New to XUpload PLEASE HELP!

#1 Postby JustDucky923 » Jan 22, 2008 7:09 pm

I purchased XUpload Pro last week and had it installed by sibsoft. They did a GREAT job, despite some road blocks from my ISP. Now that it is functioning I have a few more questions and I hope someone here can help me.

1. How can I integrate this into an existing page? Can I simply cut and paste the entire code and place it where I want it into another page on the site?

2. How can I restrict the type of files that can be uploaded? I want only image files.

3. How can I change the page where you are redirected after the file has been uploaded? I just want to make a custom page that says – upload successful or something.

4. On the form there is a space for “description”; however when the file is uploaded I don’t see the “description” anywhere. How can I get that information also?

5. There is a field for “email”, could this be changed to MY email, instead of a field that they fill in. So that every time someone uploads a file I would get an email notification?

I am very new to this and I desperately need help getting this up and working. My operating system is XP home and I am creating the website with ecommercetemplates and FrontPage 2003.

Thank you!!

1. Yes. You can copy entire code to another pages on your site. License limited to one domain only.

2. In XUploadConfig.pm specify allowed extensions:

Code: Select all

ext_allowed     => 'jpg|jpeg|gif|png|bmp',


3. In same config file specify redirect URL:

Code: Select all

url_post        => 'http://server.com/complete.html',


4. No description in emails? No way! Also info about uploaded files sending as POST request to 'url_post' URL. You can see post.cgi script can handle it. You can use any php instead of post.cgi to receive upload info and put it in database etc.

5. Your xupload is on Linux server? Fill all email settings in config in "Email confirmation" section, all upload confirmations sending to 'confirm_email' e-mail.

Well that seemed straightforward but when I made the changes you suggesed (only the ones in XUploadConfig.pm) nothing works. The form worked yesterday, now it shows only "1 file lmaximum" to be uploaded - I didn't change this! And when I browse, and try to upload a file nothing happens - to progress bar and nothing is uploaded. Here is the link to the page: http://evideohomesale.com/xupload/upload_form.html

And here is the XUploadConfig.pm:

package XUploadConfig;

Cause upload.cgi gives error:

Code: Select all

http://evideohomesale.com//cgi-bin/xupload/upload.cgi?mode=settings


chmode changed or windows linebreaks added when saving upload.cgi probably[/code]


Return to “XUpload”
