Form with more than 1 file upload field saves 0 byte file fo


#1

Im using the file_column plugin to upload files from my application. The
problem I am encountering is that I have a form with 2 file upload
fields
and when I submnit that form with files selected, I would get a message
from
the browser(Firefox) saying that a script on the page is taking a long
time
to execute and whether I want to cancel it or continue. Whichever option
I
choose, only 1 file(PDF) is uploaded fully to the server while the
other(Image) has a filesystem entry but its 0 bytes.

Can you run the unit tests that come with file_column? I know that
there is test coverage for that problem. Let us know if it passes on
your server.

I ran the tests and here’s the output:

The test with 2 file columns seems to pass so i’m baffled by this.

Have you tried different browsers and web servers?

I have the same problem when performing uploads on my development
machine,
the results from the file_column_test.rb are similar to the ones on the
live
server. I’ve tried Firefox, IE and Opera, the results are the same
though

okay, i found out what the problem was, as the files were being saved
with
0600, I added an after_save handler to the model classes and set the
file
permissions to 0644. I think I was overriding file_column’s after save
handler and causing the issue.
