Session variables disappear in relation to a file upload

Howdy
I've got a rather strange issue occuring.

I used forms based .NET authentication, although I'm also setting some
session variables when people login.

However, I've found when people use one of my webform pages which includes a
button that pops up a window where you can upload files, if you upload files
in this popup window, it seems to somehow clear out all of the session
variables and the users get logged out. However, if people don't upload
files, then their use of the webform page proceeds as required/expected.

I'm planning to phase out the session variables by upgrading my code,
however I can't understand this problem which seems quite strange and I'd
like to know what the problem is.

Any clues would be greatly appreciated.

Cheers
Matt
If it helps, here is code in question:
The main part of the code behind for the upload page:

private void Page_Load(objec t sender, System.EventArg s e)
{
// Put user code to initialize the page here
if (!IsPostBack) {
pnlUpload.Visib le = true;
pnlUploaded.Vis ible = false;
}
if (IsPostBack) {
pnlUpload.Visib le = false;
pnlUploaded.Vis ible = true;
}
strJobRequestID = Request.QuerySt ring["JobRequest ID"];
btnClose2.Attri butes.Add("oncl ick", "return closeupdate();" );
}
public void UploadFile(obje ct Sender,EventArg s E) { //Event handler for
the upload button
lblFileList.Tex t = "";

if (Request.Files. Count > 0) { //if there are files attached

//Get directory path
string strDirPath = Server.MapPath( ".\\" + "/../../detail/files/" +
strJobRequestID + "/");
//Response.Write( strDirPath);

//if Directory path doesn't exist then create it
if (!Directory.Exi sts(strDirPath) ) {
Directory.Creat eDirectory(strD irPath);
}

//Iterate through the Request.Files collection
for(IntLoop=0; IntLoop<Request .Files.Count; IntLoop++) {
if (Request.Files[IntLoop] !=null) { //Checking for valid file
// Since the FileName gives the entire path we use Substring function
to get the filename (including the file extension).
string StrFileName =
Request.Files[IntLoop].FileName.Subst ring(Request.Fi les[IntLoop].FileName.LastI ndexOf("\\")
+ 1);
string StrFileType = Request.Files[IntLoop].ContentType;
int IntFileSize = Request.Files[IntLoop].ContentLength;

//Check for file length > 0 and Upload if it is
if (IntFileSize > 0) {
//Save the file to the web server
string filePath = (strDirPath + "/" + StrFileName);
Request.Files[IntLoop].SaveAs(filePat h);
lblFileList.Tex t += "<li>" + StrFileName + "</li>";
}
}
}

}

Hi Matt,

Looks like your appdomain is recycling.

You may check that using Perfmon and application restrats counter to verify
if your appdomain is recycling.

Also, what is the size of the file which causes the issues? Is it each and
every file which causes the session to recycle??

Thanks Rahul

Hmm, application restarts are 807 and Requests Queued is 54,000!!!!

And the error occurred for 1 file of 1KB too.

Actually seems to be the code below that's causing the problem, which
renames the file upload directory from a temporary name to the ID number of
the job request (because the webform page in question is for logging a job,
and the directory path ID number is not known until the job is logged):

//JOB FILES (if they exist)

//Root directory path for JBS job files
string strDirPath = Server.MapPath( ".\\" + "/../../detail/files/");
//Response.Write( strDirPath+"<br >");

//New Directory path for logged job files
JBSv4.utils.jbs .v4.utils.utils utilsClass1 = new
JBSv4.utils.jbs .v4.utils.utils ();

strLongJobReque stID = utilsClass1.Lon gJobNumber(intJ obRequestID);
string strDirPathJobNo = strDirPath + strLongJobReque stID + "\\";
//Response.Write( strDirPathJobNo +"<br>");

//Directory path used for temporary file storage before JobRequestID
was created
strTempJobReque stID = tbxTempID.Text;
string strDirPathTemp = strDirPath + strTempJobReque stID + "\\";
//Response.Write( strDirPathTemp+ "<br>");

//Rename temporary file storage directory (if it exists) to job number
directory
if (Directory.Exis ts(strDirPathTe mp)) {
Directory.Move( strDirPathTemp, strDirPathJobNo );
}

What do I do?

Thanks again for any more help.

On further investigation, it is this code

if (Directory.Exis ts(strDirPathTe mp)) {
Directory.Move( strDirPathTemp, strDirPathJobNo );
}

causing the problem, and I note that when this code runs (and the user gets
logged out), the counter for application restarts increases by 1.

