Hi! I think this is only supported by Firefox 3, but I'm not certain. Anyway, you can try by either adding this to your PHP file:

<?php
// Change this to allow <yourdomain.com> to make it accessible to your site, or allow <*> for ANYONE to be able to access it.
header('Access-Control: allow <yourdomain.com>');
?>

Open in new window


... Or by creating an XML file with the following:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<!-- Change this to allow="yourdomain.com" to make it accessible to your site, or allow="*" for ANYONE to be able to access it. -->
<?access-control allow="yourdomain.com"?>

Open in new window


A .htaccess file might work also.

Hope this helps.

The upload form in server1 and you want to send you file in another one?
On server 1 your form should simply have action="server2/path/file.php"

With the plugin the easiest thing is to put it on the second server, then call it from the first, depending on how you show the file upload form.

Thanks for the quick reply.

$(function () {
    $('#file_upload').fileUploadUI({
        uploadTable: $('#files'),
        downloadTable: $('#files'),
        buildUploadRow: function (files, index) {
            return $('<tr><td>' + files[index].name + '<\/td>' +
                    '<td class="file_upload_progress"><div><\/div><\/td>' +
					'<td class="file_upload_start">' +
					'<button class="ui-state-default ui-corner-all" title="Start Upload">' +
					'<span class="ui-icon ui-icon-circle-arrow-e">Start Upload<\/span>' +
					'<\/button><\/td>' +
                    '<td class="file_upload_cancel">' +
                    '<button class="ui-state-default ui-corner-all" title="Cancel">' +
                    '<span class="ui-icon ui-icon-cancel">Cancel<\/span>' +
                    '<\/button><\/td><\/tr>');
        },
        buildDownloadRow: function (file) {
            return $('<tr class="ui-state-highlight ui-corner-all"><td>' + file.name + '<\/td>' + 
			'<td>' + file.message1 + file.message2 + file.message3 + '<\/td><\/tr>');
        },
		beforeSend: function (event, files, index, xhr, handler, callBack) {
			handler.uploadRow.find('.file_upload_start button').click(callBack);
		}

    });
});
]

Open in new window


<form id="file_upload" action="upload.php" method="POST" enctype="multipart/form-data">  
<input type="hidden" name="MAX_FILE_SIZE" value="1638400000" /><input type="file" name="file" multiple><button id="start_uploads">Start uploads</button>
</form>


thats my upload form and upload file is handling using upload.php


so if i want to upload file to another server, should i put upload.php on second server and call it from 1st server?
