php script failing with converted word perfect file (converted to word doc)
Posted on 2008-10-21
For some reason my upload script is failing with a particular file, a Word Perfect file that was converted to a doc file (97-2003). It throws off the whole system for some reason. I wish I could attach it but the information is private. The only guess that I have is that somehow the metadata is bad. However, I looked at it in windows explorer and it everything looks fine. My guess is that it has something to do with this line:
//Attempt to move the uploaded file to it's new place
I opened the file in Word and then resaved it. After that, it worked fine. Is there some way to catch this? Has anyone ever experienced this before?
Thanks in advance for your help!
