CGItempfiles being deleted automatically

#1 Postby rodrigomf » Nov 15, 2011 6:59 pm

Hi, I've had XUploader running for years now without a single problem and yesterday my users started reporting me that they couldn't upload files to the system anymore.

After much debugging I've come to think the problem is something changed in Linux, Apache or Perl (maybe automatic Cpanel update) that makes the CGITempfiles to be deleted immediately after they finish uploading and I've noted in upload.cgi that the script does rely on them (as it doesn't create a file handler to write the file to the server, instead it copies the generated CGITempfile to the final location).

I've tried many things but I cannot figure out what can I do to stop CGITempfiles to delete automatically the instant they finish uploading, do you have any suggestions?

As I already mentioned, it is strange cause the uplader has been working without changes the last 3-4 years.

Thank you in advance for any suggestions.

not sure what is the problem. But CGITempfiles should be deleted automatically. That's correct script behavior.

Return to “XUpload”
