Preventing Drupal Headaches: Establishing Flexible File Paths From The Start [January 15, 2014]

Want to learn more about Acquia’s products, services, and happenings in the Drupal Community? Visit our site: http://bit.ly/yLaHO5.

In this online demo, we’re going to dig into configuring the paths for your file uploads to make sure your site is easy to maintain. We’ll learn how site directories reach the outer limits of what Apache can handle, and how this creates a maintenance headache. We’ll look at how to create easier to maintain and future friendly file upload paths.

You will learn:
• How file path patterns affect maintenance and migrations in the future.
• How to add a file upload field in Drupal, and configure it.
• Choosing a future friendly path pattern for your site.
• Multi-file uploads in Drupal.
