If you really want to get help, publish your code.

I don't think that's true. I should be able to ask a technical question with observations and inquire as to "What's wrong?" After all, what's the point of showing code that works on two servers, but fails on a third? Really, what is that going to tell you?

As for the uploaded file exceeding "max file size" and "file_uploads" enabled, those are obvious and I did that investigation before I posted the question. They are NOT the problem.

I also checked all the servers involved for "safe_mode" and "open_basedir" settings and they are set the same. Additionally, the "upload_max_filesize" and "upload_tmp_dir" are also set exactly the same. As such, I don't know what else to look for -- hence my question.

As I said, the script works on two servers, but fails on a third.

This is what I've learned in addition to the above:

The script does successfully upload the file to the server in question. For example, I receive "truth" from:


I can even get the contents of the uploaded file by:

$contents = file_get_contents($_FILES['userfile']['tmp_name']);

-- and the contents are displayed.

So, the file is indeed uploaded!

What I cannot do is move the file to another location using:

$result = move_uploaded_file($_FILES['userfile']['tmp_name'], $path . '/' . $_FILES['userfile']['name']);

(Yes, all possible file paths have been investigated)

Nor, can I copy the file by:

$result = copy($_FILES['userfile']['tmp_name'], $path . '/' . $_FILES['userfile']['name']);

The only difference I see is the server causing problems is Windows NT whereas the others are Linux.

So, knowing this  -- does anyone have any idea as to what is wrong?
