1) With the new HMTL5 File Upload and the the free DMXZone Server Connect, can I do multiple file uploads or do I need additional items for multi-file uploads?

2) Is there a video showing how to do multiple-file uploads?

Hi Peter,
The HTML5 File Upload and DMXzone Server Connect are the only extensions needed for multi upload.
Here is a video tutorial showing how to upload multiple files and store their names into a database:

Actually - all of the available videos are listed on the product page.

Thanks Teodor:

Yes, I did see the mentioned video to upload multiple files and store their names into a database. However, I noticed that the video for multi-file uploads use the additional extensions required for a database insertion.

My primary concern is to just be able to upload multiple files to a specific folder (without the complications of the database additions and the additional extension required) similarly to the flash-based Advanced ASP Upload, but using just the new HTML5 Upload and server connect (i.e. no database insertions, etc).

So just to be sure, using only the HTML5 Upload and server connect then I should be able to do multi-file uploads to a folder (without database inserts) ?

Yes, you can do this - you could just skip the part with the DB insert

You can't skip that part because the repeat requires a step. Do you put the file action inside the repeat step?

I actually have been unsuccessful using this control; the video does not help;if there's more correct info on how to use it would love to know.

For uploading multiple files, just add a multi file field on the page and in server connect add a file upload step only..
And yes, you can skip that part - if you don't want to insert filenames into a database, then you don't need the repeat and insert inside it.

Teodor - I don't understand your answer. It directly contradicts the tutorial for uploading multiple files. You have to name your file field a certain way (with the brackets []) and you need the repeat to upload extra files. Otherwise, it will either only upload the first file or nothing.

Please explain.

Hi Steve,
I am not sure which part of my explanation is unclear, but as i explained 2 years ago in my previous posts - you do NOT need repeat step for multiple file uploads.
The repeat step is ONLY required if you need to insert each of the uploaded file names into a database!

If you just want to upload multiple files to a folder on your server - start with the video tutorial, do what is explained on the page and then when the serverside part starts just ignore all the steps added to the server action after the file upload step setup!
Simple as that.
