PHP Multiple files upload

You can upload multiple files with one time submit. Array is a big role in this tutorial, let's see the scripts.

Overview

In this tutorial, create 2 files
1. multiple_upload.php
2. multiple_upload_ac.php


Steps
1. Create file multiple_upload.php
2. Create file multiple_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 multiple_upload.php

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

<table width="500" border="0" align="center" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="1" bgcolor="#CCCCCC">
<tr>
<form action="multiple_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>multiple Files Upload </strong></td>
</tr>
<tr>
<td>Select file
<input name="ufile[]" type="file" id="ufile[]" size="50" /></td>
</tr>
<tr>
<td>Select file
<input name="ufile[]" type="file" id="ufile[]" size="50" /></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 multiple_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


$path1= "upload/".$HTTP_POST_FILES['ufile']['name'][0];
$path2= "upload/".$HTTP_POST_FILES['ufile']['name'][1];
$path3= "upload/".$HTTP_POST_FILES['ufile']['name'][2];

//copy file to where you want to store file
copy($HTTP_POST_FILES['ufile']['tmp_name'][0], $path1);
copy($HTTP_POST_FILES['ufile']['tmp_name'][1], $path2);
copy($HTTP_POST_FILES['ufile']['tmp_name'][2], $path3);

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

echo "File Name :".$HTTP_POST_FILES['ufile']['name'][0]."<BR/>";
echo "File Size :".$HTTP_POST_FILES['ufile']['size'][0]."<BR/>";
echo "File Type :".$HTTP_POST_FILES['ufile']['type'][0]."<BR/>";
echo "<img src=\"$path1\" width=\"150\" height=\"150\">";
echo "<P>";

echo "File Name :".$HTTP_POST_FILES['ufile']['name'][1]."<BR/>";
echo "File Size :".$HTTP_POST_FILES['ufile']['size'][1]."<BR/>";
echo "File Type :".$HTTP_POST_FILES['ufile']['type'][1]."<BR/>";
echo "<img src=\"$path2\" width=\"150\" height=\"150\">";
echo "<P>";

echo "File Name :".$HTTP_POST_FILES['ufile']['name'][2]."<BR/>";
echo "File Size :".$HTTP_POST_FILES['ufile']['size'][2]."<BR/>";
echo "File Type :".$HTTP_POST_FILES['ufile']['type'][2]."<BR/>";
echo "<img src=\"$path3\" width=\"150\" height=\"150\">";

///////////////////////////////////////////////////////

// Use this code to display the error or success.


$filesize1=$HTTP_POST_FILES['ufile']['size'][0];
$filesize2=$HTTP_POST_FILES['ufile']['size'][1];
$filesize3=$HTTP_POST_FILES['ufile']['size'][2];

if($filesize1 && $filesize2 && $filesize3 != 0)
{
echo "We have recieved your files";
}

else {
echo "ERROR.....";
}

//////////////////////////////////////////////

// What files that have a problem? (if found)


if($filesize1==0) {
echo "There're something error in your first file";
echo "<BR />";
}

if($filesize2==0) {
echo "There're something error in your second file";
echo "<BR />";
}

if($filesize3==0) {
echo "There're something error in your third file";
echo "<BR />";
}
?>

 

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)
