Error on form submission containing file input
Posted on 2006-04-06
The error "Corrupt form data: premature ending" appears in the cfserver.log when a form is submitted with a file (to be uploaded to the server) from a form using ENCTYPE="multipart/form-data" and the error occurs while using https and ONLY in IE. Firefox, Safari, etc. are not experiencing the problem. The user experiences either an immediate "500 Internal Server Error" response or a long lag before receiving the 500 error.
I've seen numerous posts about this issue in the Macromedia forums (via Google groups), but little on the cause or the solution. There was one very informative post about changing some IIS settings, but we are running Red Hat Linux and ColdFusion MX 7 (with up to date hotfixes). Perhaps someone out there has run into this problem or has a resource they can point me to.
Thanks in advance.
