Ubuntu Servers :: Upload Images On My Website Via A Web Browser?
May 22, 2010
I have been trying to make it possible to upload images on my website via a web browser. I have created the HTML form, I can browse to my desktop and upload an image. But my question is, where is it on my server after I upload it? I am running 8.04 on my server.
looking to implement a website where business partners can download/upload documents. The files and the "partner areas" should be password protected.Are there open source projects / Ubuntu packages readily available for implementing this type of web-based file sharing service
I am running Linux from a DVD, not installed. I am not good with installing software, but since the DVD cannot be corrupted, I am content to operate this way. Lately, I have been having problems that previously did not occur. When I try to click on the checkbox to get rid of emails, it doesn't register in most cases, or when it does, I am clicking multiple times so it registers twice, meaning it is unchecked again. Even more frustrating is some issues that are affecting my ability to update my business. I am trying to modify spreadsheets (text not calculations).
Whenever I try to click & drag to select something to change, it keeps jumping around to select only some of what I want, something else or some combination of the 2. When I try to copy and paste several fields from 1 column to another, everything from the several fields in the source column ends up together in the last field in the target column. I am also trying to download some images from a website. There is a single column of links to the images. I have to click on the link to get to the image in order to copy it, then back out to continue looking for more links to do the same.
My computer keeps jumping back 2 steps, then forward 2 steps, and sometimes I lose my place in that list. I could deal with it if it were a small number of links, but this is a list of probably close to 20,000 links. Again, i am operating off of a live DVD so this should not be corruptible, but this has just started happening, and has been an issue the last several sessions.
have setup a LAMP server with ubuntu 10.04 server edition x86 for my study in VMware Workstation 7.1 For a assignment I had to make a php script that would load a file up to the server and set the name in a mysql database. According to the book the server should set the image in a cryptic folder in the /tmp/ folder.
This isn't working and i also try'd locate and find to find the image i uploaded. I checked the php.ini and file uploads were on but no folder so i set that one to /tmp/ but still no images. Can anyone help me with enabling this function?
I have some pictures that were taken vertically and they show up rotated correctly in nautilus and F-spot correctly. But when I go to upload an image to the web, the preview in the image upload dialog shows the pictures on their side, or horizontal. As a result the uploaded images ends up being horizontal and not vertical, like I want it too. To sum up, the images show up rotated correctly in the file browser, but they aren't actually rotated when uploaded to the web.
But the problem is that this file never gets saved to /var/upload directory (I changed php.ini file, so that uploaded files should be saved into /var/upload. I tried /var/tmp as well, but it's the same). Here are also the permissions of this dir:
BTW, I use Mandriva 2010 64 bit distribution. I spent last two days searching for solution on internet forums, asking people and made absolutely no progress. is it possible to debug what is happening with the supposedly uploaded file? I mean any logs, where I could find trace, what's going wrong? I tried to check /var/log/httpd and files in there, but no success either...
I have a Linux-based PC, running Fedora 13, and am attempting to upload photos from my Soncy Cyber-Shot DSC-W310 digital camera. When I insert the CD that came with my camera, I get the following error message:
Archive: /media/SONYPMB/Install.exe [/media/SONYPMB/Install.exe] End-of-central-directory signature not found. Either this file is not a zipfile, or it constitutes one disk of a multi-part archive. In the latter case the central directory and zipfile comment will be found on the last disk(s) of this archive. zipinfo: cannot find zipfile directory in one of /media/SONYPMB/Install.exe or /media/SONYPMB/Install.exe.zip, and cannot find /media/SONYPMB/Install.exe.ZIP, period.
I spoke with your tech support person, and he indicated that I could press menu, and go to setting and select PictBridge on the USB option, but that does not work either.
I'm running OpenSuse 11.0 in a lamp configuration with Apache 2. I configured Apache with the .conf files instead of YAST because I am running virtual hosts (that's another story).
My problem is that my server will not render the pages unless the permissions are set to 775 which I know is not necessary. This is also causing a problem because I am trying to install WordPress onto the server. WordPress will run, but it unable to upload images because it cannot create the directories required.
Apache2 is running as 755 with root as owner and www as group. I changed the owner of the htdocs sub-directories to myself, and created a group that has permissions to write to the directory. WordPress runs as my user and has the same permissions (775).
Well I have vsftpd working flawlessly in a file browser or ftp client. I can log in, upload and download; but I cannot upload or download through a web browser. I have tried IE8/9, firefox, iceweasel and epiphany to no avail.
Ever since switching to openSUSE 11.1, I have been having problems with certain websites (using the version of Firefox that came with openSUSE 11.1). Some website's CSS code won't load until repeated reloads - for example, wachovia.com. I'll visit the website and it will be all distorted because the stylesheets did not load, and I will have to refresh a number of times before it becomes usable. Other website's images won't load until multiple refreshes, like facebook.
