Loading and saving an image to the database
  • Hi there,

    how would I save an image to the database with FuelPHP? I don't want to do the hassle of creating my own storing system on the server, but instead using a blob.
    I know how to do on my own in PHP. But I guess that you folks have implemented a rather easy way to do it.

    $data = addslashes(fread($ih, filesize($iData)));

    If this is about uploading files, have you checked out the Upload class? And the Image class for loading and manipulating image files?
  • Yes... it was late for me and I forgot how to write (and google). Never mind. I'll ask later if I have any more questions.

    But thanks.

Howdy, Stranger!
