I have a problem that is occuring in a production environment but the problem does not occur in a development and test environment.  The problem in production happens when uploading a file.  The error is:

HTTP Status 500 -

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Apache Tomcat/4.1.29-LE-jdk14

The JSP code used to upload the file is:

boolean bIsMultipart = FileUpload.isMultipartContent(request);
if (bIsMultipart) {
      DiskFileUpload upload = new DiskFileUpload();

      // Parse the request
      java.util.List /* FileItem */ items = upload.parseRequest(request);
      psCollection formFields = new psCollection();

      Iterator iter = items.iterator();

      while (iter.hasNext() && !bErrorFlag) {
            boolean bFileExists = false;
            FileItem item = (FileItem) iter.next();
            if (item.isFormField()) {
                  //first get the all the data entered.  Process the data after the while loop
                  formFields.add(new String(item.getString()), new String(item.getFieldName()));
            } else {
                  sName = item.getFieldName();
                  sFileName = item.getName().substring(item.getName().lastIndexOf("\\") + 1);
                  sContentType = item.getContentType();
                  bInMemory = item.isInMemory();
                  lSizeInBytes = item.getSize();
                 
                  // Process the file upload in memory
                  try {
                        data = item.get();
                  } catch (Exception e) {
                        bErrorFlag = true;
                        sDisplayMessage = "We were unable to access the uploaded file.";
                        logger.debug("unable to get the data from the file.");
                  }



The main difference between the development/test environment and the production environment is that the development/test environment have Apache and Tomcat on the same server while the production environment has one server running Apache and another server running Tomcat.

Create a folder name 'temp' in beside of bin and webapp. Then start the tomcat and test uploading file.

As FarzadA said, you need to create a temp directory for Tomcat to use. You also need to make sure Tomcat is configured appropriately to use the temp directory that you created ($CATALINA_TMPDIR variable). Finally, this temp directory needs the appropriate permissions to allow the Tomcat service to write to the directory.
