Mac HTTP Upload Error issue… subdomain is the problem… need a solution!

I let this go for a long time because I could upload images on the PC, and most people have found a solution to the problem. It was always one of three things:

1.) Remove .htpasswd protection on site (mostly for people who were in a beta stage of development).
2.) Tinker with mod_security settings.
3.) Upgrade version of Flash.

On a client site for us it was the first problem. So I removed that protection, and now it works. However, on a demo site we built running the same exact version, I just could not figure out the problem. That is until I had the same problem with Wordpress’s new Flash image upload. I checked out some forums for Wordpress. The reason we have this problem is because we are running Wordpress (and the demo) on a subdomain.

I now know for sure this is the issue, and I really need a fix for it. I’m pretty certain our host treats subdomains as virtual Web application roots with the VirtualHost directive. This is a dedicated box as well, so I have full access. Even though our subdomain is a folder within the root, I still have to do this on our .htaccess:

RewriteBase /

If I do anything else for a subdomain I get Internal Server 500 error. Can anyone offer any assistance? The host is Nexcess.net, and the control panel is InterWorx-CP. I have full SSH rights as I am the admin as well.

Can I at least get a hosting provider that visits these forums to verify this for sure so that I can submit a bug? The install for my server looks like this:

-- root
    
-- some miscfile here
    
-- some miscfile here
    
-- some miscfile here
    
-- subdomain
        
-- (magento files)

The URL would be accessed as follows:

http://subdomain.myprimarydomain.com/

Now try and upload a product image for a product on Mac OSX in either Firefox or Safari. I know that configs for Linux distros can vary significantly, but I can’t believe some people still aren’t having this problem. Thanks for any help you can offer.

Actually I didn’t get any issue about subdomain or .htaccess config.

But it’s true that :
* uploading with flash 10 doesn’t work for Mac platform
* uploading with HTTS enabled and a self signed certificate also causes error : SSL Error: Invalid or self-signed certificate (even on FF windows)

Does anyone has tried with a valid certificate to compare ??

Magento Update 1.1.7 seems to have fixed the flash 10 issue.
I have made the switch to 1.1.7 and it’s now working with flash 10 but not with flash 9 player installed.

Magento 1.1.7 and flash 10 are working fine even on Mac , that’s already not bad…
