pure PHP upload progress bar
Posted on 2006-04-27
i'm having a hard time finding any kind of upload progress bar that will work in my case.
every example i see requires installing a patch, etc. etc. on the server.
well, my site is hosted on godaddy.com so i don't believe there is a whole lot of control that i have over this.
the biggest problem seems to be... i don't know how to retrieve the amount uploaded during the upload.
i could start with an iframe as an upload forms target. a <div> to display progress. and hopefully be able to send requests to a php file that can get the uploaded amount and then send a response.
am i asking for the impossible? these sample scripts seem to be a nuisance for my particular situation.
