PHP Upload single file

Simple PHP uploade file script.

Overview

In this tutorial, create 2 files
1. upload.php
2. upload_ac.php


Steps
1. Create file upload.php.
2. Create file upload_ac.php.
3. Create folder "upload" for store uploaded files.
4. CHMOD your upload folder to "777" by using your ftp software(change permission).

STEP1: Create file upload.php

############### Code

<table width="500" border="0" align="center" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="1" bgcolor="#CCCCCC">
<tr>
<form action="upload_ac.php" method="post" enctype="multipart/form-data" name="form1" id="form1">
<td>
<table width="100%" border="0" cellpadding="3" cellspacing="1" bgcolor="#FFFFFF">
<tr>
<td><strong>Single File Upload </strong></td>
</tr>
<tr>
<td>Select file
<input name="ufile" type="file" id="ufile" size="50" /></td>
</tr>
<tr>
<td align="center"><input type="submit" name="Submit" value="Upload" /></td>
</tr>
</table>
</td>
</form>
</tr>
</table>

STEP2: Create file upload_ac.php

############### Code

<?php
//set where you want to store files
//in this example we keep file in folder upload
//$HTTP_POST_FILES['ufile']['name']; = upload file name
//for example upload file name cartoon.gif . $path will be upload/cartoon.gif


$path= "upload/".$HTTP_POST_FILES['ufile']['name'];
if($ufile !=none)
{
if(copy($HTTP_POST_FILES['ufile']['tmp_name'], $path))
{
echo "Successful<BR/>";

//$HTTP_POST_FILES['ufile']['name'] = file name
//$HTTP_POST_FILES['ufile']['size'] = file size
//$HTTP_POST_FILES['ufile']['type'] = type of file


echo "File Name :".$HTTP_POST_FILES['ufile']['name']."<BR/>";
echo "File Size :".$HTTP_POST_FILES['ufile']['size']."<BR/>";
echo "File Type :".$HTTP_POST_FILES['ufile']['type']."<BR/>";
echo "<img src=\"$path\" width=\"150\" height=\"150\">";
}
else
{
echo "Error";
}
}
?>

STEP3: CHMOD upload folder to 777 (change permission)

This step, do it when you upload to real server. This example, I use WS-FTP, right click at upload folder > FTP Commands > CHMOD(Unix)
