swfupload doesn't work well with lighttpd

Reported by: nbachiyski Owned by:
Milestone: 2.5 Priority: high
Severity: major Version:
Component: General Keywords: has-patch swfupload lighttpd lighty 400
Focuses: Cc:


When trying to upload a file, swfupload gets HTTP error 400. There is more information about the issue in the swfupload forums.

The current degradation mechanism takes into account only client-side issues and if the browser is capable of loading swfupload this will be the method used. The attached patch tells the degrade script if the current webserver is lighty, so that it can degrade gracefully. The current loaded handler for swfupload had to be removed, because the degrade script does essentially the same and the custom hadnler used to override the degrade plugin.

Evidently the issue is fixed in lighttpd 1.5:

  • Resolution wontfix deleted
  • Status changed from closed to reopened

We have to fix this in some way, since still most of the people are using 1.4.x and not 1.5. Here is a quote about 1.5 from lighttpd's download page:

No. We don't have a release date for it. Especially not with all the big changes going on.

Attached is a new patch, which degrades to the old upload form only if it is lighttpd < 1.5.0 and shows an informational message to tell users why they can't use the flash uploader and to upgrade if they want to.
