    CFILE  - accept="image/*"  MIME type error


      I'm using cfile to upload images to my hosting server, but my Catch error keeps being thrown, and I can't figure it out.

      *** I have checked with my hosting admin, and cffile is enabled.

      This code works fine on my dev server, but when I moved it up to my hosting server,

      Here is my code;

      I've tried, removing the accept property from the cffile tag, and changed I have tried changing it to accept="image/gif" and tried uploading a .gif but still no joy.

      If anyone could shed some light on this, I would be greatful'

          1)Is application.fullPathPhotos a full path to a directory, ending in a backslash (e.g. c:\uploads\myPics\)?

          2)filefield="photo" (without the form prefix)

            A good place to start would be to <cfrethrow> the exception in your
            <cfcatch> block so you can see what the actual error is, without having to

              Thanks for your suggestions guys,

              Both of your suggestions have lead me to this question.
              My path to the upload folder looks like this, "www.mywebsite.com/projectname/imgs/photos/ ". Every example I have seen, has been to use a full path starting with c:/.
              Does it matter that I'm using a domain name as the path?

              Here is what I got back from the <cfrethrow> tag;

              Security: The requested template has been denied access to http:\www.mywebsite.com\projectname\imgs\photos.
              The following is the internal exception message: access denied (java.io.FilePermission http:\www.mywebsite.com\projectname\imgs\photos read)

              I noticed that on the error page, the directory that has denied acces only has 1 "\" after the http:
              I've double checked my code, and both "\"'s are there.
              Could that be the problem?

              Thanks for any help you can offer, this thing is driving me crazy. ;)

                Yes, very much so.

                Having an HTTP URL there makes no sense at all. It might make sense if you
                had a file URI there (not an HTTP one), but not sure if it would work. it
                should be a file-system path.
