I'm at a loss to figure out what's wrong with my site that is stopping it from allowing any files to be uploaded. My local version works fine. The hosted version (on a shared, cheap server so not much scope for changing php settings and things) however doesn't want to play.

I can get to the Assets area in admin, click on add files, select a local file and it queues OK, but press upload and I get the two dialog boxes a few others have been having on here of:
"An error occurred in the upload. Try again later." and then "There was a problem with the upload. The server did not accept it."

I am running SS 2.4.1, DOM r414 and swfupload r401.

I can use the same dialog to copy a file from another folder, just no uploading and only on the live site locally it's fine.

I've tried going through the troubleshooting steps here:

but I never see the alert - my code in FileDataObjectManager.php looks like:

class FileDataObjectManager_Controller extends Controller
	public function handleswfupload()

die('please say hello');


So I suppose I would like some help trying to figure out why
a) my debugging isn't working (if I can fix that I can get more info!); and
b) the bigger question of why my upload isn't working online.

For reference, after trying to upload a file, This is what the debugger spits out:

Just a thought, but the part I bolded above - that's not a path in my installation - is that where it's going wrong, or is that a path that's generated during the upload process?

also following some of these other posts about the same issue, I can tell you that my htaccess is pretty much empty. It just has:

# Use PHP5 as default
AddHandler application/x-httpd-php5 .php
