    File upload not working

    I have Joomla ver 1.5.3 running on an xampp web server. (windows 2003 SE OS)
    Joomla has installed fine and is working but i cannot get the file upload to work. It asks if i would like to upload a file from my computer but it wont get past trying to upload section..

    Where are the settings I need to configure and what do I need to configure for a windows os setup?

    I would check permissions with IIS6 (Internet Information Services).

    Control Panel > Administrative Tools > Internet Information Services IIS Manager

    As far as i'm aware joomla uses FTP to upload files, the setting are entered during install or in the global config>>>>server settings

    I'm sure it does use FTP to upload and download files, however if you don't have permissions to write to a web server, then you wont be able to upload files.

    I would enter a user that has permissions to upload to the server the details are hidden to standard users also check the the remember password is checked.

    When I played with xampp. AFAIR as a default, the ftp server had its own folder that it classed as root.

    the folder was completely separate from where web files were held.

    I couldn't be bothered fiddling to find out if it can be changed.

    If say the "root" of your website was something like xxx/yyy and you'd installed egJP into xxx/yyy/eg then the global config ftp root would be set to /eg.

    Like I say, you'd have to get your ftp server to acknowledge that xxx/yyy was root first

    it doesn't really matter as long as you don't want to really run a site from an xampp package remotely.

    Just use windoze explorer to copy files into folders.

    The FTP functions WILL work on a real world server

    The ftp server is working fine i can connect to the server using the username and password i have setup.

    it connects and i can upload / delete using explorer.

    Why wont docman module work?????

    I have set the details as far as i can see but it still will not go past step 2 (file upload). Is there anyway of getting a debug file (log file) of this process as it just goes back to step two.

    I don't know what the problem is but can you confirm that you've set your ftp servers root path to be the same as your websites root path?

    e.g if you connect to your ftp server using a normal ftp client - it defaults to seeing all the jooomla folders admin/cache/documents etc and configuration.php type files.

    I've had the same problem with docman module. I've tried website root, docman root no luck. It goes though the motions of uploading but does'nt do anything

    Yes the root points to the joomla root when you login.

    bells are starting to go off - when i migrated my 1.0. site to 1.5.3, the head said docman wouldn't work and so he went and found latest docman module and re-installed it.

    I don't have local FTP setup so I can't test it locally

    Maybe it is borked!

    Try giving it a go - I think latest is docman 1.4 RC3
