URL: http://GPUDB_IP_ADDRESS:GPUDB_PORT/upload/files/fromurl

Uploads one or more files to KiFS.

Each file path must reside in a top-level KiFS directory, i.e. one of the directories listed in /show/directories. The user must have write permission on the directory. Nested directories are permitted in file name paths. Directories are deliniated with the directory separator of '/'. For example, given the file path '/a/b/c/d.txt', 'a' must be a KiFS directory.

These characters are allowed in file name paths: letters, numbers, spaces, the path delimiter of '/', and the characters: '.' '-' ':' '[' ']' '(' ')' '#' '='.
