upload files to os x with cffile

Dec 28, 2012 5:05 PM

I'm working in my dev environment on my macbook pro. It is setup like this:


CF 10 and sql server running on parallels 8. I run cf builder on OS X along with Cornerstone for Subversion control All my web files are located on my mac os x hard drive.


My web app has several forms in which you can upload files. I can not seem to figure out the right path to put in the destination field for cffile. I have tried /path/to/location/ format but it does not work. Any ideas?


Thanks in advance.

    If \path\to\location\ is under the web root, then try
