Hi,
When I go to upload images to my Image Gallery module album in the CMS I get the "server did not accept" error.

I called Bluehost, my web host, and they claim that mod_security is not enabled by default for their clients (ie., it's off).

I also added the following to my htaccess file in the root of the domain with no luck:

<IfModule mod_security.c>
SecFilterEngine Off
SecFilterScanPOST Off
</IfModule>

Any ideas?

The other thing that's been coming up lately that you might want to look into is PHP safe mode being enabled. That can't be on, otherwise the PHP copy() function fails.

Try the method in the Troubleshooting section of the SWFUploadField documentation and see which line is causing the error, or if you're more technical, use Wireshark to packet sniff and get the error that the server is reporting.

Hi,
Thanks for your quick response. The safe_mode in my php.ini was off (that's what you are referring to, right?). So that's not the issue.

When I added
SWFUploadField::debug();
to mysite/_config.php file to start the SWFUploadField trouble shooting process as you suggested, I got a fatal error.

Do I also need to add
Director::set_environment_type("dev");
to mysite/_config.php? I'm I editing the wrong _config.php file?

Also does this look right for the starting insertion position of the die('hello') statement in the ImageGalleryManager.php file?

class ImageGalleryManager_Controller extends Controller
{
   public function handleswfupload()
   { die('hello');
if(isset($_FILES['swfupload_file']) && !empty($_FILES['swfupload_file'])) {
         etc....etc.....

Thanks,
Sam

Use:

SWFUploadFieldConfig::debug();

not

SWFUploadField::debug();

Hi,
So the issue was with the htaccess file in the root directory of the SS domain.

The domain is underdevelopment so I password protected it through the cpanel.
Unbeknownst to me, it appended the following to the end of the SS htaccess file:

### SILVERSTRIPE END ###
AuthType Basic
AuthName "HolyBasil.info (underdevelopment)"
AuthUserFile "/home3/islandro/.htpasswds/public_html/holybasil/passwd"
require valid-user

Once I removed it. The SWFUpload in the Image Gallery module worked.

Thanks,
Sam

Yup. That's another common cause. Glad you flushed that out!

I would like to password protect the entire site using htaccess and htpasswd in the root, but as previously mentioned this breaks uploading. Is there a way around this?
