renames JPG to jpg

renames JPG to jpg

Hi

I hope the answer to this is simple! Using DFP, when a user uploads an image such as 1234.JPG the image is renamed to 1234.jpg. This doesn't matter on my Windows testing machine, which isn't case sensitive - so the image dislays; but on the live Linux site, the 'image not found' error is dsplayed. If I change filename in the database to lowercase jpg, the images are displayed. Obviously, I cn't continue to do this after testing.

Is there a simple setting I need to make to stop it changing capitalisation?

Thanks
Chris

There isn't a simple setting that you could set that would prevent the capitalization. So is the file that is uploaded to the directory also having the capitalization changed or is it staying as it was before?

Hi Jimmy

Thanks for replying. The image itself is renamed, but the original name is stored in the database.

(The image, and thumbnail, are uploaded properly, but as the database specifies 123.JPG and the image has been renamed to 123.jpg, the 'image not found' red square is displayed).

Thanks

What settings did you specify on your upload behavior? I'd like to reproduce this issue on my end, so it will be easier to make a fix.

Hi Jimmy

Sorry for the delay in replying - been too busy doing other aspects of the site!

DFP is set:

the 'upload web images only' is ticked
format: keep existing format
Action: rename new file (increment)

HTH

Cheers

To store the name of the file in the database, are you using the clientFileName binding or the serverFileName binding? The serverFileName binding has the renamed file stored in it and the clientGileName has the completely capitalized extension stored in it.

Hi Jimmy

Where would I find this out - i've had a look at the code on the page, but can't see it.

You should be able to just do a search on the page that you have the insert into the database applied. You can search for clientFileName and change it to serverFileName (make sure you make a backup of the page before making any modifications just in case.

One test you can do is to go to the bindings panel and find the two different bindings and drag them to somewhere on the page. This will display the values of the bindings and you can see the difference there.

HI Jimmy

Nope - nothing matches that code (I've also looked in the WA_DigitalFilePro folder.

I have attached a copy of the page, if that helps.

Cheers

I am having the exact same problem. In my case, it is on an UPDATE page so the server file name is no good for updating the recordset because the only way I can reliably make an update page work with DFP is to have the user copy the filename from the Select Box to the field which actually updates the db. They copy and paste a filename with JPG but DFP uploads a file with jpg.

Why is DFP changing this when most webservers are going to recognize image.jpg and image.JPG as two separate files?
