Digital file upload not working (Folder can be created but no upload)

I followed the file manipulation (Upload) instructions at WebAssist to set up my image file upload. The folder was created by no image was uploaded.

I saw this forum at http://www.webassist.com/forums/posts.php?id=26520 from where I obtained the troubleshooting php codes and pasted in my page. I got the debug message below. What is the solution to this problem?

POST:

array(1) {
["submit"]=>
string(6) "Submit"
}

FILES:

array(1) {
["upload"]=>
array(5) {
["name"]=>
string(21) "19FebMarinaNight5.jpg"
["type"]=>
string(10) "image/jpeg"
["tmp_name"]=>
string(29) "C:\php\uploadtemp\php7B82.tmp"
["error"]=>
int(0)
["size"]=>
int(784655)
}
}

Status object: WA_UploadResult1
statusCode : 1
errorMessage :
clientFileName : 19FebMarinaNight5.jpg
fileExtension : jpg

how are you determining that the file was not uploaded?

this portion of the debug code:

Status object: WA_UploadResult1
statusCode : 1
errorMessage :
clientFileName : 19FebMarinaNight5.jpg
fileExtension : jpg
serverFileName : 19FebMarinaNight5_2.jpg
serverSimpleFileName : 19FebMarinaNight5_2
serverDirectory : \uploads\
contentType : image/jpeg
fileWasOverwritten :


is saying the file was uploaded:
statusCode : 1

it was uploaded to the uploads folder:
serverDirectory : \uploads\

and is named 19FebMarinaNight5_2.jpg:
serverFileName : 19FebMarinaNight5_2.jpg

There is nothing found in the folder. Thus I conclude that the file upload has failed.

I'll need to troubleshoot directly, see the private message section.

The debugging info is saying that the file is being saved to that location.

This looks to be a server configuration issue, the server is not working with paths correctly and is alo being onconsistant.

I added code to the webassist/file_manipulation/helperphp.php file to see what path the files is being uploaded to

in some instances it reports uploading to C:\php\uploads\ and in others to C:\uploads\:

move: C:\php\uploadtemp\phpA973.tmp
C:\php\uploads\5bc4373f81830f048f540d8af17eb637_tmp.gif
1
C:\php\uploads\5bc4373f81830f048f540d8af17eb637_tmp.gif

it should be uploading to the site root, but some reason, the server is not returning that path.

even using the getcwd() command, which should return the path for the file being executed is returning the c:\php path. You will need to work with the host to determine why paths are not working correctly.

The best way to fix the issue, I think, is for the engineers at Webassist and Exabyte (the hosting provider) to work directly on the problem. I can't do much about it. Please help. Thanks!

The DFP Script is able to work with Windows servers, and is compatible with PHP 5.2.

The script determines the upload path using the PHP realpath() command.

it first uses:
$scriptName = $_SERVER['SCRIPT_NAME'];

to get the name of the current script

then uses:
$currentFilePath = realpath(basename($scriptName));

to return the path. that code should return the path the your site:
C:\Domains\appmobil\vid.appmobile.mobi\wwwroot\

but instead returns blank. I added the following code to the bottom of the uploader script:

php:
<?php

$scriptName 
$_SERVER['SCRIPT_NAME'];
$currentFilePath realpath(basename($scriptName));
echo(
"SCRIPT_NAME: ".$scriptName."<br />");
echo(
"Path: ".$currentFilePath."<br />");
?>



which shows the problem:
SCRIPT_NAME: /uploader.php
Path:

the realpath function is failing on the server.

the host will need to determine why the realpath function is not able to return the path to the script, that is the heart of the problem.
