Sorry... I can't deal with all the SPAM so until I can find a better solution for the forums, I'm locking them down. For now please use awesome services like for community support. Thanks.
This forum is a community forum meant for users of the plugin to collaborate and help solve issues with implementation, etc. Unfortunately, as the creator of the plugin, I do not have much time to attend to every request here as this is only a side project and I must work a full-time job to provide for my family. This is how I keep the Flash version free and the HTML5 version low cost.
making uploadify work under web2py
  • Hi,

    I am trying to use uploadify to upload files to my web2py application. The files content is stored in a database, not in the file system. I was able to use a similar product, swfupload, but I am attracted by uploadify configurability and elegance. I am working in a Ubuntu 9.4 virtual machine (VirtualBox). The server, while I develop, is web2py's local server. FireFox 3.5 is the browser I use.

    I am using the latest uploadify (2.10).

    The main problem is that I can't have my files get uploaded. A smaller issue is that the fileExt option is ignored.

    When I enable the checkScript option, my server side handler is reached and using my debugger I can see the expected list of key-file pairs. However, nothing happens after that. If I do not enable checkScript and set auto to true, I receive an HTTP 400 exception. the 'script' handler is never reached. Whatever I do, I do not have the "Upload | Clear Queue" line beneath the file list. Removing one file from the list works OK.

    My html file is a web2py template, so I attach below the source of the page (^U).

  • Just something I found about the error: the server complains that the line "User-Agent: Shockwave Flash" does not end with CRLF.
  • Hello,

    Was your problem solved? I have the same problem here? what should I do to solve it?

    Thank you,
