File Upload with pure ASP

File Upload with pure ASP

File Upload with pure ASP

Hi everyone,
I'm a newbie Tek-Tipper, trying to trying to get a simple text file to upload from a simple HTML form into a specific directory on a client's server - using only ASP/VBScript. When I found the Jacob Gilly solution http://www.asp101.com/articles/jacob/scriptupload....) I was delighted. I carefully copied and pasted everything into the 'upLoadEnd.asp' file, and the only thing I changed was the destination path.

However, although I get no error messages and all I see is the "File saved!" message at the end, there is nothing in the destination folder. When I put some "response.write" lines into the 'upLoadEnd.asp' file to watch progress all seems well, it tells me that the file was indeed loaded and saved in the correct place. Yet looking around after many attempts (including changing paths) it doesn't seem to be anywhere on the server.

Can anyone please put me on the right track...?

RE: File Upload with pure ASP

What Windows write permissions did you set up for the destination folder? We are talking about the 'upLoadEnd.asp' file being on the destination server, right?

If it is a .txt file, has it appeared on notepad somewhere?
