  • If you can use subdomain or domain on same server then it's easy. Just change upload location in WordPress admin and set URLs accordingly. I will post more detailed answer for this.

I was writing a guide but then I found a tutorial for this. Follow this tutorial to setup subdomain for uploaded files.


  • tnx :) after doing this i must copy current image to new location on file server or this not any effect on old post?

    Yes, it will not move older files automatically. You will have to move those first. All new files will be automatically uploaded to new location.
