    I find this problem will happen in the chrome, IE9, if i use firefox, it won't happen.

    more IE version and browser need test.
  • Hello, aniss42!

    1) click on the firebug button at the bottom right corner of the FireFox window
    2) a window should pop up in the lower part of the screen
    3) if not selected, click on the Console tab
    4) click on the arrow next to 'Console' and select Show XMLHttpRequests if not selected already
    5) refresh the page of the forum with the upload dialog (ctrl + f5)
    6) try to upload a file - at least one line looking like:
    GET http://localhost/v/index.php?p=/post/checkupload/1285952177212_UploadAttachment_1/0&randval=0.14999688610715622
    should appear in the lower part of the screen.

    Click on the + button at the left of this line, that should expand the XMLHttpRequest to the server, navigate to the Response tab in the newly expanded panel, select the response and post it here. Should look something like this:

    Please let us know what you find or if something fails along the way.

    aniss, can you add or uncomment the following line in your config.php file:

    $Configuration['Garden']['Errors']['MasterView'] = 'deverror.master.php';

    Hi @Tim,

    I am having the same issue. I followed the direction above for using FireBug and this is the error I receive:
    uncaught exception: [Exception... "Component returned failure code: 0x80070057 (NS_ERROR_ILLEGAL_VALUE) []"  nsresult: "0x80070057 (NS_ERROR_ILLEGAL_VALUE)"  location: "JS frame :: :: anonymous :: line 127"  data: no]

    Line 0
    I'm running Vanilla Version 2.0.11 and FileUpload Version 1.2.1. I didn't see any XMLHttpRequests requests being sent when I selected my file for upload (tho I do see Vanilla's auto save XMLHttpRequests requests).

    Any thoughts on what be causing this issue?

  • As mentioned above:
    Works with Firefox =) But not with Chrome.
  • Ya mine is throwing the same exception as Brad's is
  • I think I found where it's messing up at, but I'm not sure starts at line 342 in the fileupload.js file. I base this upon using the breakpoints in firebug to see when i got the error.

    if (ExecuteApcLookup) {
    var Action = ['post','checkupload',ApcKey,this.ProgressBars[UploaderID].Progress];

    var FinalURL = gdn.url(Action.join('/')+'?randval='+Math.random());

    success:jQuery.proxy(this.Progress, this)
  • Chmod your upload folder 777 and try again.
  • Ya it has alrdy been chmod to 777 =(
  • 777 is a *MAJOR* security hazard, 705 for directories and 604 for files should be adequate
