good day to all the pros here at experts exchange!

i'm having trouble uploading files (like pictures, etc.) into the server. right now i'm using iis (5.1? not sure what version but it is the one on win xp pro) and mysql as my server. i'm also using dreamweaver mx 2004.

i got a main.asp file which contains a file field (you know the one inside a form tag with the "browse" button following a text field) and points to a process.asp file and outputs the result to output.asp whether success or not and the details (file size, name and dimensions), is it possible?

the problem is like in forums, where you can upload your avatar, for example, limiting the size by 60kb and the dimension 60x60 also limiting the file types by just jpeg, jpg and gif? what are the codes i must write to my process.asp file, or i can already verify it on the client-side?

thanks guys! ^_^

Hi Justin,

You can do some verification on the client side but it is not recommended, mainly because client side scripting is not designed for that purpouse and at the very least your users will get security warning messages.

You can do it easily on the server side. The following links should help you get it together in no time:

- An Insider View of Uploading Files using ASP (include code to limit size of upload)

- More on size limiting

Best regards,

Esopo.
