Re: Uploading files with speical characters....

jodleren escribió:
I work on s system, which is based on one.com (Denmark) - and used
elsewhere, in my case in the baltics.
When uploading files, there is problem with Lativian characters - the
e with overscore (e with a line above; ē )

The problem is, that when uploading, it changes the "e" to the html
code:

echo "\r\n10- ".$_FILES["newfile_$i "]['name']."<br>";
result:
whatever_ē.pdf
I haven't found the PHP manual page where such feature is documented but
a few tests have shown that this behaviour changes depending on the
charset parameter of the "Content-Type" HTTP header; even if I don't set
an actual HTTP header and I just use a <metatag:

<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=UTF-8">

With a packet sniffer I've determined that it's not the browser who
changes it. If you write into a file the entities are still there, so it
doesn't seem to be an Apache feature. It's really weird.

If it's not feasible to change your encoding to UTF-8, well, I don't
know what you can do...

I have the same problem but with uploading excel files to mysql 5. It
doesn't matter if I use UTF-8 or iso-8859-1 and uploading the
trademark symbol. htmlspecialchar s() or htmletities() doesn't help?

doesn't matter if I use UTF-8 or iso-8859-1 and uploading the
trademark symbol. htmlspecialchar s() or htmletities() doesn't help?- Hidequoted text -
I tried some of these, no luck.

I made a replace for known letters ( e.g. ē =e ) end for the
rest I just replace them with _ (underscore)
That way I can avoid any problems.
I am just wondering when they start using russian letters in
filenames... hope they wont

Hi there. I've spent the weekend getting ever more frustrated, trying to get an upload file function working on a website. The site is hosted by a company called oneandone. They're using PHP 4.2. 3, not in safe mode. I think that the basic problem is the set-up for the temp folder, but I don't have access to the .ini settings. I'm pretty sure it's possible, because I've got MyPHPAdmin running, and

Good afternoon. The entire task that I'm trying to achieve is to allow a user to browse and upload multiple files simultaneously, hiding the Browse button of <input> tags of type="file" and replacing it with a button of my own background color and text. The file paths I'd like displayed in a textarea and then the files uploaded at once.

For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
