Upload problem - conclusive proof (?) Mon, 14 February 2005 21:19
 MacMonkey Messages: 2Registered: February 2005 phpCollab guest
I've noticed a bug with the linked content 'addfile.php'. And I think this also goes for a couple of other users in this forum.

It looks like between the code in addfile.php and the library.php there is a problem with the slashiness of file paths. Although I doubt this is a problem seen on Linux installations - it causes it to fail badly on Windows.

But considering it is quite difficult to debug the problem... I felt I better mention it on the Forum.

Assistance on this would be useful as it does make the ability to upload content impossible.

I am struggling with FTP. My last attempt generated this error message:

Warning: ftp_mkdir(): C:/Inetpub/wwwroot/sitefolder/phpcollab/files/11: The filename, directory name, or volume label syntax is incorrect. in C:\Inetpub\wwwroot\sitefolder\phpcollab\includes\library.php on line 535

I am on a win2000 server, MYSQL 4.2, PHP4
ANY IDEA???
I read about some problems on syntax and windows servers with / and \ symbols. Might it be related to this?
I am really going crazy with this, I think I am running a fever!!! And I would really love to start using phpcollab!!!

Before I hit my head on the wall and pull off my hair (chest hair of course as there's not much left on the top of my head!!!)....
did anybody ever used the ftp file upload feature on a win server?

And I was looking at the company logo feature (I love the idea)... it is file uploading as well. Maybe it might be conceivable to incorporate it with the file attachment.
I mean, there is a secure location for file uploads and then the company logos are uploaded to an unsecured folder?
It's just a suggestion of course...

directly from the wiki:

Assuming the disk is formated NTFS you need to assign "internet guest account" or "web anonymous user"
recursively to the C:/Inetpub/wwwroot/sitefolder/phpcollab/files directory

I did it, I have an FTP user set up just for phpcollab.
No good.

As FTP was a dead issue, I tried to release the security and give"internet/guest" account full control (Read Write Modif) of the files folder switching to PHP. File upload doesn't seem to work with PHP either.
Do not get me wrong, I tested everything on my local machine (MAC) and everything was fine, but it seems that phpcollab just doesn't get along to well with Win Servers...

I'm using it from a winXP server and the upload works fine.. ehm.. we've to investigate better the problem..

a doubt in include\setting.php what have you write for the $fullPath variable?$fullPath = "c:\path\to\upload"; // right

or

???

no luck.
At this point I will try to make a clean install, I messed too much with the code in this one. One thing, I already tried a clean install a couple of times, but it seems that even if I give read/write permissions to the phpcollab folder, I am not able to write the config settings with the automatic installation folder file. Everytime I have to write the settings file manually. The database on the contrary is compiled just fine. This is not normal...

thank you Fullo (it feels strange to speak to you in English due to the fact that we are both italians!!!), I tried again but all I get when i try to install on my server is:

Warning: fwrite(): supplied argument is not a valid stream resource in C:\Inetpub\wwwroot\xxx\phpcollab\installation\setup.php on line 315

PANIC!
settings.php can't be written!

Warning: fclose(): supplied argument is not a valid stream resource in C:\Inetpub\wwwroot\xxx\phpcollab\installation\setup.php on line 323

I connected with pcanywhere to the server and downloaded phpcollab with the server and extracted it in the correct directory where I want it to be, gave full permissions to internet user but... nada (usually I ftp one copy to the correct directory from my local computer). Windows servers set up is quite messy and on mine I have so much stuff (it runs ASP/PHP different versions and upgrades and de-upgrades) that to troubleshoot something like this might take a lifetime.
I am sure that the problem is on my side. At this point I am in the process of getting a G5 server/MacOSX. I am sure everything will be easier. I only wanted my users to get to use phpcollab right away before the new server gets up online...

Nop it was phpcollab v.2.5 (it already has the modification of the file).
It's really my server I think. See recently I upgraded from PHP4 to PHP5, then I had lots of problems with it, and I had to go to PHP4.3 with a couple of installation attempts. PHP libraries are in strange patched places. I got it working but it's working only on a sort of "it's a miracle it works" basis.
