Hi All,

I'm new to Silverstripe, working mainly Flash AS3 programming and have a little PHP experience. At the moment i try to make my way with frontend completly in Flash, the backend in Silverstripe. I want to make a fileupload for users and worked out the tutorials - now I'm at the point to replace the Blackberry HTML-Frontend with Flashfrontend. The problem now is, that i can't use move_uploaded_file in mysite/code. I tried my Flashscript with a simple moveto-php file that i located in the toplevel of my installation. That works fine. When I call my Class and function like:

I get my information in

$_FILES["Filedata"]["tmp_name"] and

from the temporary file uploaded via Flash Filereference. But move_uploade_file does not work. I assume that this has to do with right-settings, i also have read about problems with open_basedir, but that does not bring light to me.
I created a

_ss_enviroment.php define('TEMP_FOLDER', dirname(getcwd())."/tmp");

and a tmp-Folder - because I read a thread about some simular problems where this helped.

Can anyone help?

Im using: local insatllation on a Mac with Mamp, Silverstripe 2.4.3
Is there a special place for Flash/AS3 Posts?

Lot's of greetings and thanks in advance for your help and all the great work on silverstripe.

The fix is: I've used move_uploaded_file wrong...
When I check the folder the php-classes are located using "echo getcwd();" I get the "sapphire" - folder. I used move_uploaded_file ( string $filename , "mysite/code" ) instead of move_uploaded_file ( string $filename , "sapphire" ). I think this is very basic error... but I'm still at the beginning:-)

Now the working code moving the tmp-File to the asset folder in my class looks like this:

if (isset($tmpFile) && is_uploaded_file($tmpFile["tmp_name"])) {
$file = new PDF_File();
$upload = new Upload();
$dir = "../assets/pdfUpload";
$upload->loadIntoFile($tmpFile, $file, $dir);
