Hey @shawntaylor and @philipbaileynar, please provide valid information on how to solve this thread!


I think you need an external FTP server ( “s3 bucket” or “gs bucket” etc. ) because the 2gb of SSD provided by an $8/month glitch pro sub with ( non-sudo?) access to terminal makes hosting a photo database difficult, however, you can npm or yarn i stuff, so maybe you can find a js based one?

I only started using glitch 5 seconds ago so maybe someone else has a more informative answer.

You could try services like Netlify or Zeit now. I think one of them has 100gb bandwith limit but photos on average are like 5mb each.

Netlify’s free plan has 100gb of bandwidth which should be able to hold photos. I thought photos were 2mb at most. It really depends of the quality of the photos you are storing.
