Message says files uploaded but files not found

#1 Postby aurum14 » Mar 28, 2006 8:13 pm

I have installed all the files for XUpload and set CHMOD on all files and folders to 755 and created the temp & upload folders in cgi-bin and set permissions to 777.

Nothing I have uploaded but have a message saying the transfer is complete have shown up anywhere on my website.

Any clues?

Looks you have mod_security Apache module installed on your host which is buffering uploading files.

I have the same problem...

pop-up said that transfer is completed, but file was not copy in folder.
I don't have any .htaccess file in the folder of upload.cgi, and even if i create one, it doesn't work. i've done all chmod too but it doesn't work...

i'm working with Red Hat 7.2, apache 2.2, perl 5.6, php 4.4.2

my phpinfo is: http://www.andil.fr/phpinfo.php

my upload_form.html is

Code: Select all

<Title>XUpload - upload progress bar</Title>

You have "Internal Server Error" in upload.cgi after upload.
Don't know what's the problem exactly: make sure upload.cgi is chmod 755, there are no windows linebreaks.

Also if this won't help, try to remove "$SIG{HUP} = 'IGNORE';" line.

What Perl version do you have?
