File Upload to an .ashx Script.

Posted By:      Posted Date: August 27, 2010    Points: 0   Category :ASP.Net

Hoping that someone can help me with this. I've been tearing my hair out for days looking for sources and coming up with nothing.

Basically, the scenario is this: I'm working on a project whereby an iPhone will make an HTTP-POST call to an .ashx file on my site. The POST will consist of some fields and a file.

I'm having difficulty - read that as no luck what-so-ever - in finding the form fields or the file when I look at the HTTPContext object in the debug mode of Visual Studio. And if I look at HTTPContext.Request.Files.Count (where I would expect to find a file count) the value is always zero!!

Please help, very confused by this!

Asp.Net upload file access denied



I have the problem below, if anyone can help me, appreciate it.

Server Error in '/' Application.

Access to the path 'c:\Inetpub\EnewsAttFiles\employ-e-header2.jpg' is denied.

Description: An unhandled exception occurred during the execution of the current web request. Please review the stack trace for more information about the error and where it originated in the code.

Exception Details: System.UnauthorizedAccessException: Access to the path 'c:\Inetpub\EnewsAttFiles\employ-e-header2.jpg' is denied.

ASP.NET is not authorized to access the requested resource. Consider granting access rights to the resource to the ASP.NET request identity. ASP.NET has a base process identity (typically {MACHINE}\ASPNET on IIS 5 or Network Service on IIS 6) that is used if the application is not impersonating. If the application is impersonating via <identity impersonate="true"/>, the identity will be the anonymous user (typically IUSR_MACHINENAME) or the authenticated request user.

To grant ASP.NET access to a file, right-click the file in Explorer, choose "Properties" and select the Security tab. Click "Add" to add the appropriate user or group. Hig

why I can not upload file to web by using WebClient.UploadFile method?



I am using WebClient.UploadFile method to upload a file to a web page.

The code is like this:

WebClient client = new WebClient(); 
byte[] responseBinary = client.UploadFile(url, fileName); 
string response = Encoding.UTF8.GetString(responseBinary);

But I can not upload it to server.

I used fiddler to see what happens, and it shows me the following information:

http status code: 302, request headers: POST /testing/upload/default.aspx HTTP/1.1

http status code: 302, request headers: GET /testing/upload/default.aspx?AspxAutoDetectCookieSupport=1 HTTP/1.1

http status code: 200, request headers: GET /(X(1)S(22pynhvxd3eqsb455pudx145))/testing/upload/default.aspx?AspxAutoDetectCookieSupport=1 HTTP/1.1

I would like to know, why I get 302 code, and why it redirect me to the strange url with (X(1)S(22pynhvxd3eqsb455pudx145)) ?

By the way, the web page is ok to upload file by using web explorer.

Upload file control intefering with javacript and Sys.WebForms.PageRequestManager.getInstance?

Ok I'm trying to use the dreaded Upload File control and it's not within an UpdatePanel. Here's what I have, I'm using jQuery to display messages on the client side from the server. One of the things I'm doing is I'm setting up a script to run using: Sys.WebForms.PageRequestManager.getInstance().add_endRequest(iamloading); and in my iamloading I have: function imaloading() {    $(document).ready(function () {        displayMessage();    }) } Not to bore you with details but the displayMessage is where I am doing the jQuery, this has worked for ever.Now I'm building this page with the Uploadfile control and this stops working and if I remove the control it works again.I've made sure that the function handler is created for iamloading but it never fires as though something has unregistered the event. Any help or suggestion would be of great healp.Thanks
