    Where should I be placing uploaded content (photos and videos)

    On my website I have allowed users to upload photo avatars and videos for forum like usage (uploads delete after 1 week if untouched). But where should I place the content to where it won't be accessible to the public to freely download- but still be retrievable by HTML/PHP to grab?


    I have the upload and viewing already working, kinda. I have it placed in the parent folder of the website right now in "../Videos" and "../Photos" (in the same parent folder as I was suggested to safely place .ini files). I don't really know anything about folder permissions, but I had to set "Application Pool Group (IWPG " to read/write so that I could upload video/photos to the page.
