Uploading to another server

by David Richardson, July 9, 2007 17:05

I have a bit of a problem and I don't know what the elegant answer is.

I have a three server setup (luxurious I know!) with one master and two slaves. The slaves are load-balanced so people could be accessing either one and not know the difference. Now I allow people to upload files through a form on the front end, but those files need to go through an editorial process before they're made available.

What I want to do is upload the file onto the master server, so that when the workflow emails go out the file can be easily tracked. If I allow the file to be uploaded on one of the slave servers I don't know which one it's on.

Is there an easy way around this?

I have thought about implementing an FTP programme immediately after upload, but I'm worried if the file is large then the page could time out with two long operations (or the user gets bored and closes the browser half way through)

Any ideas?
