 P: n/a Hi, I've been trying to upload file using webclient.uploadfile method from my IIS webserver to an Apache webserver without any success. On the Apache server (server that receives the incoming file) I have a simple php script, getFile.php to receive the file. The script look like this: "; if (move_uploaded_file($_FILES['userfile']['tmp_name'],$uploadFile)) { print "File is valid, and was successfully uploaded. "; print "Here's some more debugging info:\n"; print_r($_FILES); } else { print "Error receiving file:\n"; print_r($_FILES); } print ""; ?> I know this script work perfectly if I use a standard html with method. However, file needs to be sent from an asp.net page instead of html. People on the newsgroup have been suggesting me to use webclient.uploadfile method, however, I just could not get it to work. Perhaps there is something wrong with my php script or maybe there something else needs to be done to the webclient. If anybody has came across with the similar situation, can you show me how to do it both on the ASP.NET side and php side (or perl) Thanks Brian Nov 16 '05 #1

 P: n/a This aspect of the question would best be suited in a php newsgroup/community. If you have related ASP.NET code using the UploadFile method then you can post that here. Nov 16 '05 #2

 P: n/a It might be a php and ASP.NET question and that's why I have it posted here. In my asp.net form I have wc as new webclient wc.uploadfile("http://sample.com/getFile.php", "POST", "c:\temp\text.txt") and I also tried wc.uploadfile("http://sample.com/getFile.php", "c:\temp\text.txt"), non of them returned any error, however the file never get uploaded. thanks Brian Nov 16 '05 #3

 P: n/a i haven't tested (use an network sniff or create a dump page), but suspect the name is not correct. the standard format is -----------------------------7d01ecf406a6 Content-Disposition: form-data; name="myfile"; filename="C:\Inetpub\wwwroot\Upload\myFile.txt" Content-Type: text/plain this is some test data -----------------------------7d01ecf406a6 name equals the the name of the input file control in the html version "; | if (move_uploaded_file($_FILES['userfile']['tmp_name'],$uploadFile)) | { | print "File is valid, and was successfully uploaded. "; | print "Here's some more debugging info:\n"; | print_r($_FILES); | } | else | { | print "Error receiving file:\n"; | print_r($_FILES); | } | print ""; | ?> | | I know this script work perfectly if I use a standard html with method.

If anybody has came across with the similar situation, can you show me how to do it both on the ASP.NET side and php side (or perl) This is a bug in WebClient.UploadFile() that exists since .NET 1.0. It does not create a syntactically correct multipart/form-data request. You'll have to use WebRequest instead and build your own multipart/form-data request.
