File upload problem with enctype


#1

Hi All,

I’m having a problem with a simple file upload page. I’ve narrowed it
down to the enctype attribute of the form tag. Here’s my form:

When I submit this form, I get a 404-File not found error. I can access
upload_gpxfile directly, via typing the url directly into my browser,
so the path in the action tag is correct, but it seems that when I
submit the form, the web server can’t find it.

The interesting thing is that when I remove the enctype attribute in
the form tag, the form submits just fine, although I can’t access the
file I’m trying to upload, but that’s to be expected, given the missing
enctype attribute.

Any ideas?

Thanks in advance.

Never mind, I figured it out. The file input field didn’t have a “name”
attribute, just an idea, so that was causing the error. It seems like a
strange way for the app to behave.
