Wud I need a web.config for each <username> folder?
As I'm sure u guessed I'm very new to ASP.Net, thanks for any advise.
