    Using the PUT method to upload a file

    Hi, I am considering to use PUT for the upload page on my website,
    bevause it allows me to upload file kb by kb, hence allows me to display the upload progress without recompiling PHP, or using cgi.
    The only problem is that i want to make my site accessible by most browsers,
    and the manual says that, the PUT method is only supported by Netscape, and W3C Amaya browsers.

    That means that my page would not function for a client using IE, or Mozilla?

    Most solutions would require a AJAX type of implementation. There are a lot of free products available if you search.

    Which while being much more accessible, would still leave out those users who have JavaScript disabled or otherwise unavailable. Depending on whose statistics you want to believe, that will probably be some single-digit percentage of users. (I've seen numbers from as low as 3% to as high as 10%.)

    I thought you answered that yourself in your very first post?
