Got a question....may be a dumb one and easily explainable but where do the attached files get deposited when they are uploaded? Do they get dropped into a folder somewhere? How do I access these files once they are uploaded...from an administrators point of view

All file attachments are stored inside the files/ directory.

I got that part of it..however, if I go and look inside that directory I only see the .htaccess file and no others. I looked at the entry into the database and it reflects the upload...but nothings in the directory....if I look on the thread where it was posted, it's there. So is there some magical words or a wand I can use to show these files in the directory?

Thanks

You can either use the forum's file manager or unlock forum's files at which point the attachments should become visible.

Okay....I'm not sure what the file unlocking is....I couldn't find it in the control panel; however, I looked around the forums and saw people talkinb about the datadump...so i tried it and received this error:


Warning: filesize(): Stat failed for C:/Inetpub/wwwroot/FUDforum/tmp/FUDforum_19_03_2004-08:28.fud.gz (errno=2 - No such file or directory) in C:\Inetpub\wwwroot\forum\adm\admdump.php on line 237
Backup file can be found at: C:/Inetpub/wwwroot/FUDforum/tmp/FUDforum_19_03_2004-08:28.fud.gz, it is occupying bytes

Oh...not sure if it matters but I'm using IIS

Thanks

"Lock/Unlock Forum's Files" menu option under general management.
Does that file exist?

Whoa....I don't have that option....I also noticed that I'm not able to retrieve my uploaded files. The link appears with the correct text; however, when I click it says...Nope...it doesn't exist. Perhaps I am missing something in the installation? Your expertise is very appreciated.


Oh...btw, this is an awesome forum utility...I looked at a couple before this one but none have held a candle to this one.

Very Happy

Ah yes, that option is disables on win32 due to win32 lack of 'real' file system permissions making this option unnecessary.

Do the files that are uploaded downloadeable or the attempts to download them via the link inside the message fails?

Yes...that is exactly what happens...so this is not supported in Win32?

File attachments should work in win32, if they do not work there is a bug either in the forum or a problem with your environment.

Check your PHP.ini and see if file uploads are allowed, also make sure that you have specified temporary directory in PHP.ini.
If both exists try writing a simple upload script as per example on php.net
