  • upload asp on the cloud

    I've used the upload asp on the classic hosting / older server. Now on the 2008 Windows Server (cloud) and the old script no longer works.
    Can someone direct me to the asp code so visitors can upload files to me?
    There should be two sections: HTML and ASP.
    Thanks for the help.

    the asp code provided is particularly for windows server 2003 environments. On 2008 we provide an script.

    Upload that as a .aspx file to your site space, create a subfolder called uploads and give that uploads folder full write permissions (you can do this using the File Manager in your onCloud control panel).

      Thank you for the reply. I'll try that later today or tomorrow morning and let you know how it works for me ... either success or more questions.

        Maybe I should change my name to "In over my head" ...

        I tried the script and received a server error.

        My site is not a sub-site but does reside inside my main site, like a sub-site.
        Do I need to change anything in this line:
        postedFile.SaveAs(Server.MapPath("~") & "uploads\" & filename)

        I did create the uploads folder and set the permissions to write.

        You have no idea how much a appreciate your help.

          you mean the page is located in a subfolder? If so then you just need to include that path in the saveAs line and make sure your uploads folder is in the correct location aswell.

          So if your site is at - then you would need to make sure the uploads folder is created underneath the subfolder at -

          Then, the saveAs line should read:

          postedFile.SaveAs(Server.MapPath("~") & "subfolder\uploads\" & filename)

          then it should work just fine

            It's working

            Hi Jerermya,

            Couldn't get it to work in the secondary site, but was able to make it work just fine in the parent folder.

            Now that I know it works for me, I can continue with my project.

            Is there a way to have it accept multiple files ... say up to 3.

            thanks ever so much.

              everything's pretty hard coded, probably wouldn't take too much effort but here's a pretty good video tutorial which may help.
