Hi,
When uploading files to cPanel File Manager v3 upload-ajax.html, it fails to do anything if the uploaded filename has a comma in it. I've tried with Chrome, Firefox, and Edge and get consistent results. I use bluehost.

There is no error message, just no file uploads. If I remove the comma(s), it uploads fine.

Once the file is uploaded, I can rename it to add the comma without issue.

Is this a known issue or intended limitation? Anything I can do to fix?

I could use FTP, but prefer to use the cPanel file manager. Thanks for any help!

Hello,

I have confirmed this is a bug in our file manager upload function. It is filed as CPANEL-16241.
