Forum OpenACS Q&A: File uploads in 4.6.3

In previous versions of OACS I have been using some old ArsDigita code I hacked for file uploads. With the permissions changed for AOLServer in 4.6.3, this no longer works. Security I guess is the reason for the change.

I'm wondering how to fix the file upload. Set up a directory owned by nobody, or what?

I noticed there is a util_http_file_upload procedure that sounds like a good choice, but I can't figure out the parameters.

Thanks,
Michael

What permissions changes are you referring to? You changed unix file permissions for your AOLserver user or something? What do you mean exactly?
