Malformed multipart POST

#1 Postby aperic » Mar 13, 2007 1:55 am

My upload would start and then after a few seconds I would get the "Upload Failed!" message. I made the hidden iframe visible on upload_form.html and it revealed this error message "Malformed multipart POST". What could be wrong?

*Running XUpload Free 2.6 on Win XP, Firefox 2 or IE7, Apache Tomcat 5.5.17, ActivePerl

Interesting. Check that your HTML form contain

Code: Select all


Code: Select all

Try to install latest perl CGI module.

Also check out this thread:

It's Apache/CGI server problem.

The "enctype" and "method" attributes are in the form tag as you specified. I also installed the latest version of CGI.pm module... however, this doesn't seem to help on the Apache Tomcat server, as described in this thread:

I should also mention that I managed to get XUpload to run on Apache 2.0 server with no problems but I really need to use it on Tomcat. Has anyone been successful in running XUpload on Tomcat server?
