Can Magento store downloadable products on other server?
I would like to set up my Magento on fast VPS, but I have not enough free space there, so I am thinking about redirecting downloads after purchasing to another server. Is it possible? How would You solve it ?

I know the best solution would be to keep it on one good server, but at the moment I don’t have enough funds.

Thanks for help!

No problem, you can upload a file OR using an external download link.

Hi,

you mention that keeping it all on one server is the best solution, but most large webshops separate files, databases and downloadable content. Makes it more reliable when it comes to higher loads, mostly if you experience a large number of traffic or downloads. So Magento has this included, since it’s build to be big grin
