Support » Plugin: Work The Flow File Upload » Big problem with uploading

  • Hi
    The plugin seems to intermittently kill the computer’s connection with the WP site on uploading. It doesn’t seem to crash the site – it crashes just the computer’ ability to wok and access the site of about 10 minutes. At fist I thought this was happening for only larger uploads (250KB) but it now seems to happen with all size files. If I leave the web page alone, the file will successfully upload, but I can’t work with a plugin that behaves like this.

    I’m not sure why you think the plugin is causing this.

    You should first suspect the web server time out settings as this if the usual cause for lost connections during long uploads.

    If you still believe there is an issue with the plugin please supply more detail about what occurs and steps to reproduce the problem.

    Thanks for responding!
    Here’s the feedback from the inspector:

    NotFoundError: DOM Exception 8: An attempt was made to reference a Node in a context where it does not exist.
    (anonymous function)wtf-fu-workflow.js:31
    (anonymous function)wtf-fu-workflow.js:87

    When I switched themes I received this error on the front-end

    Error true

    And in the inspector, there was an additional error

    Failed to load resource: The request timed out.

    Have you checked the server timeout settings in particular the php setting
    max_execution_time = xxx can be a problem if not set long enough for the process to complete.

    Sorry but that is all I can suggest without explicit details on how to recreate the problem. You will need to be precise and include circumstances when it fails and when it succeeds.

    I think php timeout is still the most likely cause though.
