So, did I get you right?
I have to adapt PHP to Rails and change JQuery-File-Upload file upload
action "server/php" to my file upload action

I have to adapt PHP to Rails and add the ID of the example form (do you
mean "form id="fileupload""? ) to my Rails form_for [1] method and then
fold it in the JavaScript JQuery-Upload-File use to make the preview.

[1] I have such kind of form_for

<%= form_for do |f| %>
<%= f.label :image, "Upload paintings:" %>
<%= f.file_field :image, multiple: true, name: "painting[image]" %>
<% end %>

and I have to add and ID to it, dont I?

There are two ways to solve my problem, did I define them correctly?

Cheers and many many thanks,

want to make a oreview before uploading.
I have studied as well the code of JQuery Upload. I have copied and
pasted the content of all their pages and files. The problem is I cannot
add the files because the "action" is really strange:
<!-- The file upload form used as target for the file upload widget -->
<form id="fileupload" action="server/php/" method="POST"
<!-- The fileupload-buttonbar contains buttons to add/delete
files and start/cancel the upload -->

They do not have a controller with a function server/php , but they do
have a folder server/php with other files. I have downloaded this folder
and added it to my rails project, but I have no idea how I can link
action="server/php/" with that folder.

You're not, not unless you put it in the /public folder, and configure
Apache to run the PHP interpreter against it. I have heard of this sort of
thing being possible, but I have never attempted it.

If you already have file upload working with Rails, then there's no reason
to add the form tag as they have here, just learn from it. Think of this as
the working model that you must adapt from PHP to Rails. Change action to
your file upload action, or just add the ID of this example form to your
Rails form_for method. Then fold in the JavaScript that they use to make
the preview, and you should be good. If they are doing a client-side
preview, then the form handler (PHP or Rails) is completely outside of the
problem, not related at all to the solution.
