Move the uploaded file instead of deleting it? (6 posts)

    I'd like to use this plugin to allow a user to upload a file, but after emailing KEEP the upload files on the server (rather than deleting them) by moving it to a non-web accessible location on the server. Is this possible, and if so, how?

    I'm in a similar boat, I'd like to keep the uploaded files (I don't really care about moving them from their temporary directory, but that is fine too) as I'm hoping to use this plugin to gather images from users and then use another process to SFTP into my server, retrieve the files and analyze them.

    @anielsen: It is considered impolite to interrupt another poster's ongoing thread unless you are posting a solution or suggestion. As per the Forum Welcome, please post your own topic.

    I was +1'ing this request hoping that the more eyes that see it the more likely it would be to get a response. Isn't that better than flooding the forums with post after post all asking the same thing?

    @anielsen: These forums have guidelines. Please read them.

    As you will see, one of these guidelines - entitled Where to Post - specifically states:

    Unless you are using the same version of WordPress on the same physical server hosted by the same hosts with the same plugins, theme & configurations as the original poster, do not post in someone else's thread. Start your own topic.

    Please abide by this.

    Sorry, I guess that seems counter intuitive to me, like it is forcing thread duplication.

    In any case, I've started my own thread. Feel free to delete my posts from this thread.
