This feature is an alternative way to upload files instead of FTP.
This feature is useful when you have an incompatible FTP server or just want to upload a video to a couple of server locations without opening another Willing Webcam instance. Enable the FTP and HTTP upload features at the same time to upload video to multiple server locations or even to multiple servers.
You have to upload the wwsubmit.php
script file from the '\Program Files\Willing Webcam\Web Pages\HTTP Upload\PHP' directory to your web site. Most web hosting services have a PHP engine. Fill the IP Address
field with URL of this script.
When you select the Enable checkbox or click the Submit button it will initiate http upload to your web site. There you must have your webpage with a link to the webcam image.
Note: You might be concerned about using this feature due to possible upload attacks:
