Changes in Build 25: & related

  • Since my hosting company decided to move my applications on disk w/o telling me; I decided I needed to make it easier on myself to fix when that happens. (previously I was storing absolute physical paths to files in the DB)
  • Put setting IMAGE_UPLOAD_ROOT in config file rather than DB
  • Updated common config to have setting for ROOTHOSTINGFOLDER so that I can change it on one place when the hosting company decides to move my files.
  • Updated so that new files/images are saved with path w/ token '%ROOTHOSTINGFOLDER%' instead of hard root 'C:\somefolder\etc..'
