Error thrown when uploading assets

See original GitHub issue


I have successfully deployed the app to my server, and many thanks to the great work from you. However, after the upload process completed, server will throw error as followed and failed to save/serve the uploaded file:

Sending 500 ("Server Error") response:
 Error: ENOENT: no such file or directory, open ''

I have tried updated the dirname in local.js and ensured that directory has correct permission for user (in fact, I even tried 0777), but still no luck on this.

It seems the file is not getting stored anywhere, could you please help with this issue and provide more information about the assets storage progress?

Many thanks to you!

I have to say that neither @oozliuoo solution nor @nellyLidanYang solution worked for me, but a combination of both methods.

Just in case someone is in the same situation as me, this is what I did:

  1. Changes made to config/local.js:
    • I made a combination of both solutions: Renaming the key dirname to __dirname and setting the location of the dir to be ./.
  files: {
    // Folder must exist and user running the server must have adequate perms
    __dirname: './',
    // Maximum allowed file size in bytes
    // Defaults to 500MB
    // maxBytes: 524288000
  1. Changes made to api/controllers/AssetController.js:
  • The solution provided by @oozliuoo works, but just only for uploading files to the server. Manually downloading files, with this config/mods, will not work (I did not try apps’ updates though, so I don’t know if it works). Modification of .getHash() calls to add the temp folder.
if (fileExt === '.nupkg') {
    // Calculate the hash of the file, as it is necessary for windows
    // files
    hashPromise = AssetService.getHash(`.tmp/uploads/${uploadedFile.fd}`);
} else if (fileExt === '.exe' || fileExt === '.zip') {
    hashPromise = AssetService.getHash(`.tmp/uploads/${uploadedFile.fd}`, 'sha256');
} else {
    hashPromise = Promise.resolve('');
  • Second, to allow users to manually download files, I made a small modification bellow that previous code. Changes to fd attr to be similar to the previous change.
    .then(function(fileHash) {
        // Create new instance of model using data from params
              name: uploadedFile.filename,
              hash: fileHash,
              filetype: fileExt,
              fd: `.tmp/uploads/${uploadedFile.fd}`,
              size: uploadedFile.size
   }, data))

try set"dirname" to __dirname. I fixed mine with that
