Universal Email - Attachment Not Attaching on Godaddy but elsewhere works.

Universal Email - Attachment Not Attaching on Godaddy but elsewhere works.

I have universal email set up with a file attachment. This works fine on my other server, but when i moved the simple script over to godaddy, the files are uploading to the folder on the server, but the files are not being attached to the email being sent. I receive the email fine, but with no attachments.

The page is viewable here:

The php Info file here:

And here the same page that works fine on another server.

Plus i have attached the page code as well. The upload folder exists with the correct file permissions, everything is uploading fine. The images just aren't attaching to the email being sent out - only from godaddy. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

to troubleshoot the probelm, i'll need you to make a few changes to the page code:

change line 160:
$GoToPage = "thanks.php";

$GoToPage = "";

so that the redirect dos not happen.

add the following code at line 1 to turn on error reporting and write the contents of the $_FILES array:


if ((

open the bindings panel, and from the WA Uploaded Files Global Status group add the debug info binding to the page.

After making these changes try the email again , and send the results along with a copy of the following file:

in the attachment section, you are using the submitted file option. This wont work if you also have the file upload behavior.

The Submitted file option will only work if you do not include the file upload.

to perform both functions, save the file to the server and attach it to the email, you have to use the Entered Value option for the attachment.

For each file upload behavior, there will be a binding group named WA Uploaded Files (<File Field Name>). each of these contains a binding for server file directory and server file name.

Select entered value option, then click the lightning bolt and expand WA Uploaded Files (<File Field Name>) binding group, select the server file directory binding, and copy the binding code. Then select the server file name binding. place your cursor before the server file name binding and paste the server file directory binding code before it.

repeat this for each file field.

That worked, funny how the original version still works on the other server..... different php versions?
