Uploading Images


Recommended Posts

Hi guys I have got this code here, giving quite a few errors and was wondering if anyone could help me sort it out, the script (should) run straight away just have to edit the database connect, I've tried manually creating the table and taking out the create table but when I try and upload an image I get these errors:


Warning: move_uploaded_file(latest.img) [function.move-uploaded-file]: failed to open stream: Permission denied in /Applications/XAMPP/xamppfiles/htdocs/php/image.php on line 23


Warning: move_uploaded_file() [function.move-uploaded-file]: Unable to move '/Applications/XAMPP/xamppfiles/temp/php2lgspw' to 'latest.img' in /Applications/XAMPP/xamppfiles/htdocs/php/image.php on line 23


Warning: fopen(latest.img) [function.fopen]: failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /Applications/XAMPP/xamppfiles/htdocs/php/image.php on line 24


Warning: filesize() [function.filesize]: stat failed for latest.img in /Applications/XAMPP/xamppfiles/htdocs/php/image.php on line 25


Warning: fread() expects parameter 1 to be resource, boolean given in /Applications/XAMPP/xamppfiles/htdocs/php/image.php on line 25


here is the code:



// Connect to database

$errmsg = "";
if (! @mysql_connect("localhost","root","")) {
        $errmsg = "Cannot connect to database";

// First run ONLY - need to create table by uncommenting this
// Or with silent @ we can let it fail every subsequent time ;-)

$q = < < <CREATE
create table pix (
    pid int primary key not null auto_increment,
    title text,
    imgdata longblob)

// Insert any new image into database

if ($_REQUEST[completed] == 1) {
        // Need to add - check for large upload. Otherwise the code
        // will just duplicate old file ;-)
        // ALSO - note that latest.img must be public write and in a
        // live appliaction should be in another (safe!) directory.
        $instr = fopen("latest.img","rb");
        $image = addslashes(fread($instr,filesize("latest.img")));
        if (strlen($image) < 149000) {
                mysql_query ("insert into pix (title, imgdata) values (\"".
                "\", \"".
        } else {
                $errmsg = "Too large!";

// Find out about latest image

$gotten = @mysql_query("select * from pix order by pid desc limit 1");
if ($row = @mysql_fetch_assoc($gotten)) {
        $title = htmlspecialchars($row[title]);
        $bytes = $row[imgdata];
} else {
        $errmsg = "There is no image in the database yet";
        $title = "no database image available";
        // Put up a picture of our training centre
        $instr = fopen("../wellimg/ctco.jpg","rb");
        $bytes = fread($instr,filesize("../wellimg/ctco.jpg"));

// If this is the image request, send out the image

if ($_REQUEST[gim] == 1) {
        header("Content-type: image/jpeg");
        print $bytes;
        exit ();

<title>Upload an image to a database</title>
<body bgcolor=white><h2>Here's the latest picture</h2>
<font color=red><?= $errmsg ?></font>
<center><img src=?gim=1 width=144><br>
<b><?= $title ?></center>
<h2>Please upload a new picture and title</h2>
<form enctype=multipart/form-data method=post>
<input type=hidden name=MAX_FILE_SIZE value=150000>
<input type=hidden name=completed value=1>
Please choose an image to upload: <input type=file name=imagefile><br>
Please enter the title of that picture: <input name=whatsit><br>
then: <input type=submit></form><br>

ok, never @suppress your database actions.  Is there actualy a file being uploaded here? I see no check for if file exists...


never use the @ error suppressing operator ever really.

IMO, it's simply a band-aid for improper error handling.
