    Does anyone know how i can upload images to a folder outside the document root ?

    This is a security feature, i would like to aliase the wp-content directory, but upload my docs to a folder outside the root directory. How can i configure wordpress to recognise the directory outside the root. The current options in version 2.1 dont allow this.

    Thanks in advance for you help

    If you're using the latest nightly go to:

    I had the same problem.

    Oh wait, that's still inside the WP dir. I guess my problem isn't fixed.
