Really weird problem with working installation

#1 Postby rodrigomf » May 14, 2008 7:25 pm

Hi everybody,

I'm having a really really weird problem with latest version of XUplod.

I have a working installation that has been Ok for about 2 months or more, however, not much people uploaded files for the past month and a half.

Now that I'm starting to have more users, yesterday the uplaoder stopped working... when a user tried to upload something, the process began and after some percentage (sometimes 100%) it stopped completely.

After trying to see if it was a problem with my application I tried chmodding to 777 the following folders:


And it worked again! I was confused about this but tought the problem was solved. But then in the morning I received complaints about the same situation avoiding correct file uploading...

Then I chmodded /uploads to 775 and it didn't worked, so I chmodded it again to 777 and, to my infinite surprise, it works again!!!

I'm really confused about this, have you ever had any experience with a situation like this??

I hope anyone can give some orientation because now I'm very worried the uploader will be switching between working and not working without my intervention.

Folders should be 777. For debug make xupload iframe visible removing it's "style=..." part. Check out what's inside it when upload fails.
Any relation with upload duration or filesize?
