    With BP1.1, avatars are no longer stored in the database; they are rather stored as files on the server in folders based on the slug and ID of the avatar owner.

    Check your /blogs.dir/1/avatars/ directory and you’ll see lots of other folders in there.

    You can imagine this cuts down on the query count pretty substantially.



    Thx jjj, i still know that… What i want to understand is how the system recognize my name and associate the right avatar to it. Where is this information stored ?

    I cannot erase my avatar, even from profile interface nor from the server. And i don’t hade sudo access. I can only try something from in the DB i guess.

    Please continue this discussion on this thread.
