View Full Version : Image Upload issue - IE9 cannot work

June 28, 2012, 11:34 PM
I have checked on the following test cases on both my websites and the demo website on flynax

Test sites
- My own website
- Flynax demo site

My website is running on a VPS
The php.ini setting for size upload, time etc. has been maximised so it cannot be my setting on max size upload etc.

Image to upload : 30k

Environment Testing

IE9 in Win7 : failed
IE8 in WinXP: ok
FF 10 - 13 in Win7/XP : ok
Safari 5.0.5 (windows) in WinXP : ok
Chrome in WinXP: ok

I am sure whether I am the only facing, hope others can try as well and reply here if you faced this problem

This is probably not the same, but I consider it similar.

I found that the loading of the page that uploads photos is very slow.

I wonder if this is a javascript issue - only tested in IE thus far and the wait time is between 30 seconds to a minute for anything to show on the page.

I think this sort of issue want stand the 4 second rule for people being convinced a website is effective.

Any suggestions?

What is the size of the image?

What is your server setting for attachment upload? php.ini limit etc. as sometimes that plays a factor

Interestingly I changed the max_upload_size to as low as 1M and it still has a delay. Increased the memory also and it made no difference.

More and more I am thinking the javascript is too much to load, but then again I may have no idea what I am talking about.

If I was you, I'll check with my host and see if they have some restrictions regarding bandwidth or can it be so, if you compare to another site (You can test mine) that your internet connection is slow?

I am very confident that the internet connection is not the issue, should be more than capable of running the scripts.

I have looked a little further and decided to try another hosting company - in the process of setting up VPS with HostForWeb - recommended by Flynax, so hopefully won't have an issue.

OK, hope it will work out for you. I had to change my host as well, when starting with 4.0. I'm now on SiteGround (http://www.siteground.com/index.htm?referrerid=6919379) which works very good with excellent service I must say.

Hello Folks,
I just want to assure you that in case when all necessary PHP options match the requirements
the upload function work properly and fast. Here the details: http://www.flynax.com/forum/showthread.php?361-Cant-upload-images-to-existing-listing-via-Admin-Panel&p=1217&viewfull=1#post1217
