Sometimes when you have a uploads folder in your app and deploy again the app, the uploaded files just get removed. One solution is just to create a symlink between folders in order to automatically copy from the app’s upload folder to a safe folder.
Don’t worry, it’s easy. Let’s see how.
How to create a symlink between folders
Run the next command in your system:
ln -s /path/of/target/container /path/of/origin/to/copy/from
- The first path is the target container, where to store the files
- The second path is the origin folder, where to copy the files from
