Use external storage (another server or web folder like google drive) to store all attachments

ramf shared this idea 3 years ago
Under Consideration

Hi,

we need a way to use external storage (another server or web folder like google drive) to store all attachments from WHMCS on the fly.

We want to save space on our server and use some external storage to store all on our files in the system (from the tickets system, from the customer profile, from the project management addon etc.).

We want it to be as part of the system - not some backup or manual removing of the files - just to store them on another location.

Something we can change in the setup menu - and to have the ability to connect such a place to external web servers - like google drive, Microsoft onedrive etc.

Again - this is something that should be integrated in to the system so any attachment or file will be stored in this location by default and not in the local WHMCS server.

If it can be done while Sub-dividing the attachment storage folder (as mentioned here) it wold be grate.

Thanks!

Ram

just a quick thought without having tested this...

add external storage by mounting as new drive (there are plenty solutions for that, at least I know FTP mapper and NFS is pretty easy), then symlink the attachment folder to the new drive....

Wouldn´t that be a quick solution?
