Known Issues

This plugin has all the known issues documented for SWFUpload See documentation.

This plugin is designed to work on PHP 5.3+. If you have an earler version of PHP, it should still work but, you may encounter issues with detecting the MIME type of the uploaded file. This depends on your server setup, as it should work fine if PHP is allowed to call the exec function. Check out the support site for further details and considerations.
