View Full Version : Do databases save space?
If I save things like flv files and jpg files in a database, will this save space on my server?
No. It'll also increase access times.
So there's no advantage to using a database rather than storing things as files on a server?
They're still stored as files on the server if you enter them into your database. The usual approach is to save them onto your filesystem normally, then store a path in the database.
