In line with not having too much experience with WEB development. I have a challenge, which I hope is not for you experts. I need to allow users to access files from a web applications, however those files are not stored within site folder on the web server. Can anyone explain how to reference those attachments.

I used the href tag, but it seems to always try to access files whose path is relative to the root folder of the site.

Thank you.
