Subject: MySql binary to File Server Conversion


Hello Everyone,

               We have an instance of Sakai 2.5.3 on Centos(5.4) and
MySql version 5.0.45 on another Centos(5.4). The database is getting
larger( 1.5 GB) so for  and I found out that it would be better to store
content into the file server rather than blobs in the database.  There
is plenty(400 GB)  of space on file server.  I followed the directions
on the following page.



these are the steps I took.


bodyPath at org.sakaiproject.content.api.ContentHostingService =


bodyVolumes at org.sakaiproject.content.api.ContentHostingService = /files


convertToFile at org.sakaiproject.content.api.ContentHostingService = true


The webapp works fine. When you go to the resources of anyone of the
many course sites the file names show up but your get error 404 when you
click on it. I checked the file folder and it was only 128K. Which I was
expecting  to be atleast 300MB or more. I am attaching some file server
screen shots may be help to see what is wrong. 


I greatly appreciate your help with this matter.
