Please do not double post your questions. It is against the posting guidelines.


Now then, Where exactly are you reading in the contents of the file you wish to upload and sending that? I do not see it in the code provided, it appears you do not do it at all.

Yes, that is how it works. You need do some kinda of content disposition heading too I think which could be tricky.
I recomend searching for a quick example on the web, there should be plenty.
