<Path on Server>: Character string (with quotes)
Path of server directory where the file will be copied. This path can correspond to the path returned by fDataDir. This path can also correspond to fCurrentDir although the hosting companies rarely grant the rights to write into this directory.
Linux This parameter is ignored. The file is uploaded in the "/tmp" directory of the Linux server. This directory cannot be modified.
<File Name>: Character string (with quotes)

Remarks

Maximum size of files to upload

By default, the size of the files to upload is not limited in the WEBDEV engine. This size can be limited:
  • by the Web server used. See the documentation about the Web server used for more details.
  • by WEBDEV application server.
The file will not be uploaded if its size exceeds the limit size.
To modify the maximum size of the files to upload in WEBDEV application server, the registry must be modified on the server:
  1. To modify the size of the uploaded files for all the WEBDEV 23 applications, select the following key: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\PC SOFT\WEBDEV\23.0
  2. Add the MAX_UPLOAD string. The value of this string will be the maximum size of files to upload (in KB).
PHP Limits in PHP:
  • The size of the uploaded files is limited by the "upload_max_filesize" directive in the configuration file of PHP (php.ini file).
  • The file upload must be allowed by the PHP server. To do so, the "file_uploads" directive must be set to "on" in the configuration file of PHP (php.ini file).
  • The upload_tmp_dir directive of the configuration file must be specified toward a directory with read/write rights.

Name of the uploaded file

UploadFileName is used to find out the name of an "uploaded" file.
