One off 10mb file upload

I want to add a one-off largish file, it’s about 10mb. I’ve done some reading and I think that this is the case if someone could give a nod…

  • There’s no FTP way to reference a file with discourse, discourse needs to handle it, note it, and reference it itself.
  • There’s no staff exception to the global file attachment size
  • So one would need to increase attachment size globally, configure that in the web engine, upload the asset, then change the size back down again.

Is there a better process than the above? Not the end of the world if not but thought I’d check

Well the easiest would just be to upload it somewhere else and link it.

Yes. That’s what it would take.
