This is probably a big ask but can anyone convert this PHP to ASP.  We only support ASP at the moment but this is a great HTTP Upload tool

Many thanks if it can be done.

    foreach ($_FILES as $name => $info) {
        /* chekc the file has a valid name */
        if (($info['name'] != 'ht.access' && 
            substr($info['name'], 0,1) != '.' && 
            $info['name'] != 'allowed_files')) {

            /* attempt to move the file to the uploaded_files directory */
            if (@move_uploaded_file($info['tmp_name'], "uploaded_files/files/{$info['name']}")) {
                /* get the contenst of the array of files */
                $file_arrays = @unserialize(@file_get_contents('uploaded_files/allowed_files'));        
                /* if there are more already 5 files, remove the oldest item fomr the array
                 * and delete it  
                if (count(@$file_arrays['files']) == 5) {
                    $name = array_shift($file_arrays['files']);
                    @unlink('uploaded_files/files/' . $name);

                /* add the new item to the arrays */
                $file_arrays['files'][] = $info['name'];
                $file_arrays['types'][$info['name']] = $info['type'];

                /* serialize the array and write it back to the file */
                if ($fhwnd = @fopen('uploaded_files/allowed_files', 'wb+')) {
                    fwrite($fhwnd, serialize($file_arrays));

You are better off not trying to convert this script.  The main reason is you can't really convert it.  In the case of uploading files ASP does not handle things like PHP, in fact ASP doesn't really provide an upload file function/component like PHP does.  I personally recommend and use ASPUpload which is a very popular third party component you can install on you ASP server.  There is some information on it and other option for ASP in http:Q_22065191.html.  We can certainly help you implement one of these on your site but I wouldn't try to start from the PHP script above.  The html from that page is the only thing that would "convert" easily.

Let me know if you have any questions or need more information.

look into the pure asp upload provided on that question b0lsc0tt provided - very easy to set up and use. =)

Your welcome.  I'm glad that I could help.  However is the C grade an accident or did you still need some help?  From your last comment it would seem to be an accident.  If you still have questions or need help then just let me know.  It is nice to have the chance to earn the A.
