#5935: Database should not contain absolute pathnames
 Reporter:  Curioso  |       Owner:  anonymous
     Type:  defect   |      Status:  new      
 Priority:  normal   |   Milestone:  2.6      
Component:  General  |     Version:  2.3.2    
 Severity:  major    |    Keywords:           
 The filenames for attachments are stored as absolute pathnames in the
 database. This makes it impossible or at least very hard to move a
 wordpress database and associated files to a different host. In my opinion
 pathnames should be stored e.g. relative to the wordpress directory.
