HTTP Web Server: File Upload Not Allowed Exception


Appends when file upload is disabled by Domino server.

Add DominoDisableFileUploadChecks=1 in Notes.ini file.
This activates the uploading to a Domino server.


This error might also occur if the file upload control has "Pass-Thru HTML" in effect.

Use in computed subforms may also cause the problem (R6)

Throws this error when database is deployed onto SOLARIS box. Works perfetcly fine on a Windows box. No solution found yet?

If you place file upload controls on form A and the form submits to form B, and form B doesn't have the file upload controls, you will also get this error.

You should place the file upload controls on form B, view the source of form B to find the HTML that Domino generates for the input type=file, and then place that HTML in form A.

In ComputedForDisplay field I have this formula:

Extention := @UpperCase( @Right( @Subset( @AttachmentNames; 1 ); 4 ) );

TableStart := "<table><tr>";

TableEnd := "</tr></table>";

@If( @AttachmentNames != ""; TableStart + "<tr class=\"studentrecordd\"><td><img border=\"1\" src=" + "/" + @WebDbName + "/" + @Text( @DocumentUniqueID ) + "/$FILE/" + @Replace( @AttachmentNames; ";"; "-" ) + " align=\"top\"></td></tr><tr><td class=\"studentrecordd\">" + @AttachmentNames + "</td></tr>" + TableEnd; "" )

When I changed those 2 lines:

TableStart := "<table><tr>";

TableEnd := "</tr></table>";


TableStart := "[<table><tr>";

TableEnd := "</tr></table>]";

(Passthrough HTML) this error occured.

On the From Properties, under Conflict Handling:

Do not select "Do Not Create Conflicts". When I changed this back to the default "Create Conflicts," the error went away.

On the Database Properties

do not select "Use JavaScript when generating pages". But it in my case.
