Subject Re: Commons fileUpload: write to disk permission problem
Date Mon, 26 Jun 2006 08:10:12 GMT
Do not write data in the webapplication folder, this folder is supposed 
to be overwritten when webapplication is redeployed and datas will be 
lost. Instead choose a folder in system you dedicate to your 
webapplication datas and store your avatars there.

Or best .... use a database :)
