Changing the path of upload center



  • Hi,
    assume we have a linux server running nginx. We have installed NodeBB under a path like </home/user/Nodebbpath> and it's accessible through a domain like forum.mydomain.com. On the same server we have a download server which has another path and it is accessible through dl.mydomain.com. Now when I upload files in NodeBB they will be placed in NodeBB path, But I want them to be uploaded in my download server path so they will be downloadable through my download server domain(dl.mydomain.com)
    How may I do that ? is there a section on admin panel for setting this ? or a plugin that I should install? If there is no implemented way , can you help me do this anyway?


  • Admin

    Have you tried using the upload_path property in config.json?



  • @julian suppose we change upload_path after that How to tell nodebb that address of the uploaded file start with another domain?
    for example we upload file.rar through nodebb composer ( post editor ), we wan't editor ( composer ) return url of file like dl.mydomain.com/file.rar.
    so I think if I change only upload_path editor will be return forum.mydomain.com/path/to/downloadServer/file.rar.

    @sanatisharif :

    We have installed NodeBB under a path like /home/user/Nodebbpath and it's accessible through a domain like forum.mydomain.com.
    On the same server we have a download server which has another path and it is accessible through dl.mydomain.com.

    @julian If I am wrong, please help me!
