File upload in rails

Follow the steps
Go to terminal and type
rails upload
cd upload
mkdir upload\public\data
ruby script/generate model DataFile

Then in data_file.rb
class DataFile < ActiveRecord::Base
name = upload['datafile'].original_filename
directory = "public/data"
# create the file path
path = File.join(directory, name)
# write the file, "wb") { |f| f.write(upload['datafile'].read) }

Then again in terminal
ruby script/generate controller Upload

class UploadController < ApplicationController
def index
render :file => 'app\views\upload\uploadfile.rhtml'
def uploadFile
post =[:upload])
render :text => "File has been uploaded successfully"


File Upload

<%= start_form_tag ({:action => 'uploadFile'},
:multipart => true) %>

<%= file_field 'upload', 'datafile' %>

<%= submit_tag "Upload" %>
<%= end_form_tag %>

Have you tested this code before posting......?????

he copied the code straight from the linked page. 'start_form_tag' is deprecated now. use 'form_tag'....

This worked for me when I took out the render command in the controller, and instead replaced it with a more standard respond_to do loop: " respond_to do |format|
format.html # index.html.erb
