SWFUpload, Chrome, and error 2038

Started using SWFUpload for another web project of mine to handle uploads, and it’s been working great. But I hit a snag today. Started getting a very vague “IO Error #2038” message instead of what should have been coming back from the PHP upload script.

After reading through dozens of web posts on how this IO Error 2038 usually an Apache issue I was pretty frustrated. It happened right after an update to Flash so that seemed a likely culprit as well.

On a whim I tried the same thing in Firefox and the error wasn’t there. Closed and reopened Chrome and the error went away there as well.

Guess sometimes the simplest fix is the right one. Now if I just hadn’t wasted so much time before thinking about a restart.
