Perl connectors IO timeout errors

Reported by: Jigs Owned by:

I have been trying for weeks to get the Perl connectors working correctly in FCKEditor. I have followed all available documentation.

Description of Problem: Using the quick upload (Click Image Icon, Upload Tab, Send to Server) using version 2.6.3 will successfully upload an image to the directory specified in $img_dir ( However, the Dialog box with progress indicator hangs and a response that the upload is finished never returns to the browser. My error logs show that the connectors "are not producing valid headers (read failed, error is IO timeout error)"

I have changed the $GLOBALS{'UserFilesPath'} to every path I can think of and CHMOD 777 them, but no matter what I specify there, the path is completely ignored and the file is uploaded to the $img_dir as specified in

Also, I agree with a previous ticket: 1259 that the connector is very insecure to take the Form parameter as trusted $GLOBALS{'UserFilesPath'} = $FORM{'ServerPath'};

Is this a case where Perl is on the backburner while PHP receives all the updates? Or am I just not configuring it correctly?

You can see in that the Perl integration is lacking behind other connectors. Someone that uses Perl needs to step up as a maintainer that keeps up with the rest of the code.

It is enough to say that Perl programs in FCKeditor do not start with "use strict;". They look like they are written in Perl 5 and they do not use any CGI module - they do parameter handling themselfs.

See for a small attempt to make better Perl programs.

Perl connector was only available in FCKeditor which is no longer supported.
