I know it's not recommended but I want to upload product images to any folder in my web server's root directory instead of magento's media folder.
<upload_dir config="system/filesystem/media" scope_info="1">sales/store/logo</upload_dir>
The base image upload path is set with the config attribute (system/filesystem/media above).
I've updated system config value Base Media URL to
But I don't see my product images being saved in
http::/127.0.0.1/external folder once image is uploaded and product is saved.
Can anyone share where is the actual upload image code present? I've checked in
Mage_Catalog_Model_Product_Attribute_Backend_Media::addImage() by doing Mage::log() but I think this function is not being called?
