I'm using Windows and Postgres 8.
I installed RMagic gem thingy and FileColumn plugin ok.

I followed instructions exactly as directed on FileColumn web site which
is very straight forward:

---model
 class My_model < ActiveRecord::Base
        file_column :column_for_file_name
 end

-----view -upload form--set to mulitpart
<%= file_column_field "my_model", "column_for_file_name" %>


---controller

upload
  @my_model = My_model.new()
  @my_model.save(params[:my_model])
end

I get a new record inserted into the database but without the filename
value and no file is uploaded, althought the directory structure is
created. I dont get any error message at all. Can suggest someway to
troubleshoot this problem as i don't want to delve into plugin code.
Help much appreciated. Si.

My suggestion is to just write your file upload code yourself.  It is
pretty
straightforward.  I wrote mine in my models.  Just my opinion.  I tried
filecolumn but just annoying to use especially with the requirement that
when you link to a file in your view, you need the actual object present
rather than just having the filename.
