The attachments management screen has two buttons; "Upload" and "Change Properties".

If you click "manage" in the attachments table, you get a screen with an empty file path. if you then click "Add link" or "Hide file" and click "Upload" by mistake, then you get a stack dump.

You do? I get the message Either you did not specify a file name, or the file you are trying to upload "" has no content. You may not upload an empty file.

It is trivial to reproduce in this topic.

  1. Click "manage" for the attachment "afa.mid" in the attachments table
  2. Click "Upload file"


See also Item5133, which has the same stack trace.

-- TWiki:Main.CrawfordCurrie - 15 Dec 2007

Fixed by wrapping an exception handler around the tmpFileName call.
