I am trying to learn how to set up a service that will accept http-posts including user login and password, authenticate the user, then allow the user to upload a file that will be used to create a new piece of content. I could not find any good resources explaining how to handle user authentication with the services module nor did I find any good resources about how an upload or content creating could be accomplished. Does anyone know of any such resources I may have missed?

  • What language are you using to consume the service? Is it PHP?

  • The client is actually a common lisp based application that will be uploading the file. But should this really matter as long as it can send a properly formatted http-post?

  • Not really no, it's just there are lots of code tutorials out there using PHP, C#, Java etc. The link in Kyle Browning's answer should help

    Normally, just posting a URL isn't an answer. A little context about why the link is useful or a short summary of the link is appreciated.
