I have the following code. It uploads a submitted image to the path C:\Webapps\test\Images. When its stores the Image the name of the Image becomes "ImageMe1.jpg" where Me1 is the name of the photo. I think its somthing to do with my path?

And just on the side . . what would be a cool way to store the path into the database? (Answer this if you get time, otherwise my first query will do)  :}

$uploaddir = "./Images./Images";
$uploadfile = $uploaddir . basename($_FILES['userfile']['name']);

echo '<pre>';
if (move_uploaded_file($_FILES['userfile']['tmp_name'], $uploadfile)) {
   echo "File is valid, and was successfully uploaded.\n";
} else {
   echo "Possible file upload attack!\n";

echo 'Here is some more debugging info:';

print "</pre>";

What's the path of the images directory in relation to the directory where your script is being run? 

I'm a little confused by this:

$uploaddir = "./Images./Images";

Also, is there any reason why you are using basename()?  I dont think its necessary
If you're not part of the solution, you're part of the precipitate
