I'm so new to this, where do the files get stored?

Erik Thiart () - 9 years ago - Reply 0

You would store them on your server or on S3. What server side technology are you using?

I would actually suggest you use something like http://rubaxa.github.io/jqu... to get that part figured out in most cross-browser way possible. If you want you can also get my book that has a whole chapter devoted to AJAX file uploads: http://maxoffsky.com/frontend/
