Evidently the General board for Pure PHP Upload is the wrong place to look for help.
So, here's the deal. We have a client who wishes to have a secure upload area for their customers, some of whom use Macs. After much struggling, we have the upload area working just fine for PC users. Mac users, on the other hand, cannot upload. They get a failure that tells them they don't have permissions to upload. How can I fix this?
My Operating System is 10.6.3. Firefox is version 3.6.8 Safari is version 5.0.1
Now regarding “Flash”... this must be a Flash Player plug in for the browser. Flash the actual program from Adobe is only available in the Premium and Master software collection suites. My Shockwave Flash Plug-in is version 10.1.82.76.
The place to see the current upload feature is at: www.wmaweb.com/ftp/ftp_up/index.php You will be required to put in a user name and password. I have temporarily set up a user name of test and a password of test.
George, as can be seen by my message here on the 27th of Aug., we have supplied everything you have asked for and are wondering where the "intense monitoring of this forum is, since we see no response. This is very dissappointing.
another misplace i see on your page is the id of the form. Now it is "form1" and it should be named "UploadQueue". maybe it is better if you just reapply the extension on the page. Remove it as well as the form and apply it again. That should fix it. You can note me when you are ready so I can check out the generated code.
Gene Humbert did as Miroslav Zografski requested: we removed the form, and all the php code associated with it. We then started again with a blank page except for the template and the text on the page. Gene Re-installed the behavior, and allowed the software to create the form, and populate it. He made sure the result was going to the ftpresult folder, and uploaded the file. I tested it, and it worked for a PC. Our client tried uploading using a MAC, and got the same result as before – Permission denied.
That seems to be one common problem with Flash used as upload agent. Flash currently is unable to pass session variables and cookies in browsers except IE. That is why your Windows users - mostly seems to use IE - are able to upload wile those on other browsers - and thus mac users - are unable. Once again I must point out that this is a Flash problem that is out of our competence - we use flash technology on the same basis as you do.
The problem could be solved by placing on the page simple Pure PHP Upload with simple filefields. You can use more than one file field and they can be submitted at once.
I don't use IE. I use Firefox, Opera, and Chrome. I've had no problem uploading. I reiterate: NO PROBLEM. Only ones having problems are Macintosh users.
Secondly, you give no such caveats in your sales pitch for this program. We went to it mainly because of the ability to upload more than one file at a time.
As a follow-up comment from me (Stan), I talked to a college level teacher that specializes in this sort of thing and he said that your program needs to be compiled in the latest version of Flash. Have you done so and released an update fixing this problem? Secondly, why didn't you know this in your prior responses? Thirdly, if I'm reading your message correctly, we didn't need the multi-uploader to begin with, if the Pure PHP Uploader will do more than one file at a time. Am I understanding this correctly? And if that isn't the case, then we will need a refund on the software we purchased. Stan Barker PDS, Inc.
