Description

Requirements:

1. Adobe Flash Player version 9.0.45 or higher is required.
2. eZ Publish 4.1 or higher is required for ezmultiupload extension due to enhancements implemented in eZSession class.

NOTE:
This extension can work with eZ Publish 4.0.x series, however uploading from administration interface is not supported, eZ Publish 4.1.1 or higher is officially supported version.

1. Extract the ezmultiupload archive to the extension folder.

2. Enable the extension in site.ini.append.php

 
[ExtensionSettings]
ActiveExtensions[]=ezmultiupload

Alternatively, activate it in the Administration Interface. First, click the Extensions
link in the Setup tab. Then, mark the checkbox corresponding to the
“ezmultiupload” entry and click the Apply changes button.

3. Grant access to the “ezmultiupload” module for the users and user groups who will
need to use the eZ Multiupload functionality.

[...]
ActiveExtensions[]=ezmultiupload
ActiveExtensions[]=ezwt
[...]
 
or

ActiveExtensions[]=ezmultiupload
ActiveExtensions[]=ezwebin

Uploader limitations related to Flash:

  • Because of Flash limitations, the uploader does not support basic authentication.
  • Because of Flash limitations, the uploader behavior when working through a proxy server is inconsistent and unreliable.
  • When uploading to HTTPS servers, be aware that Flash does not support self-signed certificates. You would need to obtain certificates from a recognized certificate authority.
