File Upload does not work?

when trying to upload a file, the status wheel turns forever. Uploaded file is not stored.

This happens, if a javascript error occurse. You can only debug such a problem by using firebug or comparable developer tools. The MimeType of uploaded files is checked by default using the libmagic. Please make sure that:

  • the fileinfo extention exists. On FreeBSD, this extension has to be installed. On Linux, this extention is normally included by default. Check it by: php -m | grep fileinfo
  • Make sure, your Webserver can access /usr/share/misc/magic*. These files are referenced by YAWIK/vendor/zendframework/zend-validator/src/File/MimeType.php
  • make sure the access is not restricted by an open_basedir setting
