( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
We are using Metadot and actually having a problem with it.

In October, we did a multiple upgrade -- to RH Enterprise, to Apache 2.0, to Plesk Reloaded control panel (from Ensim), to Persistent Perl, and to the latest version of Metadot. Something broke the file upload capability in the software.

In our investigation we suspect something going on with the handling of the POST of the form that does the upload. Seems that the server times out. The form does not appear to be malformed.

I am actually willing to retain a Perl guru to help us figure out what's going on, so if you're interested, email headguy (at) We also need someone to help develop and maintain the code in the long run.

Sorry if this is inappropriate in this forum. I'm a n00b here. But I would appreciate any pointers to info or people who can help. And, yes, I've posted on the Metadot forum to no avail.

Thanks for any ideas.

Mike Ellsworth
