    Help with file uploader, php script, Windows Authentication


      I am trying to setup a really basic web-based file uploader that I will expand upon later. I have the flex application working well enough (very basic). However, I have a php script in a secure folder using windows authentication. When I try to send the file to the script, it doesn't seem to like my credentials, and refuses to do anything. I do not get an error message; just nothing happens.


      My questions are:


      Does anybody know where I should've looked before posting this thread?

      Do I even have PHP set up correctly? (At first I just made a txt file and put a .php extension on it, then I tried to setup PHP on the server, but it was a little confusing for me)

      Is Windows Authentication the problem?

      I do plan on implementing SQL Server in the future (to keep track of Files and user-defined attributes for files), but I do not want to store the files in SQLserver, just their pathnames.

      Is there a simple way to use ColdFusion (for free) to acheive this end?


      I am somewhat experienced at coding applications, but am totally new to server-side scripts.


      This is my php script:


      $tempFile = $_FILES['Filedata']['tmp_name'];
      $fileName = $_FILES['Filedata']['name'];
      $fileSize = $_FILES['Filedata']['size'];
      move_uploaded_file($tempFile, "./" . $fileName);

      This is my flex application:

      <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
      <s:Application xmlns:fx="http://ns.adobe.com/mxml/2009"
                        xmlns:mx="library://ns.adobe.com/flex/mx" minWidth="955" minHeight="600">


           private var fileRef:FileReference
           private var uploadFilePath:String
           private function selectFile():void
                fileRef = new FileReference();
                fileRef.addEventListener(Event.SELECT, fileRef_select);
           private function fileRef_select(evt:Event):void
                fileRef.upload(new URLRequest("http://SERVERLOCATION/PDFUploader.php"));

           <s:Button top="30" left="5" label="Browse" click="selectFile()"/>

      Thanks to any who take the time to respond.
