known but intercepted issues

- Safari browsers on Windows platforms are not able to upload multiple files at once – SFS turns multiple upload support for Safari browsers on Windows platforms automatically off – single uploads works although
- Drag and Drop functionality doesn’t work on Internet Explorer Versions smaller as 10.0 (incl. MSIE10.0 with compatibility mode = MSIE7.0) – SFS just displays another message without the drag and drop information on upload page

Config Hints

you can set various values in the configuration files, some of these:
- delDays -> number of days until the file will be deleted automatially after upload or depending on last download
- extDenied -> list of lowercase extension which users are not allowed to upload
- extAllowed -> list of lowercase extension which users are allowed to upload, only these are allowed (except the extDenied ones)
- maxFileSize -> maximum size of uploaded files, but attention the value might be decreased, ‘cause it will be recalculated based on the php values post_max_size, upload_max_filesize – if you’re running PHP with the FastCGI Server Api you’ve to adapt the FcgidMaxRequestLen (more Information here)
