I encountered a problem with posting files to some web server. After uploading a file the server claims that no file was uploaded.
It took me about 6 hours to convince myself that there was no error in my code and reviewing the snoopy source, but finally I found the "bug" (I think it's a bug within the web server and not in the snoopy class, but I didn't look up rfc 1867 that deep).
When uploading a file with a browser like firefox oder ie there is a header of the following format:
Content-Type: multipart/form-data; boundary="-----------fsj83fksdfjk1d"
This boundary is generated by the browser and separates the form file(s) and every other form data.
But: Some web server (couldn't figure out what kind of server they are using; apache server work fine without this modification) need a (few) leading hyphen to accept the boundary.
What I did to fix it:
Edit snoopy source, look up in the function _prepare_post_body(), go to the line where
$this->_mime_boundary = "----Snoopy".md5(uniqid(microtime()));
Just add four hyphen "-" and save it.
My snoopy.class.php now contains
and everything works fine for me.
Maybe some of the devs get accross this and fix this in the source.
Sorry, the original code contains
$this->_mime_boundary = "Snoopy".md5(uniqid(microtime()));
and i changed this to
