View Full Version : uploading files problem

Using the php tutorial to upload files , cant get it to work do i need to edit php or mysql? I notice i have 2 errors and its not showing file type, tmp name etc,
so im guessing its not uploading to apache for some reason

Here's the php


echo "<pre>";
echo "</pre>";

//$target_path = "C:/Users/David/Desktop/WORK/remote/lessons/images/".$_FILES['uploadedfile']['name'];


<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">
<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1" />
<title>Untitled Document</title>


<form action="" method="post" enctype="multipart/form-data" name="form1">

<input type="hidden" name="MAX_FILE_SIZE" value="100000"/>

Choose a file to upload
<input type="file" name="uploadedfile" />

<input type="submit" name="Submit" value="Upload">


and here's the output for testing the array

[uploadedfile] => Array
[name] => 010.JPG
[type] =>
[tmp_name] =>
[error] => 2
[size] => 0

the code you posted has been commented out

therefore it wont run

also you cant output the contents of a variable until its been set

I just followed your tutorial and changed target_path :)

i commented it out to test the array

Anyway ive fixed it, like an idiot i was trying to upload to big a file :/

so will uncomment the target path now and see

no we all make mistakes, it can help someone. I owned up to wasting almost an entire day looking for an answer recently only to discover Id omitted a semi colon . it reminds us all to check our code and gie s examples of easy mistakes
