Uploading Files To The Web Server!


I'm using the uploadbean servlets downloaded from

In the upload form, I'm able to direct my upload files to the folder that I
wanted by modifying the path in this line :

<jsp:setProperty name="upBean" property="folderstore" value="c:/uploads"/>

I have no problem doing this under Windows environment in my pc (localhost).
With this, all my files will be uploaded to uploads folder in my c:

And I have change my path to

"/home/screen/public_html/uploads" in order to get my files from the upload
form to uploads folder inside public_html. (Linux Hosting Environment)

And then, I also have chmod the uploads folder to 0777. However when I try to run it, it doesn't upload my file into the server. The error command is java.lang.Exception: No such file or directory.

Is there anything else I left out? Any help is appreciated.

Thank you.

Is this the same problem as this: http://www.experts-exchange.com/Web/Web_Languages/JSP/Q_21128326.html ?  

I think you're going to have to get in touch with your hosting company, and get the proper path off them...

(and I'd triple check the jsp:setProperty to make sure it is right -- just to be safe) ;-)


Could you login to unix system and type this command?

$cd /home/screen/public_html/uploads

Does it be able to change to that directory?

I need to use telnet but I do not have access to the web server right now. However I'm asking for it access already. Will come back to u straight after I tried it!

Yes TimYates is the same problem. I've been trying with the path that I got from their support page.

And then tried it out. It didnt work actually but then I know it is because of the permission access problem. I've then chmod the uploads folder to 0777. But then it show me another error which is error command is java.lang.Exception: No such file or directory. I'm now trying on other alternatives like using jspsmart. But anyway, I still hope that this one works because this is the onli upload function that comes with a status bar!

Yeah I'm trying to get in touch with the hosting company. Thanks ya for helping me out!
> java.lang.Exception: No such file or directory

Are you writing straight into the folder (not inside other nested folders)?

Have you tried putting a trailing slash on the path?

<jsp:setProperty name="upBean" property="folderstore" value="/home/screen/public_html/uploads/"/>

I have left this question for a long time. Does anyone has a simple example on file upload? UploadBean doesnt seems to work!
Did you ever get in touch with the hosting company?
UploadBean does work, but you need to know the directory it can write into...
