Trying to uplaod files from Unix Host to using curl script


Can anyone help me in correcting the below mentioned code:

curl --verbose --verbose --form myfile=@upload08102010.txt --form submit=Upload --user username:password --proxy

While running the above code, I am able to login to the server, but not able to Upload the file.

Can anyone please help me in the above issue.

Please find the message after running the script:

<style>input {display: block; margin-top: 1em;}</style>
<div style="width: 650px; margin: 2em auto; padding: 2em; border: 1px solid #ccc">
<h1>Upload a file</h1>
<p>Uploaded files must be smaller than 2GB. Please compress or
split files larger than 2GB. For specific instructions, please see

<form action="upload_handler" method="POST" enctype="multipart/form-data">
<input type="file" name="myfile">
<input type="submit" name="submit" value="Upload">
No files have been uploaded to this account.

Did you try it without the proxy?

I tried it with proxy....

try without the proxy

If I try without Proxy.... It will not allow me to login to the server...


i assume the file you wanna upload is smaller than 2GB right?

Yes... First I want to test the script.. If it is working fine then i will use it for bulk upload

Confluence is apparently a Struts app which is where you usually get the *.action?stuff=otherstuff etc. etc. in the URL. The trick is probably to find the right action to call.
