Photos not being processed

I am trying to upload a photo for processing from my phonegap application

The photo uploads with no problem but the photo is not being processed. I have tried every step of this process and the problem seems to lie in the photo name that is created is not being processed though it is passed from the php script (used to upload the photo) to the python script used to process the photo.

here is some sudo code to better illustrate my question

import sys from SimpleCV import Image, math

imgvar = str(sys.argv[1])

circle = Image(imgvar)


What am I doing wrong. Php passes the system argument simple cv just doesnt want to use the image name as written?? Any help would be much appreciated.

I even tried a sleep call in php and still not getting the output i desired. Anything else you could think that could be wrong?

Are you sure you are encoding the file correctly? Is it actually saving a file out to the filesystem?

Yeah I know it is weird. It is saving I tried the callback and I tried letting it sleep still nothing. Its not a connection problem and I had all the modules installed. Its definitely server side though.

Two things, are you sure that the file is actually being written to the file system with PHP? If so are you sure that the file is completely done before SimpleCV tries to load it. When the filesystem is saving a file it has to create the name and location before it is completely done. Not sure when your PHP code is running it but you may want it to be in a callback function to verify that is has finished writing the file first.
