Idea upload file name extension is case sensative and creates duplicate file names

8 years 10 months ago #1 by omri

I've encountered a strange problem. I'll try to explain with an example...

I first upload a file '2.jpg' (lower case extension).

Second, I upload a file '2.JPG' (upper case extension)

Now, Kunena or joomla see these files as different file names, so the file name doesn't being changed and I have on the server duplicate file name with only the extension as upper case.

I'm not sure, but I guess this work fine on the forum itself and the correct image is presented.

The problem starts when I want to backup my site. Akeeba save those two files with the case sensitive difference, but when I try to restore or just extract the archive I get a warning on the same file name.

Any suggestion would be really appreciated.

It's not a Kunena problem and, strictly-speaking, it's not a Joomla problem, either. This is how Unix file servers work. So it's actually more of an Apache issue than anything else.
