Hi, i'm having problems on a host I don't usually use - with uploadify and swfupload.

if I upload an image or file through the standard silverstripe single file uploader- the file goes up no probs.

if use swfupload - i'm getting errors:

"SWF DEBUG: Event: uploadError: HTTP ERROR : File ID: SWFUpload_0_0. HTTP Status: 404.
SWF DEBUG: Event: uploadComplete : Upload cycle complete.
Error Code: -200, File name: spotTrees.png, File size: 177047, Message: 404"

if I use uploadify, the host server detects me an attack and blocks my ip address!

feedback from the hosting company's error log was this:

/admin/EditForm/field/DownloadFiles/UploadifyForm/field/UploadedFiles/upload
?SecurityID=f6e6f196410921cbc49cdc6c2e9afa31d12da027&ctf[DownloadFiles][star
t]=0&ctf[DownloadFiles][per_page]=10&ctf[DownloadFiles][showall]=0&ctf[Downl
oadFiles][sort]=SortOrder&ctf[DownloadFiles][sort_dir]=&ctf[DownloadFiles]=&ctf[DownloadFiles][filter]=&ctf[DownloadFiles][view]= HTTP/1.1

Mod Security then reports "Access denied with code 403. Error processing
request body: Multipart: final boundary missing [severity "EMERGENCY"]". If
you Google "Uploadify modsecurity" you will see there are others who have
the same issue. Is there a different uploader you can use?

Any suggestions?

cheers

ok, progress: i disabled mod_security using info form this page

http://www.askapache.com/htaccess/modsecurity-htaccess-tricks.html#Disabling_mod_security_conditionally_IP

however, this only works for fixed ips. it would be really cool if some clever person could write a method so that anyone logged in to the admin gets mod_security disabled...
