I just installed FUDforum on my GoDaddy Url and most everything seems to work except attaching a file.

When I try to upload a small file ~14 Bytes (attached to this message), it seams to upload but I get the following:
File Attachment is too big (over allowed limit of 8388608 bytes)

This is what I have checked:

1) Admin Control Panel

System Configuration
Overview of your system's configuration. Please include this when reporting bugs on the support forum:

FUDforum version: 3.0.3
PHP version: 5.3.6
PHP built on: Linux p3nlhg194.shr.prod.phx3.secureserver.net 2.6.18-238.19.1.el5PAE #1 SMP Fri Jul 15 08:15:44 EDT 2011 i686
Database type: mysql (mysql)
Database version: 5.0.91-log

2) Called GoDaddy and they ran a test on the url and found nothing that would stop uploading via PHP or FTP.

3) The directory structure is \forum, \forum\data and permission is set to 777 for both.

4) I'm performing the action as Administrator.
Allowed File Extensions: (unrestricted)

Any Ideas on what to look at next would be appreciated.

I uninstalled FUDforum and reinstalled it using default paths it suggested.

Still the same result, when trying to attach same file attached to this forum.

Any ideas what I can try next? where I could look?

In post.php I did this where the functions end. looks like the array has everything but the name.

Print_r ($_FILES);

Array ( [attach_control] => Array ( [name] => Array [type] => Array ( [0] => text/plain ) [tmp_name] => Array ( [0] => /tmp/phpXf144X ) [error] => Array ( [0] => 0 ) [size] => Array ( [0] => 14 ) ) )



Not sure why but if I comment out this in post.php I can attach a file even though the name is not passed:


// Old themes may still have non-array upload controls without ...name="attach_control[]" multiple="multiple".
// We do this so that even file upload fields that are not arrays, are processed as arrays... it's easier.
// if (isset($_FILES['attach_control']['name']) && !is_array($_FILES['attach_control']['name'])) {
// $_FILES['attach_control'] = array(
// 'tmp_name' => array($_FILES['attach_control']['tmp_name']),
// 'name' => array($_FILES['attach_control']['name']),
// 'size' => array($_FILES['attach_control']['size']),
// 'error' => array($_FILES['attach_control']['error']),
// 'type' => array($_FILES['attach_control']['type']),
// );
//}


Does anyone have the FUDforum attaching files using a GoDaddy.com account????

Any Ideas how to fix this?

I had the same problem but thanks to WillT's clue I was able to solve it. It turned out to be a pair of brackets in the template.

In post_common.tmpl > upload file I had to the trailing remove "[]" from "attach_control[]" (line 2):
<input type="hidden" id="MAX_FILE_SIZE" name="MAX_FILE_SIZE" value="{VAR: max_as}" />
<input type="file" name="attach_control" multiple="multiple" />
<input type="submit" class="button" name="attach_control_add" value="{MSG: post_upload_file}" />
<input type="hidden" name="tmp_f_val" value="1" />


I hope it helps!