Is this an openSUSE issue? An openSUSE interaction with Firefox issue? I've never had this problem on XP or Ubuntu.
I configured non-anonymous ftp server in my Ubuntu 10.04.it's working downloading and uploading through thrid party software like filezilla.Now i think that without using any other software i want to upload and download the ftp content in browser it'self.i heard that using webmin i can upload and download ftp data sharing through browser.
One of my user wants to be able to upload file via browser to the server. For that, i need to grant apache read and write access to a folder. How much secure is allowing apache to grant complete read and write access to a folder ?
How do you phrase that subject? I have installed Debian Lenny on a Toshiba Satellite 1800 but I have a problem with browsers rendering images. Instead of the image there is a gray box with a circle and an arrow in the middle. This happens in both Firefox and Epiphany.
I have installed LAMP server in ubuntu 10.04 using sudo tasksel command @ my home and with all the port forwarding and stuff its working fine and i can access it via internet and images load fine, but when i installed LAMP using same exact same command @ my friends place and proper network configs, the php pages load but the images don't load. (Images which are very small in size like less then 5 kb is loading though, like small icons, smileys...)Tried clearing cache, different browsers, different image formats.
Since I have done some software updates after moving to ubuntu 11.04 some images are not shown correctly in mozilla firefox. Their colors are blue-green like some effects are applied. it is something like night vision or as in the movie "predator". How can I fix this error?
The issue I'm having is that browsers in Ubuntu 10.04 stall at the part of the process for loading web pages that is noted by the "Looking Up (website address)...". The page eventually continues to load, but it takes a long time. This problem effects all browsers on the machine (tried Firefox and Chromium). It is not a problem with the connection, because a Windows 7 laptop and even the Windows XP partition on the Ubuntu machine function as they should.
I have just installed opensuse and the codecs to replace windows on my laptop. This is my third day using open suse and some of the websites i try to open (amazon.co.uk, gmail.com and others) redirect to a chinese website called www.net.cn) This is the same with the firefox and opera browsers.
i have a problem with my new router and ubuntu 10.10. The problem is that my internet connection show me that my laptop had connect to internet but my browser can't open a website ( this problem is the same with my netbook ) to fix it always must turn it off and after on either it never makes.
i have VPS server and i installed Xserver on it and all ok i created new user for my client but i need to limit his access to the following
he can download and upload to his home file " browser by Firefox" he can't install or use any application "just the one i installed it" he can't see the file system or browser it !! if i can give him specific space on harddisk would be better he can extract and compress files he can't edit the settings ....
i have another sensitive folder and setting i don't want him to see it so how to limit his access?
I am running php on my ubuntu server, and I am trying to upload files to it.
Heres my code:
I use the move_uploaded_file(), but I can't get the location to work correctly. "/var/www/upload/" uploads to "/var/www/". This is the only way i can get this code to work. I would like to upload to "/var/www/upload/".
I have a compressed backup that I want to crypt and upload to a remote server through ssh once in a while. The problem is with the size, more than 4 GB. If the connection drops how does scp know to resume? This should be an automated process.
I would like to upload files via ftp or sftp to my web directory at /var/www/...
Originally I had installed openssh-server (through apt-get, before learning about tasksel). I assumed this only had ssh support and not ftp, so after a quick search, I installed vsftpd. I would like to learn how to configure openssh, and I mention vsftpd in case there is a conflict.
Right now I am able to log in to my server box through ssh/ftp, but I can only modify my home directory. I created a directory: /var/www/andrew and set permissions to drwxr-xr-x. I am unable to upload files to this folder.
What do I have to do to resolve this, and is there anything else I should know about my situation?
But I can't upload files or pictures all the time.Everytime I tried to upload , it tips me : "can't create file or folder ...... . is its parents folder writable by the server?"Now it's considered as a bug.But I tried 3 methods introduced on the net . But none of them worked. They are : 1: change the folder permission to 777 , not work for me.2: change the URL to "wp-content/uploads" not "/wp-content/uploads" , not work for me.3: use full url not "wp-content/uploads" also not work.
When I try to upload files via FTP to a specific folder (/var/www/myfolder/) I get the message 550 permission is denied. I set CHMOD 777 for this folder (I had to do this via SSH cause I was not allowed to do this in FileZilla)
I am setting up a small competition for a forum where there are a set of programming tasks to complete (in various languages). At the end of the allocated time, the fastest program that successfully completes the task wins.I would like to set up a server similar to the way the Google AI challenge works, where users can upload code to the server via an html page and the code is executed and profiled on the server.The problem is obviously security... so... how can I configure my server so that the uploaded scripts are run in a completely jailed environment and do not have access to anything outside their folder and cannot execute any commands on the server?The chain of events looks like this: User writes script on local machine -> user zips script -> user browses to server html page -> user uploads script -> script is compiled and executed on the server -> user is shown output from script
