File Upload / DataAssist

Thread began 11/10/2009 9:39 pm by tn228553 | Last modified 11/17/2009 10:06 pm by Dani Chankhour | 1794 views | 9 replies |

File Upload / DataAssist

I followed the documentation of adding file upload to a Data Assist insert record. I believe I have followed the steps but for some reason the record inserts but it does not record the file name in the data field or upload the file. I tried changing the UploadFolder path to a full path instead of the relative path. Attached is the insert page for review.

Thanks in advance for your help.

Your code looks o.k. I can tell you, though, that if the file is not being uploaded, it will not get the file name into the database so we need to figure out the first part which is why the file is not actually getting uploaded.

My first question whenever I see this problem is have you checked the permissions of the upload folder on the server. If the folder has not had the correct CHMOD command applied, it will not work. Most servers require this to be 0777 but some prefer 0755.

Best regards,

Brian

Have you checked the permissions on your upload folder?

permissions?

I'm guessing that is my problem too so can someone tell me how/where I check my permissions? I'm sure that's a dumb question and I probably have checked them before but I surely can't think of how to do it now.

Thank you,
Laura

You need to check the permission of the folder that you upload your image to. Make sure to set the permission to read/write on that folder. Usually you could tell your hosting provider to change the permission on a folder or if you use an ftp client you can right click the folder and set the permissions there.

permissions?

Just after I wrote, I tried changing the permissions for the folder in Dreamweaver but they didn't seem to stick and it still didn't work. I called GoDaddy and they told me how to change them. But it still didn't work so I went back to my form. I've tried every which way of setting this thing up. Do you have some other documentation you can send me to? It's probably just some little thing I'm missing. Or any common errors you see that might get me straightened out?

Thank you,
Laura

I just read on another post about adding the debug binding so I did that. Here is my page. I think I was further ahead 4 hours ago and now I have this page so messed up. Hopefully you can understand it.
Members_Insert.php

Thank you for you time.

It looks like it is a size issue. Try using a very small images (no more than 5k) and see if you get better results.

No - < 3 KB didn't work either. At one point I had files showing up in the folder on the server and now I don't even have that. I probably have several things goofed up now.
thank you

Hi, I just ran a quick test on the link you have provided:

Members_Insert.php

and i was able to upload successfully. I have attached the image that is used in the upload.

Please try testing with different size image. If we can determine that the issue is the size of the image, we can change a setting in the php.ini file to fix it.
