    Default Is Dreamweaver 8 a nono for PHP uploads



    Running into a problem getting file attachments to actually attach to formmail sent email. Emails are received but attachments aren't. I know issues existed in previous Dreamweaver editions when creating PHP files. In an effort to troubleshoot the issue I'm wondering if Dreamweaver may be the culprit. By the way, I'm using Apache/LINUX as my server.

    1.) Anyone know if Dreamweaver 8 is okay to use?

    2.) Does Dreamweaver add extreneous content and have a problem sending ASCII that I'm not aware of? Intuitive is a subjective word indeed.

    Have modified the code appropiately per documentation in formmail.php and sampleform.htm and checked with my host provider which allows file uploads. May dabble with php.ini and .htaccess. I'm just thinking the actual upload isn't right somehow.

    If ya feel like flaming me thats okay; i'm resilient. I'm trying to figure this out on my own. Any feedback would be appreciated.

    Default Re: Is Dreamweaver 8 a nono for PHP uploads

    looking at .htaccess (havent done this for years)
    order, deny, allow seems kinda redundant.
    my .htaccess files reads as follows
    and the php file is set to 644

    Mode User Group World
    Read X X X
    Write X 0 0
    Execute 0 0 0
    Permission 6 4 4

    Code:
    .htaccess file in /public_html folder is:
    # -FrontPage-
    IndexIgnore .htaccess */.??* *~ *# */HEADER* */README* */_vti*
    <Limit GET POST>
    order deny,allow
    deny from all
    allow from all
    </Limit>
    <Limit PUT DELETE>
    order deny,allow
    deny from all
    </Limit>
    AuthName www.sexyrussiantravel.com
    AuthUserFile /home/sexyruss/public_html/_vti_pvt/service.pwd
    AuthGroupFile /home/sexyruss/public_html/_vti_pvt/service.grp

    Lightbulb Re: Is Dreamweaver 8 a nono for PHP uploads

    so far I believe Dreamweaver 8 to be okay sending .PHP files.

    Further, concerning file attachment not working, I found a solution.

    By moving <formmail>.php into the root (www) directory on the server, which also contains .htaccess, the attachments were included in the received email.

    For prototype reasons, I had previously placed formmail.php and sampleform.htm in a subdirectory I had created.

    Hope this post helps someone along the way avoid some grief.
