Uploading Image - Livecode Tutorial Example? Sessions?

Thanks for those that answered about the problem I was having with FTP. It was the URLEncode issue that was tripping me up.
However, I’m changing gears as I hadn’t realized that I could not ftp directly into a htmlpublic directory on On-Rev. Ultimately I am trying to just create a little iOS app that will allow me upload and image and create a simple html page to display the image.
I have been using the LiveCode tutorial here: “How do I use LiveCode graphics features server-side?” (http://lessons.livecode.com/m/15262/l/156710-how-do-i-use-livecode-graphics-features-server-side <http://lessons.livecode.com/m/15262/l/156710-how-do-i-use-livecode-graphics-features-server-side>)
I can’t get this to work the “start session” included in the script?
The example starts:
## enter the image file into our $_SESSION if one's just been uploaded
if $_FILES["imagefile"] is not empty then
put url("binfile:" & $_FILES["imagefile"]["filename"]) into $_SESSION["imagedata"]
if $_SESSION["imagedata"] is empty then
printForm ## no image has been uploaded so display the form to upload one
create image “myImage” …
If I take the “start session” out, the server script works, sort of…as I think it will upload the image, but because there is no session, you can’t manipulate the image.
Has anybody got this example to work? I have tried moving the “start session” around to different areas of the server script, but that does not seem to work either.
