file upload - permission denied

Recommended Posts

ive been working on a script to allow users to upload files to a directory. im testing it on my pc. i think ive finally managed to get it working but i get this error message

Warning: move_uploaded_file(../../images/covers/) [function.move-uploaded-file]: failed to open stream: Permission denied in C:\Program Files\xampp\htdocs\gamesdb2\user_add\processes\upload_cover_image.php on line 35

Warning: move_uploaded_file() [function.move-uploaded-file]: Unable to move 'C:\Program Files\xampp\tmp\php43C.tmp' to '../../images/covers/' in C:\Program Files\xampp\htdocs\gamesdb2\user_add\processes\upload_cover_image.php on line 35
file not uploaded

what i dont get is how do i change permissions on my local pc? i remember from a while back that with an ftp program i could change something called chmod on my web host but do i need to do a similar thing on my local pc or is it an error in my script.

i run windows xp media centre, xampp, if somebody could point me in the right direction. thanks

Try to specify the full path.

I don't think it's even possible to change the permissions under Windows.
