It is possible to configure Focal Point to store files (attachments) outside the database (file system)?
- Browse to the path C:\Program Files\Apache Software Foundation\Tomcat 5.5\conf\Catalina\localhost
- Edit fp.xml in Notepad look for the below lines and change it to as shown below:
<Resource name="focalpoint/filestorage" auth="Container"
ry" storageClassName="se.focalpoint.dsp.FileStorageDB" basePath="C:\Program Files\Telelogic\Focal Point 5.3\files" />
ry" storageClassName="se.focalpoint.dsp.FileStorageFS" basePath="<filedir>" />
Replace <filedir> with the directory where you want to store your files. This is the directory that must be backed up separately.
Note: If the application already contains files before changing to storing files on the file system, the existing files must be extracted from the database. Do so by downloading filestofiles.zip from attachments section and follow the instructions in the included Readme file.
