How are attachments handled in RT?

I just uploaded a ticket with an attachments.
If I look at the path from RT (when I look at the link), I cannot find
the file on the RT server.

If I do a search on the RT server for that file I cannot find it either?

How are attachments handled in RT?

Thanks,
Phil

It is in the database (SELECT * FROM Attachments WHERE filename LIKE
’%.pdf’ for instance…)

I mean where are the actual files saved to?From: Stephane Bortzmeyer [mailto:bortzmeyer@nic.fr]

What Stephanie was saying is that they aren’t stored on the disk,
but are instead stored inside of the database.
So, the only way to get them is by using a database query like the
one she provided.
Depending on what database you use, you could do a dump/backup of
the database to extract all the attachments if you wanted to.On Thu, 14 Apr 2005, Labonte, Phil wrote:
