I had this problem today as well. I just replaced both the swfupload.js and the swfupload.swf files with the ones from the newest SWFUpload file at . I used the swfupload_f9.swf file from the archive. My uploads are working now. I'm still testing and I'll post again if I have problems but so far so good.

Hope this helps.

insert into .htaccess

<IfModule mod_security.c>
SecFilterEngine Off
SecFilterScanPOST Off

and woila, difference is obviously. But still no-go.

my apache loaded modules:
mod_suphp, mod_security, mod_php5, mod_ssl, mod_perl, mod_frontpage, mod_setenvif, mod_so, mod_headers, mod_expires, mod_auth_anon, mod_auth, mod_access, mod_rewrite, mod_alias, mod_userdir, mod_actions, mod_imap, mod_asis, mod_cgi, mod_dir, mod_autoindex, mod_include, mod_info, mod_status, mod_negotiation, mod_mime, mod_log_referer, mod_log_agent, mod_log_config, mod_env, mod_vhost_alias, http_core

one of those modules is stopping my upload...

I have the exact same problem.
I can't view see any images to insert, other than the default silverstripe logo. It all works properly in IE6 but not in Firefox (probably first and last time I'll ever say that), and appending /?flush=1 does nothing. Site is hosted on site5.

Nice one. This worked for me:

Hello everybody

I've donwloaded the newest version of SWFUpload (Version 2) from and replaced the file
with this one
from the archive

And now, it works on my server.

It would be nice if somebody could try this on his website and post here, if this works for him, too.

PS: Don't forget to clear the cache...

Still experiencing the same problem, even with the latest 2.2.2rc2 release. I personally would like to have an alternative to SWFUpload (just a plain upload form), because it's causing so many people so many problems. Please fix this before 2.2.2 .

Update: SWFUpload v2.1.0 Beta works in the Files & Images section, but doesn't work and redirects to the home page from the sidebar (losing all changes). In the meanwhile I've commented out the relevant 11 lines in HtmlEditorField.php starting with « new LiteralField('AddFolderOrUpload', ».

Hi there, I have been having the same issue (clicking the upload buttons but nothing happens) and so I updated the swfuploader as instructed by earlier posts in this thread and now uploading in the "Files and Images" tab works perfectly in both ff(mac) and ie but clicking on upload in the sidebar links to the main page of the website with a '#' on the end of the address e.g.

This is looking like a bug that needs to be addressed.

SS 2.2.1

Hi folks. Wow... what a lot of work. As requested on this forum string, I uploaded the latest version of swfupload file and it solved my issue with uploading images and now I am able to view them in the side panel - all in Firefox. What a relief.
