Just a question... are you uploading from a MAC operating system? The clearing of the session has also been a problem to me but it is possible to post the session id along with other post parameters.
I am facing the problem called ioError 2038 every time I'm trying to upload from a MAC platform. No browser work here. Actually the uploading server side php script is never reached because of the error 2038. I do not know if I'm missing some important header information or mime types, beats me??
I forgot to refer to the case I have opened in here:
This is most peculiar cos I am definitely not hitting the server side script (which I thought was due to session clearing) but may not be then cos I get no error like you state and also my login window doesn't rear its ugly head. But I DO know for certain, the server script is not being hit, cos I run a simple write action to append a log file and that is not even running???
And yeh uploading from a mac os x system. However, it fails in FireFox on the PC also.
Through Flash's FileReference and FileReferenceList classes, you can create a powerful file uploader that allows the user to upload multiple files with a single form element. But beware: unless the user happens to be using IE, the upload will use a new browser session to upload the files. This means that if you require that a user be authenticated before uploading something (and you better be), the upload won't work - the request will be forwarded to the login form, or to wherever your system forwards unauthorized requests. This is a maddening bug to track down, and there is nothing you can do to make Flash use the right session. The work around is to send the session cookie in the url and, on the server side, use that to override the new (and wrong) session cookie sent by Flash
But you do use MAC when testing it? I'm having no trouble whatsoever on a windows pc platform.. uploading works in all tested browser here... but I would really appreciate if someone holds the key to solve this strange problem :-)
sorry man I was editing my post to state the mac answer and you posted in the meantime :)
