Changing Pictures in Database to File System after many upgrades .. 2.8 to 3.9

Posted: August 10, 2018 at 12:30 PM Quote #210397
I have been upgrading since about version 2.8 to now 3.9.
I am having problems with my sql allotment with my hosting provider, but have much space of disk space left.
I about 5 GB of disk space I could use and NO sql space. My sql allotment is only 1 GB and images are using 928mbs of that.

1: Is it a problem to change the images to file system with a site that has been upgraded so many times?
2: Will changing the settings from DB to File System move the pics or just change where the future pics are stored?

Should I anticipate any problems? Anybody have any advice?

Thanks to those that answer! :)

I think it won't be any issue if all pictures are loading fine in your current 3.90. You can change the mode.

Pictures will be automatically moved to the file system when you change the "Pictures to be stored on" setting.

for more information after changing this setting .
