Oh, I know that I shouldn't be laughing this hard, and worse, laughing this hard at someone's ignorance (which is way different than stupidity: ignorance is that you haven't learned, stupidity is that you can't learn), but, I really can't stop giggling at this one.
We wanted to explore the option of storing all files in the database rather than to the file system. Can anyone help me out with this? Thanks.
The first answer in the forum to the question:
New one on me, I am under the impression that a database can't physically hold files, only data.
And I can't stop laughing.
Those files? HEY! THEY ARE DATA!
That database? HEY! MADE UP OF FILES ON DISK!
Okay, yes, only some, others are ephemeral, existing in memory, but in this case, no, files. On disk.
Can't stop laughing.
