My code is giving error:

Tried this solution but it did not work

link to my code

[edit by admin: formatting]

Your code is trying to access the file /home/simmi/student.csv, but your username is jk1997 -- which means that your home directory is /home/jk1997.

Somewhere in your code you are defining the directory where uploaded files should go -- from the traceback, it looks like you're setting a configuration variable called UPLOAD_FOLDER. Right now that is set to something like /home/simmi/. You should set it to something in your own home directory; I'd suggest creating a directory called uploads inside your home directory and then setting it to /home/jk1997/uploads, because allowing people to upload stuff directly into your home directory could be a security problem.

I have tried the solution you are telling but it's still giving the same error. link to my modified code

Is the error exactly the same (that is, mentioning "simmi" in the error message)? If so, perhaps you didn't reload the website after making the code change?

Yup,I missed that. Sorry for such a silly mistake. Thanks a lot.
