Recommended Posts

i made a file with form codes and another php file for uploading such as below :

<form action="upload.php" method="post" enctype="multipart/form-data">
    Select image to upload:
    <input type="file" name="fileToUpload" id="fileToUpload">
    <input type="submit" value="Upload Image" name="submit">
</form>

and in another file  name(upload.php):

<?php
$target_dir = "uploads/";
$target_file = $target_dir . basename($_FILES["fileToUpload"]["name"]);
$uploadOk = 1;
$imageFileType = strtolower(pathinfo($target_file,PATHINFO_EXTENSION));
// Check if image file is a actual image or fake image
if(isset($_POST["submit"])) {
    $check = getimagesize($_FILES["fileToUpload"]["tmp_name"]);
    if($check !== false) {
        echo "File is an image - " . $check["mime"] . ".";
        $uploadOk = 1;
    } else {
        echo "File is not an image.";
        $uploadOk = 0;
    }
}
// Check if file already exists
if (file_exists($target_file)) {
    echo "Sorry, file already exists.";
    $uploadOk = 0;
}
// Check file size
if ($_FILES["fileToUpload"]["size"] > 5000000) {
    echo "Sorry, your file is too large.";
    $uploadOk = 0;
}
// Allow certain file formats
if($imageFileType != "jpg" && $imageFileType != "png" && $imageFileType != "jpeg"
&& $imageFileType != "gif" ) {
    echo "Sorry, only JPG, JPEG, PNG & GIF files are allowed.";
    $uploadOk = 0;
}
// Check if $uploadOk is set to 0 by an error
if ($uploadOk == 0) {
    echo "Sorry, your file was not uploaded.";
// if everything is ok, try to upload file
} else {
    if (move_uploaded_file($_FILES["fileToUpload"]["tmp_name"], $target_file)) {
        echo "The file ". basename( $_FILES["fileToUpload"]["name"]). " has been uploaded.";

You need to make sure you're using an absolute path when referring to the target directory. PHP has no concept of relative paths Nevermind this part

You can generally access the web root by using

<?php
$_SERVER['DOCUMENT_ROOT']

Alternatively, you can use 

<?php
__DIR__

This will create an absolute path of the current directory of the running file. So this one may more easily fit into your current code.

Give it a try.

The reason that the script is not working is likely because the "uploads" directory has not yet been created. You can use file_exists() to check if the directory exists yet and if it does not you can use mkdir() to create it.

PHP does understand relative paths. The only reason you need to use __DIR__ is if your script is being included in another file or if the current working directory has been changed. The working directory may have been changed with the chdir() function.