I'm reading something that makes me think that maybe some virus checking
software is involved in the problem.

Thoughts?

Solved using the code on this page:

Still wondering though what it means that my Requests Queued is 54,000!?

Thanks for any advice

Actually seems to be the code below that's causing the problem, which
renames the file upload directory from a temporary name to the ID number
of the job request (because the webform page in question is for logging a
job, and the directory path ID number is not known until the job is
logged):

//JOB FILES (if they exist)

//Root directory path for JBS job files
string strDirPath = Server.MapPath( ".\\" + "/../../detail/files/");
//Response.Write( strDirPath+"<br >");

//New Directory path for logged job files
JBSv4.utils.jbs .v4.utils.utils utilsClass1 = new
JBSv4.utils.jbs .v4.utils.utils ();

strLongJobReque stID = utilsClass1.Lon gJobNumber(intJ obRequestID);
string strDirPathJobNo = strDirPath + strLongJobReque stID + "\\";
//Response.Write( strDirPathJobNo +"<br>");

//Directory path used for temporary file storage before JobRequestID
was created
strTempJobReque stID = tbxTempID.Text;
string strDirPathTemp = strDirPath + strTempJobReque stID + "\\";
//Response.Write( strDirPathTemp+ "<br>");

//Rename temporary file storage directory (if it exists) to job
number directory
if (Directory.Exis ts(strDirPathTe mp)) {
Directory.Move( strDirPathTemp, strDirPathJobNo );
}

What do I do?

Thanks again for any more help.

Hi Matt,

Looks like your appdomain is recycling.

You may check that using Perfmon and application restrats counter to
verify
if your appdomain is recycling.

Also, what is the size of the file which causes the issues? Is it each
and
every file which causes the session to recycle??

I've got a rather strange issue occuring.

I used forms based .NET authentication, although I'm also setting some
session variables when people login.

However, I've found when people use one of my webform pages which
includes a
button that pops up a window where you can upload files, if you upload
files
in this popup window, it seems to somehow clear out all of the session
variables and the users get logged out. However, if people don't upload
files, then their use of the webform page proceeds as
required/expected.

I'm planning to phase out the session variables by upgrading my code,
however I can't understand this problem which seems quite strange and
I'd
like to know what the problem is.

Any clues would be greatly appreciated.

Cheers
Matt
If it helps, here is code in question:
The main part of the code behind for the upload page:

private void Page_Load(objec t sender, System.EventArg s e)
{
// Put user code to initialize the page here
if (!IsPostBack) {
pnlUpload.Visib le = true;
pnlUploaded.Vis ible = false;
}
if (IsPostBack) {
pnlUpload.Visib le = false;
pnlUploaded.Vis ible = true;
}
strJobRequestID = Request.QuerySt ring["JobRequest ID"];
btnClose2.Attri butes.Add("oncl ick", "return closeupdate();" );
}
public void UploadFile(obje ct Sender,EventArg s E) { //Event handler
for
the upload button
lblFileList.Tex t = "";

if (Request.Files. Count > 0) { //if there are files attached

//Get directory path
string strDirPath = Server.MapPath( ".\\" + "/../../detail/files/" +
strJobRequestID + "/");
//Response.Write( strDirPath);

//if Directory path doesn't exist then create it
if (!Directory.Exi sts(strDirPath) ) {
Directory.Creat eDirectory(strD irPath);
}

//Iterate through the Request.Files collection
for(IntLoop=0; IntLoop<Request .Files.Count; IntLoop++) {
if (Request.Files[IntLoop] !=null) { //Checking for valid file
// Since the FileName gives the entire path we use Substring
function
to get the filename (including the file extension).
string StrFileName =
Request.Files[IntLoop].FileName.Subst ring(Request.Fi les[IntLoop].FileName.LastI ndexOf("\\")
+ 1);
string StrFileType = Request.Files[IntLoop].ContentType;
int IntFileSize = Request.Files[IntLoop].ContentLength;

//Check for file length > 0 and Upload if it is
if (IntFileSize > 0) {
//Save the file to the web server
string filePath = (strDirPath + "/" + StrFileName);
Request.Files[IntLoop].SaveAs(filePat h);
lblFileList.Tex t += "<li>" + StrFileName + "</li>";
}
}
}

}

}

Here is the main code for the webform. Notice the
"multipart/form-data" -
could that be causing the problem somehow?
