Hi, just a quick question. We are facing a quite common issue when u work with multiple people on one project. U have the same codebase (git) u have the same database but assets are not the same and u dont want to put them into version control. The solution would be to store all uploads in one shared place instead of from each client mashine. How can I define the base asset folder ? Is that even possible?

In setups that I've used normally there is a staging server which has the final assets and each dev can rsync the assets down as they need them. You could make a shared folder and have assets/ as a symlink to it.

Thanks Willr, i figured that already out with the sym links, and it works perfectly.
