Hello,
If you are going to use the hosting account to develop ColdFusion Scripts, you'll not get far. They don't allow the use of cffile, cfdirectory or any other coldfusion tags. You can't even use custom cfc's so editors like the FckEditor and others will not run..

If you are going to run very simple scripts such as a blog or something, then the uptime is rather good but just don't expect much if your going to try and run any advanced scripts or coding..

This is all assuming you're on the $3.95 per month plan with the $1.95 per month coldfusion addon.

I am having problems with GoDaddy CFFILE upload. However, they are still working on the issue. They say it's my script, I say it's their server. And now they will investigate. But if I am wrong, they will charge me a custom support fee. The issue they are having is described as Macromedia isssue 53397.

i have having the same issues with godaddy hosting ... i even provided them with the macromedia/adobe article and they still come back with the same response.

"Then, you will need to use PHP to move the data from /tmp/ to a directory you can access.

Unfortunately, we do not provide coding or scripting support through this forum. I recommend performing a search on a search engine such as Google.com. I apologize for any inconvenience this may cause."

The hosting isnt bad for the most part, as my sites are pretty simple and dont require much to run them

If anyone has any suggestions, they would be much appreciated.

Thnx!

Hi,

Dont worry too much, they can fix the problem - they did it for me.

I signed up for coldfusion hosting with godaddy about 2 months ago and for the most part they have been fine.

I had the same problem with CFFILE but I explained the problem and what the solution was and they fixed it for me pretty quickly:

This is the email I sent them when they asked what the problem was:

"The URL is http://.../.../getitemedited.cfm. This is within my administration area and the location or the URL is probably irrelevant as to the solution I need. I will explain:

The problem is most definitely the Coldfusion server denying me access to C:\CFusionMXuntime\servers\default\SERVER-INF\temp\wwwroot-tmp when I use the CFFILE tag to perform action=”upload” within the tag.

You need to allow me access to this location for temporary files to be held when using CFFILE and action=”upload”.

Please advise as to the solution as soon as possible as when I signed up for the godaddy hosting package it made no mention of any restriction when using the CFFILE tag. In fact the CFFILE tag works fine with action=”write”. If restrictions with this do exist I will have no option but to cancel the account as this is a key feature for administering my site (which is a shop with product images). I would expect a full refund if this is the case."


Try this solution and let me know how you get on.

menuboy, thnx for the reply!

I actually tried basically the same thing, my issue that I am having is that I can use <CFFILE> to upload files, however the only directory I apparently have access to to upload is /tmp  

The problem is getting the file from the /tmp directory to a directory that I actually have access to.

When I pointed out the issue to them, and even linked them to the article that describes the problem and solution, you saw the response I received.

I have searched everywhere looking for an answer to this and unfortunately to this point have come up empty

I am starting to aggrevated with them .. I realize that it is very cheap hosting, but the lack of support for services they offer isnt worth the price savings

here is what I am using to upload the file

<cffile action="upload" filefield="InputBox" destination="/tmp/" nameconflict="error">


I know that this part is working because if I try to upload the same file it tells me that I can not overwrite which I knew.

Here is what I tried to use

<cffile action="upload" filefield="InputBox" destination="/uploads/" nameconflict="error">

and I receive this error

Security: The requested template has been denied access to /uploads.
The following is the internal exception message: access denied (java.io.FilePermission /uploads read)

I have permissions set to 777 on this particular folder, at this point I am completely lost.  All of the documentation I have read suggests that the 2nd code should work, but it isnt.

thnx!

Hi - have you tried just to upload to tmp (which you know is successful) and then do a cffile action="move" and move the file you just uploaded over to the folder you want it in ??? you might get the same error, but maybe not

just a thought, megan
