I wrote a web based ftp client using php5 and RAD upload (http://www.radinks.com/upload/
) and I am getting strange results when using -some- instances of IE (versions 8,7, and 6 have been tested).
The upload is ultimately getting its information from a simple html form using the input type="file" tag. So the users are all using the "browse" button provided by this tag, moving to a document on their filesystem and clicking submit. In all cases the file uploads succeed. The problem is that on IE in most cases the filename on the server ends up being the full dos path of the file on the client's machine.
For example, if I upload a file "c:/documents and settings/mike/desktop/Image001.jpg" it shows up on the server file system as a single file named "c:/documents and settings/mike/desktop/Image001.jpg". The server is running CentOS 5 and can handle this name, but it is ugly and looks wrong. It also breaks my display and download script, but I can fix that part if I have to deal with these filenames.
On my copy of IE8 and all copies of Firefox 3.6.3 that I have used have worked as expected and shows up on the server as "Image001.jpg".
Any thoughts/workarounds/solutions would be appreciated.
