Files in Subdomain (3 posts)

    The Settings require a path to the downloads folder that is relative to the WordPress install. We would like to store our documents in a subdomain to speed pageload times. Is it possible to do this?

    Would using the WP Original Media Path plugin help - though it is intended for Media library uploads.

    How does storing files in a subdomain speed up pageload times?

    If you want the files to be stored outsite the WordPress directory, you can specify an absolute path.

    What I learned a few years ago is that putting images, for example, in subdomains speeds load performance because is allows parallel (i.e. simultaneous) downloads. I assume that holds true for documents as well. Although documents only need to open when someone clicks on them (unlike images which load automatically when the page loads, so maybe it doesn't matter. Regardless, I'm glad you can use an absolute path to the filebase upload directory.
