CGI upload script

Okay, I got the SQL settings changed after the domain resolved, and edited the upload.cgi script as you said to, and still the picture links are screwy (I even tried removing my username from the $dir path, the script told me that was a no-no):

http://www.dangerouslystupid.com/cgi-bin/www.dangerouslystupid.com/uploads/stfu3.jpg

Here is the current code:

CuteFTP, change to the folder you are trying to upload to and look at the path you

Just noticed my path was incorrect: "/home/danger7/public_html"

I changed it to "/home/danger7/public_html/uploads", but it had no effect (other than not listing html files :D)

I'm absolutely lost here...

# absolute URL to folder files will be uploaded to
$folder = "www.dangerouslystupid.com/uploads";

Maybe this should be "/home/danger7/public_html/uploads" I'm not sure if that is what your latest post was referring to.

Code: [Select]
$domain = "dangerouslystupid";
should be dangerouslystupid.com

That $domain config is just if you want the uploads to only occur from your domain. I doubt that's causing this problem.  But, okay, let's test it out and leave that blank (leave just the quotes) and see what happens.

Also, the $folder should be:

Code: [Select]
$folder = "http://www.dangerouslystupid.com/uploads";

Also, just in case you changed this again ... your $dir should be:

That $domain config is just if you want the uploads to only occur from your domain.

It shouldn't effect the function on fo0hzy's site, but it's meant to prevent other people from having it run on their sites. That was the problem with some of the mail forms; there was no validation test to keep them from being run off-site by spammers. So, it could be set to blank for testing purposes, but once things work, it should be set to the domain for security.

Yes, I'm not saying it's not good to do/have, I'm saying that it is probably not what is causing the problem he is having with this error message.   :D

By leaving it blank for testing, we can see if that's effecting the error or not.

WAAAHOOOO!!! It worked!!! Should I add the $domain config, or can I just turn on hotlink protection for the uploads folder, but allow images to be posts on my domain?

Thanks again!!! :o

Well, if it was the $domain config, then maybe we should figure out why it was causing the error.

Try entering the http:// in front of the domain.  Maybe it needs that, who knows, LOL (temperamental scripts!)  :)

It worked! :yey:

So, with that, I don't need to worry about enabling hotlink protection?

Yup. But you may want to enable Hotlinks Protection for other reasons (so people can't link your files from their website), that's up to you.

So, are you good then?  Are we done here? LOL  :love:

That's great! :yey:

The domain security thing has to do with the script, not the folder. Let's say I'm a lazy website owner. I come across your upload script. Without the security setting, I can call your script from one of the pages on my site and it will process it as if it were on my site. You might not mind someone doing that, but after all the work you put into it, hey, make them suffer like you did! :D
