File UPLOAD and put it on a DB BLOB

@contact = Contact.new
    @contact.file_file_name=params[:contact][:file].original_filename
    @contact.file_content_type=params[:contact][:file].content_type.chomp
    @contact.file=params[:contact][:file].read
    @contact.save

the first two elements work,

@contact.file=params[:contact][:file].read results empty, can you say
me where I am wrong.

Hi Sergio,

It looks like you're using Paperclip, based on the "file_name_name"
and "file_content_type" etc., attributes? Is this right? I'm not
sure... if you're not, you should try Paperclip.

I wrote an extension to Paperclip to handle saving to a DB BLOB; see

Here's a tutorial/example on how to save a file as a BLOB:
