Photo Upload to phpMyAdmin

Photo Upload to phpMyAdmin

Hi:

I just bought the CSS Form Builder for my Dreamweaver CS5. I've created a page where end users will be able to upload their photos to their own profiles so that it can be later displayed for other members to see. I'm using a phpMyAdmin Database and everything is working fine EXCEPT that the photo doesn't upload to the Database.

The type of field I'm using in the Database is a BLOB MIME: image/jpeg (is this the right type?)

I'm using the extension WebAssist > File Manipulation > Upload.

If I upload the photo to a folder, it uploads well, but when uploading it to the database I get a message saying "column 'photo01' cannot be null".

Any ideas on how to solve this? Your input will be highly appreciated.

Thanks.

Photo Upload to PhpMyAdmin

Hi Jason:

Thank you for your reply. I read the PDF document you suggested. Does it mean that my WebAssist CSS Form Builder is not what I need to allow end-users to upload photos to my Php Database? Please be clear in you answer to this SPECIFIC question.

If such were the case, I would need to return the CSS Form Builder and buy the Digital File Pro and the Data Assist mentioned in the PDF in question.

Please note that the reason I bought the CSS Form Builder was only to allow end-users to upload their photos to their (Database) profiles, which, to my understanding, and according to the response I got over the phone from one of your Customer Service Associates, the CSS Form Builder was capable of doing.

Kindly be very clear in your response.

CSS Form Builder includes the File upload Functionality of Digital File Pro.

The File Manipulation -> Upload behavior of CSS Form builder will is the same as the uplad File behavor of the older Digital File pro.

the Upload behavior can upload files to the servers file system, it cannot upload files into the MySQL database.

Instead of storing the actual file in the database, you upload the file to the servers file system and store the file name in the database.

to store the file name in the database, you need to use DataAssist.

Thank you for your reply.

In other words, do you mean that CSS Form Builder doesn't do the job by itself (storing the file name in the Database and the file in the srerver directory)? Do you mean that I have to acquire DataAssist to do that operation?

Please answer CLEARLY AND TO THE POINT.

Thank you for your attention and looking forward to reading your reply.

Yes you need to have Data Assist in order to store the uploaded file name in the data base.

Once again thank you for you reply.

However, in the PDF Document you suggested I read there's no mention whatsoever of CSS Form Builder. There's only mention of Digital File Pro and DataAssist.

I should return the CSS Form Builder and acquire the two others. Can you confirm this? (CAN YOU PLEASE BE SPECIFIC?)

Thank you for your attention.

Looking at WebAssist's product list, it seems that what I need is the Dynamic Suite. It seems to contain both the Digital File Pro and the DataAsssist features needed for my purposes.

Could you please confirm this?

Thank you for your attention.

You already have CSS Form Builder which includes the File manipulation features of digital File pro.

the only thing you are missing is Data Assist.

Using the File Upload functions of CSS Form Builder, you can already upload the file to the server, the only piece you are missing at this point is to store the file name in the database. For this you need Data Assist.

The File Manipulation features of CSS Form builder have replaced Digital File Pro, It is the same functionality, the only difference is the name and menu access point. In the documentation I pointed you to, replace any Referance of Digital File pro with CSS Form Builder File Manipulation.


you do not need the dynamic suite, unless the other extensions offered in dynamic suite interest you.

OK. So CSS Form Builder replaces Digital File Pro, but Digital File Pro is cheaper. So I'll go ahead with returning the CSS FB.

Thanks
