What is it?
SoftArtisans FileUp for Windows is a server-side file transfer tool. FileUp
processes a file a visitor to your site selects from their local computer and
uploads the file to a location in your web site that you select.
Depending upon the Windows platform you are on, we may have either ASP Upload
installed or Soft Artisans FileUp. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org to
confirm which upload component we support on your platform.
You will need the following:
Hosted on a server that supports SoftArtisans
An HTML or text editor
An FTP client
Official Web Site (www.softartisans.com)

*Note this is only a sample html page! Your page may be much more stylized.
Simply use this as a starting point and customize your page to your needs.
Step 3: Edit the form to match your preferences and variables and save your
new HTML page. For this example, we have saved this page as form.html.
Step 4: Copy the ASP code below and paste it into a new document in your editor.
*Note this is only a sample! Your form may be much more complex. Simply use
this as a starting point and customize your form to your needs.
<FORM METHOD="POST" ENCTYPE="multipart/form-data" ACTION="UploadScript.asp">
<INPUT TYPE="FILE" SIZE="40" NAME="FILE">
<INPUT TYPE=SUBMIT VALUE="Upload!">
Set upl = Server.CreateObject("SoftArtisans.FileUp")
upl.path = Server.Mappath("/upload")
Total Bytes Written: <%=upl.TotalBytes%>
<% set upl = nothing %>
Step 5: Edit the ASP and save you new ASP page. For this example, the ASP
page was saved as UploadScript.asp.
The ASP script will collect whatever file that the visitor to the form.html
page specifies and will upload it to the /upload* directory of the www.yourdomain.com
*Note: You will need to contact email@example.com so
that we can set the correct permissions on the directory that you are uploading

If it executes correctly, it will display the following if successfully uploaded:
