Security blocking the Uploader!
Join to comment
Okay, I've been having some trouble with the uploader, and it's smack dab in the middle of MOCathalon season, so this is kind of urgent.

Every time I try to use the picture uploader, a message from Java comes up saying "Your security settings have blocked a self-signed application from being run." I tried using the simple uploader, but that just doesn't do anything at all, so that isn't any help.

As I have already stated, it is in the middle of MOCathalon season, so can somebody please a) get this fixed, or b) tell me how to fix it?

I've been having a similar problem. The way I have fixed is actually by using the simple uploader. It doesn't always work, but if you can click the link for the simple uploader right before the message comes up, or right after you close that first little window that pops up, it will work for you. But yeah, I don't know what the problem is.

I thought it was just my computer, but I haven't tried it on any other computer to find out. If it is happeneing to you, we may be in luck and it be an issue on MOCpages' side of things where they may be more easily fixed. I never had this issue until trying to upload February 27th.

There have been previous discussions on this topic, where i put a detailed explanation as to how to add a security exemption for mocpages to java. Sorry i'm on my ipad at the moment and can't add links. Please check the conversations for "uploader problems" the most recent should include the instructions.

Failing that, try googling for the error you are getting, a very detailed set of instructions can be found on bleeping computers.

Yeah the issue is definitely with java, the latest update does not recognise the authentication certificates for this website.

What you need to do is go to the java control panel on your computer, if you are using windows 7 or 8 just go to the search facility and type "java control panel" and click the link.

Then select security and there is a section to add exceptions. Click ADD and then type the FULL web address including the http:// at the beginning. Now click ok and when you come back here the uoloader should work.

You're the man, Andros.

Anyone else with this problem, copy the URL of the page that opens with the uploader and just paste it in. Simple fix.

Again, you're the man.

The reason I said to type the full address is because I couldn't cut and paste into the java console when I did this, so I had to type the address manually.

Not sure why, I assumed it was common to everyone.

Did you try highlighting it, Ctrl C and then Ctrl V in the area for the URL in java? Copy and Paste will always work that way.

You need to have the latest version of Java. https://www.java.com/en/download/

This is what I did:

(if you have Windows 7 or 8 I believe)

1. Click the start button at the bottom left corner of your screen.
2. Click Control Panel
3. Click Java
4. In the Java window click the "security" tab
5. Click Edit Site List
6. Click Add in the new window
7. Put the following in the appropriate location:
http://www.mocpages.com
8. Click Okay

Now it should work.

Are you sure you included the http:// and are you sure you added the correct version?
http://www.mocpages.com/
http://mocpages.com/

You would need to add the one that applies according to which version of the site you log in to (or add both to be on the safe side).

All I know is that when I put in http://www.mocpages.com, it still didn't work, but when I put in the page with the actual uploading device, it worked perfectly fine. I got it to work for me, and I know how to fix it if I need to again, and that's all that really matters.

Guys, because the conversation was getting off topic I have removed a few comments. Digital dreams is correct you can access the site via two addresses one with thw WWW. prefix and one without.

As he suggested, if one doesn't work, add both.

There really isn't any need for hostility you were both just trying to help.

Now unless there is amy NEW information that would be HELPFUL, can we end this conversation, for now.

I use safari on a MacBook Air and have not had this problem before now. Needless to say, I am having the security warning pop up and cannot upload my pictures I need help fixing the problem so that I can post my MOCs. Please respond ASAP.

Regardless of whether or not you use a Mac, just search for Java in the computer.
