File Upload not working for my website...

File Upload not working for my website...

Hi Jason et. al... I've got a File Upload page on our website that will enable job applicants to upload a PDF application. I've worked through all of the errors and don't get any, and I've changed the form to multipart for the file field element, but when I go through the steps to upload a file, nothing happens. no errors, no email notification and no file uploaded to the server. What am I doing wrong this time? I'll attach the URL privately.

ok, to troubleshoot, make the following changes to your page:

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

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



2) add the file upload debug info to the body of the page. go to the bindings panel, and expand the WA Uploaded Files Global Status group and add the Debug info binding to the page

3) write the session and File contents to the page.

add the following code just before the closing </body> tag:

<pre><?php var_dump($_FILES); ?></pre>
<pre><?php var_dump($_SESSION); ?></pre>

Hi Jason:

I followed your instructions - question I was able to write the Session content but I'm not sure what bindings comprise the file contents, so I added the Upload Files (fileUpload) bindings to the page. When I viewed the file I saw the bindings and some Undefined Index errors (see Private Message). I then had to detach the template to add the <pre>....</pre> lines before the </body> tag. After uploading the page, when I view it, I get a blank page. Where did I go wrong? I've attached the updated page.

the only binding that was needed was the debug info binding:
<?php echo WA_DFP_AllUploadsDebug(); ?>

the other bindings are not needed

you don't need to detach the page from the template. the other code does not need to be right at the </body> tag, just as close as is possible.

Thanks Jason!

I've uploaded the page without all those unneeded bindings. You can check it out online. If you want, I've also attached the updated page.

Thanks Jason!

That's the address from my testing server. I thought I had updated all instances of the
$WA_MailObject = WAUE_Definition(.... but apparently had not.
I made the changes and tested, but now I get the code pasted in the private message area. Looks like it still things the authentication is on.

the cause is in the error:

SMTP: SMTP server does not support authentication

you are trying to pass authentication to a server that does not support it
