ERROR: file name already exists
« on: May 03, 2002, 09:42:18 AM »
Q: I was trying to upload a song, got this message:

error file name already exists for aid#1373 as sid#5144

What does this mean?

A: It means that a file with the same name already exists in your directory.  Change the file name of the mp3 and upload it again.

If it was a song you had 'deleted' and are re-uploading, the deleted file is not removed from your directory for 7-30 days from the point of deletion for security and efficiency.

If you wish to use the same file-names, use the 'update file' feature instead of deleting and re-uploading.
