ASP and uploading images
Posted on 2000-04-06
I need to allow users a way to upload small images to a web. I have looked at a couple of packages (free as well as for purchase), but they all seem to require .dll files to be installed on the server.
Since this site is hosted commercially I have no idea how I could ever get the software to work on the server.
For instance ASPSmartUpload says to do the following:
You have to register aspSmartUpload.dll on your server. The dll can be registered by using either Regsvr32.exe OR Microsoft Transaction Server (MTS).
1st Solution: Using RegSVR32
Copy aspSmartUpload.dll into a directory on the NT server (e.g. c:\mydir).
Save the component using the commands :
REGSVR32.EXE c:\mydir\aspSmartUpload.dll (From DOS or the Start/Run prompt)
2nd Solution: Using Transaction Server
Select the NT server on which you wish to install aspSmartUpload.
Create a new batch.
In the component folder, create a new component called aspSmartUpload.
Paste aspSmartUpload.dll to the Transaction Server to save it.
Basically the user will enter a file name in a form text box, and click the upload button. I need something server side.
