Hi, I was wondering how I would get this upload script (3 pages) to upload to a certain folder, for example, a "downloads" folder.  I got this script a few days ago and it works fine as it is, but now I have a need to upload to certain folders from a central location.
Can anyone help?  :S

<form name="form1" method="post" action="uploadForm2.php">
	Enter number of replays<br>
	<input name="uploadNeed" type="text" id="uploadNeed" maxlength="1"><br>
	<input type="submit" name="Submit" value="Submit">

<form name="form1" enctype="multipart/form-data" method="post" action="processFiles.php">
	Select file location:<br>
// start of dynamic form
$uploadNeed = $_POST['uploadNeed'];
	<input name="uploadFile<? echo $x;?>" type="file" id="uploadFile<? echo $x;?>">
// end of for loop
	<input name="uploadNeed" type="hidden" value="<? echo $uploadNeed;?>"><br>
	<input type="submit" name="Submit" value="Submit">

$uploadNeed = $_POST['uploadNeed'];
// start for loop
$file_name = $_FILES['uploadFile'. $x]['name'];
// strip file_name of slashes
$file_name = stripslashes($file_name);
$file_name = str_replace("'","",$file_name);
$copy = copy($_FILES['uploadFile'. $x]['tmp_name'],$file_name);
 // check if successfully copied
 echo "$file_name | uploaded sucessfully!<br>";
 echo "$file_name | could not be uploaded!<br>";
} // end of loop

in your processFiles.php, try adding the pre-existing folder name to where your upload will be placed.

$copy = copy($folder_location . $_FILES['uploadFile'. $x]['tmp_name'],$file_name);

where, $folder_location is already existing. if you need to create the folder right then, you can use the mkdir() function.
