File Upload with New Data Bridge

My company just upgraded to DataBridge. I can no longer get uploads to work though I had no problem with the older version of DataAssist. I'm using the same directions I used in the older version - Adding Digital File Pro to DataAssist Insert and Update Pages.

Are there newer instructions for the new version? Where can I find them. I have spent hours on this and am getting rather frustrated.

although it is a newer version, the old instructions are still valid, the only difference is the access point.

usually when file upload is not working it is because you are manually changing the type of the form element from text to file. when you do this manually, it will not change the encoding type of the form.


In the tag selector, select the form tag, then in the property inspector, make sure to change the encoding type to multipart/form-data

if you continue to have a problem, send a copy of your page so I can look at the code.

Here is the file

I am enough of a newbie with DataBridge that I'd like you to look at this, please. I have uploaded as a .txt file as .php is not allowed. Also, I do see that the form does already say multipart/form-data.

Thanks

looks like it is set up correctly.

to troubleshoot the issue, we will need to make some code checnges to get som information.

1) Add the following code at line 1 to turn on error reporting:

php:
<?php

error_reporting
(E_ALL);
ini_set('display_errors','on');
?>




2) change the following line:

php:
$WA_redirectURL = "menus_update.php?MID=[Insert_ID]";



to

php:
$WA_redirectURL = "";



this will prevent the redirect

3) On the bindings panel, expand the uploaded files, global status binding group, and add the debug info binding to your page

4) add this code just before the </body tag:

php:
<?php

echo("POST:"); 
echo(
"<pre>
var_dump(
$_POST);
echo("
</pre>");
echo("
Files:"); 
echo("
<pre>
var_dump($_FILES);
echo(
"</pre>");
?>



and post back the results after trying an upload.

In future, compress the php file to a zip archive to send php files.

Syntax Problem

When I put in the code:

<?php
echo("POST:");
echo("<pre>
var_dump($_POST);
echo("</pre>");
echo("Files:");
echo("<pre>
var_dump($_FILES);
echo("</pre>");
?>

it gives me a syntax error.

this line:
echo("<pre>

should be:
echo("<pre>");
