ok, I'm passing the user's path to a file they want to upload to
a php page in the url, and I can't get my upload function to actually upload the file.

Is this way possible? or am I stuck using the standard upload form and having to send it to a php page with post?

Ajax can not upload files. If you look at Ajax solutions for uploading, you post a form to a hiden iframe and handle it that way.

yea I googled it and found out .

So I know that it is immpossible to just use strictly ajax to upload a file, but why?

is it because the upload steps in php make a temporary copy of the file on the server?

or what?

Thanks for the info,
