I’m writing a wordpress plugin that maintains a database for a small local business. It’s nothing special, but as part of the plugin, the user (who will be logged in as an admin) needs to upload a file for me to parse.
This user is just barely compter savvy enough to enter things into a form on a web page. I can teach her how to use filezilla, but I’d rather not have to. Instead, I want her to browse to the file to upload, and click “Import” (or whatever). I have tried several renditions of PHP code (both within my plugin and in other plugins) that should do things like this, and they all result in no file being uploaded.
Is there something that DreamHost does to prevent a file upload by a user? If so, is there a way around it?
