Method of storage. I find it difficult to choose how to implement the knowledge module. Standard v6.1 the documents are stored in the database but it is also possible in the filestore. Both external filestore and internal filestore are possible. Can somebody give an idea of the pro's and con's?
I know some: If the documents are in the database their backup is included in the backup procedure for the database. It looks also more robust, the connection cannot be broken. However a filestore looks more familiar and the documents can also be accessed without OpenErp. Performance and backuptime are no issues for me because I have only < 5000 documents with total < 50GB. Yes it will grow but will stay far below 1TB. I have tested first with the database. After that I implemented the filestore. The result was I couldn't open the documents that were stored in the database. I received the message "Error reading the file. Unable to read the file. This can be solved via Knowledge / Config / Storage Media. Set back to Type: Database. And all in te database stored documents are back again. Now filestore documents are dissapeared. For a while I tested further with Type: Database. However storing files of more than 200Mb give errors. And somewere I have read 7.0 only supports databasestore, filestore is not functioning anymore. Bug or Feature? Can somebody with more experience give some more insight and advice on this?
Added this reply from Houssine BAKKALI (launchpad community alias about this topic):
it seems that they just changed the way to do it, but the way to configure it still undocumented...
By default attachments are stored in the database. You may choose to store them on the filesystem by setting an ir.config.parameter (Settings->Technical->Parameters-System parameters) named ir_attachment.location
Example if you set ir_attachment.location to file:///filestore
They will be stored in the filesystem at openerp root_path/filestore, the new system uses sha1 to generate the filename so that duplicate files don't take more space.
Only the file:/// scheme is implemented, modules can implement additional scheme like amazons3:///
In database mode the data is stored in ir_attachment.db_datas. Filestore mode file name is stored in ir_attachment.db_datas_fname.
Those names 'are note great' but we kept them for backwards compatibility.
