Error When uploading multiple files in MOSS

Filed under: SharePoint — slingeronline @ 8:39 am

Well this has happened to me a few times now, and it’s starting to become a nuisance.  I know how to resolve the problem once it happens, but I do not know how to prevent it from happening in the first place.  A user will attempt to upload multiple files.  Everything seems to go along great, and then they get an error message.  “Cannot run the SharePoint Server Extensions on this page: http://SERVERNAME/_layouts/Upload.aspx. ”

Well I did a bunch or research, and here it is.  Something has edited the upload.aspx file and rendered it useless.  Fortunately I have a development server that I can use.  I copied the upload.aspx file from the Layouts directory in our development server and simply copied it over to our production server.  I tested it, and it worked great.  The problem is, this is now the 4th or 5th time this has happened.  The Microsoft kb article on this is here. The problem is, I didn’t edit upload.aspx.  I typically don’t touch certain files and if I can avoid it, I don’t log into our MOSS server and would prefer to work with SPD from my desktop as opposed to directly in the server.  I would really like to know how to prevent this from occurring, but in the meantime, keep a copy of upload.aspx handy.  It’s important to keep around.  If you ever run into this problem, just go ahead and replace that file and do an IISreset and you should be golden. 



  1. Hello,

    If you can please send me a copy of upload.aspx. I can’t find an no-corrupted copy…

  2. Hi there.

    I have the same problem as Veronica. I wonder if it was possible that you could also send me a non-corrupted copy of the upload.aspx file? That’s if you were able to send Veronica a copy?
