Storing a global on an external server?

Question asked by nsmith9110@gmail.com on Nov 4, 2014

For a program I am working on, I have downloaded a web editor to communicate html text back into FileMaker. I am going to be using this for email functionality and in order to insert pictures, videos, etc. in to the email, you MUST have a web URL to enter.

 

So, in order to get images to be able to be used in the emails, I have tried to set up a global field that they can use on their local computer where, when they put their media into the field, it will save it to the root folder for the website and generate the URL for them be able to insert into the email.

 

However, the gloabl I have set up SAYS that it successfully transfers the file but I then can't find it anywhere, least of all in the folder that I need it to be in.

 

Can anyone offer advice?

 

If this isn't clear enough, I basically need to know how to save an image OFF OF a local host ONTO my server and have it saved in the root folder for the website.

 

If you need more clarification let me know.

 

Thank you
