Missing File Upload From $_POST data

    I have a form with a file upload that goes to a custom thank you page where I read the post variables to save.  For some reason I am no longer getting the file name in the post vars but the form is still working.  ie. i can see the file in the submissions tab.  it's just not in the post variables anymore.  Any idea how to fix this?

    Can you post here the PHP code you are using to capture the file upload field data from your form? So far I only see 1 form on your account and upon checking it further, this should supposed to be the PHP code for that upload field.


    We'll wait your updates. Thanks!

    This is for a self hosted form:

    <?php print_r($_POST); ?>

    It was working then it disapeared somewhere along the line.  I created a new form on our instance and it works as well as other existing ones, it's just not working in this form.
