Where are image and video files are stored in BE 2.5?

Jan 11, 2012 at 12:21 AM

Trying to upload a video clip, but the page times out. Its ok for smaller files so I would like to upload via ftp and reference the fine instead. Problem is I cannot seem to find where the image or video files are stored. Any tips please?

have you tried increasing timeout via web.config...


      <httpRuntime executionTimeout="3600"/>


*digits in seconds


As far as file storage is concerned blogengine stores image files in App_Data/files .The display of file is done via axd at run time..

Hi, thanks for your advise jha_jee

I will avoid changing the time and uploading video for now.  I have already uploaded the video file is located withing img folder of the theme I am using. I have also uploaded a smaller clip of a cat which plays fine, but I cannot located it or see it in the App_Data/files either. If I could find that then perhaps I could move the original video clip I wanted to the same location and reference the html in a similar way?

Not sure how files are displayed via axd, is there away I can grab a look to see how this might work? Failing that I will just have to change the web.config and hopefully that will work.

Was already set to 3650 seconds, but for some reason it timeouts roughly after about 600 seconds

<httpRuntime enableVersionHeader="false" useFullyQualifiedRedirectUrl="true" maxRequestLength="16384" executionTimeout="3600" requestLengthDiskThreshold="16384" requestValidationMode="2.0" />
