    Default upload file

    I am making a desktop application connected to an active link mysql-table on a VPS.
    It is a client registration program, used in several offices. Is it somehow possible to upload a file (e.g. copy of Id-card) to the server with Alpha5 and creating a link to it in the database, so the ID-card or any other document is visible or can be opened in or with the application?
    I am not using webserver. I used to do this quite easily with PHP and MySql, but have no idea if this is possible with Alpha5.

    Yes it can and has been done by a number of people. It's a different process than with a web page, but it's easily done. In fact I think some people have discussed this and shared code previously on one of the A5 forums....
