I'm getting through the forum and posted messages but can't find the answer.
Could you please help me with the following problem :

Submission - New Submission - Step 3: Uploading the submission ---
uploading documents through the submission function fails with error message : "No submission file uploaded". No other error messages.
The system assigns an internal I.D. to the document and a status "Incomplete", but the file isn't actually uploaded.

The created directory to store uploaded files is
rights on the directory and sub-directories are (after : chmod 777 -R ./) :
sub-directories are :
- journals (Files Browser coud be created in the sub-directory "1" of "journals"
- site

Mangement pages - Setup - Details - 1.5 Publisher -- URL

Could you help me please ?
Thank you in advance,

Hi ET,

Check your PHP configuration to ensure that file_uploads is enabled, upload_max_filesize and post_max_size are set to reasonable limits, and upload_tmp_dir is valid. Additionally, there is sometimes a maximum POST request limit in the web server configuration that might be restricting file uploads.
