Uploads. No subdirectories for uploaded images



  • When an image is uploaded by a user, it is placed in one folder /public/uploads/files.
    However, a folder can often contain a limited number of files and directories, say 64,000. And searching for a file is slower when there are many files in a directory.

    Usually, uploaded files are placed into subdirectories:
    /a/a1111
    /a/a1112
    ...
    /b/b1111
    ...
    /c/c6565
    ...



  • Though, I checked now.

    I can create 1 million files in a directory on my Ubuntu box with the ext4 file system.

    So, it should work with the current configuration.
