Problem uploading pdf file ... any help?


#1

I uploaded a pdf file to DH, but can’t see it thro’ the browser. Say by doing www.example.com/mypdf.pdf, I don’t see the file mypdf.pdf (all I see is page not found page, what we get in case of an invalid URL). Can anyone tell me what are the possible reasons … for info, the pdf file size is 8.46 mb,if that’s an issue.

thanks a lot for your time.

Are you sure you uploaded it to the root directory of your site?

Also, check the case of your file name (and extension). MyPDF.PDF is considered a different file to mypdf.pdf

Thanks for your reply Mark. I just figured it out - basically, www.example.com/mypdf.pdf was not working, but when I tried www.example.com/mypdf - that worked perfectly.

thanks for your time once again.

Hmmm… That would indicate that the name of the file on the server was mypdf, not mypdf.pdf. Perhaps it was renamed inadvertently when you uploaded it.

Anyway, I am glad you now have it worked out.

No problem, you are more than welcome. :slight_smile:
