Hello everyone,

How do we configure in odoo 9 for attachment store location?

Default it stores in database, how one can configure to make store in different place instead storing database?

Is it configurable? or need to override the base method to change the store location?

Thanks & Regards,

Hi everyone,

Found solution for it.

Here it is,

1. Automated
   By adding one new parameter in service configuration file e.g. openerp-server.conf
   data_dir = <File store path>
2. Manual
   Add parameter in command line when starting server.
--data_dir= <File Store Path>
