HTML5-based file upload usually fails, wish SFTP could manage files
|Reported by:||jmichae3||Owned by:||ctsai|
the current provided service of HTML5 upload for managing file uploads for projects is really cool, and I like it, but it has 2 flaws.
1. the upload usually fails, especially the first time when I am uploading files over 20MB in size.
2. I get an error if I try to upload from different directories on my 32-bit windows XP SP3 system. for instance, I try to upload 2 20MB files from "c:\www\jimm\code\windows\kitchentimer.zip" and "c:\www\jimm\code\windows\kitchentimer-1.3-setup.exe" and a readme.txt from "c:\prj\kitchentimer\kitchentimer-1.3\win\readme.txt", this fails, or if I do "c:\prj\kitchentimer\kitchentimer.zip" and "c:\prj\kitchtntimer\kitchentimer-1.3-setup.exe" and "c:\prj\kitchentimer\kitchentimer-1.3\win\readme.txt", this fails. the problem seems to stem from having these files come from different directories. I don't have this problem when I work with my PHP uploads. code samples have been given that work well (although PHP is not known for good file sizes).
3. no SFTP option is available for uploading my downloadable packaged files (zips, tarballs, installers, whatever). and then managing it later with the web interface - the suggestion at would be good that the account holder manage their file properties, such as OS type in the circle-i icon, etc. after they are done uploading their files.) having something stable would be welcome at this point, especially with large file uploads (cd ISO's, DVD ISO's).
sftp only allows me to make changes to the web pages.
this is only half useful.
there is nothing said about the features of the web hosting on the sf.net web hosting. is it PHP+MySQL? PHP only? no PHP? ASP? shtml? any server-sided scripting at all?
