Usage of /store and /files

Post by Yawner » Sat Jun 17, 2006 10:48 pm

Howdy guys..

Just noticed while installing I had to setup writable permissions to the /files and /store directories, anyone over here have any clue what they do? I understand that the cache folder has its place, but as for the others I am a little stuck..

If you make backups, for instance, they're stored in /store/ . Attachments are stored in /files/ IIRC.
