Can't upload file

After uploading disc images of January through September for https://macintoshgarden.org/apps/apple-developer-connection-2008 I get an error trying to upload October.

macintoshgarden.org says

An HTTP error 0 occured.
/filefield/ahah/app/field_file/10

https://macintoshgarden.org/node/14953/edit

I have restarted my computer, restarted my router, and restarted my computer again for the past three days.

Do you click the upload button for the file you've selected, or select the file, scroll to the bottom and hit save?

The upload button seems to differ from how the save function works for some reason.

Can you force your browser into HTTP, not HTTPS?
Some here did run into a similar random error and HTTP seemed to solve that.
Thanks for staying on track with our uploads btw. MacDrive for example, did cause some waves in our little pond. Smile

I've sometimes found that Safari has issues uploading files, but Firefox or Chrome work better, especially when using the workaround to change https to http in the address bar.

The only way I can upload large (i.e. CD sized) files is to use Chrome with a non-secure setting that forces http rather than https. Other browsers are OK for small files.

For the first 9 files I uploaded I was using Chrome with Windows 10. When I try to use non-secure it changes to secure. I first click the upload button and when that finishes I click save.

Just a suggestion as a workaround until you can figure out what might be causing the issue: I think the Garden also may have an FTP upload option (although my memory fails me as to whether that was a now obsolete or experimental new option), but that would then entail getting the FTP'd stuff moved over to the target software app page afterward with the help of an admin.

Sorry it's been giving you trouble like that Sad most of my uploads have been tiny little things, so kudos for all the solid upload heavy-lifting on your end!

--->changes to secure<--

Did you do the following ?

Go to chrome://net-internals/#hsts. Enter macintoshgarden.org under "Delete domain security policies" and press the Delete button.


This should prevent a change to "secure". It does for me, although every now and then I have to reapply the security policy

What you could also try, is select the file, skip clicking upload, scroll the way to the bottom and instead click Save. The form should process the file upload, and it will take a while for larger uploads just like it does when clicking upload.

It's a tough bug to track down since that error message in itself is related to a whole set of modules and code spanning from the miniscule functions to the very large. Pinpointing and fixing that thing has been one of the things that's been ongoing for a while now.

If any of the other options don't sort the issue for you, let me know and we can try work some other solution out.

The ZIP file was damaged. I noticed this when I tried to copy it to a network drive. I recreated the ZIP file and it is now uploaded.
