Well, I am just curious about the directory where my attachments are saved. Is it uploads/attachments? Can I get access to my attachments anywhere else rather than the thread? Maybe FTP?

Finally, can a user do anything to directly reach an attachment they're not authorized to view by trying to somehow gain access to the directory where attachments are saved?

Thanks!

I think you can get to them actually... just go to ./uploads/attachments and you should have a list of them.

And what is a user tries that from his/her browser.

There is no directory called uploads/attachments anyway.

I don't think so coz MyBB does not creates any folder named attachments.
It do creates a folder but i dnt know how the naming algorithm works for this.

I just saw that Toungue
Just go to uploads, and then /the date the files were uploaded.
For example, the 20th of August 2008 is 200808... then you can see a list of attachments uploaded on that day.

yes exactly what i was saying.....
it creates a folder having name like "200809"

an what i can under stand from the name is it creates a folder year and month wise....

as if you see the name of folder i mentioned above "200809"
2008=year
09=month

i dnt know exactly but this could be like this Smile

well i think
2008 is for year and
08 is for month

coz i just attach a file and it created a folder and named it "200809"
and today is not the 20th of sep 2008 Smile
