To upload files to the Web server, you do not have to use any server components to process the uploaded files.
The solution that is described in this article works for any Web server that can handle Distributed Authoring and Versioning (DAV). You use the Active Server Pages (ASP) script that follows only to parse user names and then to make sure that the files that you upload save in the correct user directory with a name that matches the user name.
If your server cannot handle ASP pages, you must modify the HTML that follows so that the target directory name is hardcoded. Then you need no ASP script.
Steps to Upload Files
IMPORTANT You must grant virtual directory /upload/users at least read/write permissions. When you configure a virtual directory to upload files, you can introduce a security hole because users can upload malicious files and then can run them.
If this virtual directory has execute permissions or if it has any App Mappings properties for scripts, you cannot upload executable files or scripts with mapped extensions. This is because the Head request that the browser uses fails.
