I'm having some trouble with SWFUpload/FileDataObjectManager on SS 2.3.6. It worked fine on a local windows server but uploaded to the web host and I'm getting the infamous "There was a problem with the upload. The server did not accept it" error, in my pages and in the Files and Images section. I turned on debugging and put die('look at me!') statements in FileDataObjectManager_Controller::handleswfupload() but the never show up, so I guess it doesn't get that far.

Here's the debug output:

I'm guessing the problem is "SWF DEBUG: Event: uploadError: HTTP ERROR : File ID: SWFUpload_0_0. HTTP Status: 404." but I don't know where it actually is or how to fix it...does anyone have any advice?

Not sure... you don't have mod_security running or anything? You can use Wireshark to packet sniff the response. It's a big PIA, but you'll find out what's going on, at least.
