Kindly I need to change uploads folder to outside folder in the same server not in the same WordPress directory.

My WordPress directory: /var/www/domain/

Outside Directory: /mnt/disks/main

I have tried many options:  in wp-config and wordpress plugin but they all support folder in main wordpress directory. Not outside folder.

Appreciate your support.
