Hello all,
I'd just like to ask, how would i be able to transorm the absolute gobbledegook that i'm presented with when an uploaded file is shown in the browser.

The file type is medium blob.

why save in Binary. Its better to store the file and then just hold the path in the db. If your db goes down then restoring and rescuing will be a problem as you not only loose your data but your files as well.
