  • Normally, a database is used to store (structured) data, not files. While you could use BLOB field to store files, it would be much slower and put much more stress on the servers (including your resource allocation on those servers). So I would highly recommend against it.

    And because so few people do (and should) use MySQL for storing files, phpMyAdmin doesn't offer file upload functionality.

  • Can you give me one example in code?
