I'm integrating a custom active x control into a moodle installation. This control will run on client computers. It's purpose is to download and play tutorial files as specified by the user. I'm a bit confused as to the total purpose for /file.php and whether it's appropriate for my needs...
- Should I place the files (there will be 2000 or so) in the moodledata folder (e.g. http://mymoodle.com/file.php/1/content/foobar.xyz . Would this cause problems accessing the resources from different courses?
- would it be better to place them somewhere where they can be linked without going through /file.php (e.g. http://mymoodle.com/content/foobar.xyz)?
- Are there other concerns I should have?
