Uploading an image gives me move_upload_file error

Recommended Posts

I am using a simple image upload. http://www.w3schools.com/php/php_file_upload.asp

 

It gives me 2 errors like this.

Warning: move_uploaded_file(C:/xampp/htdocs/home/upload/images/grandpix 2.jpg): failed to open stream: No such file or directory in C:\xampp\htdocs\home\upload\post.php on line 174
Warning: move_uploaded_file(): Unable to move 'C:\xampp\tmp\phpF915.tmp' to 'C:/xampp/htdocs/home/upload/images/grandpix 2.jpg' in C:\xampp\htdocs\home\upload\post.php on line 174

This is my code. Post.php .  I see that it's the "$target_dir" issue.  How can I fix it?

if(isset($_FILES['fileToUpload'])){
					
	if(!empty($_FILES['fileToUpload']['name'])) {
	
		$target_dir = $_SERVER['DOCUMENT_ROOT'].'/home/upload/images/';
		$target_file = $target_dir . basename($_FILES["fileToUpload"]["name"]);
		$uploadOk = 1;
		$imageFileType = pathinfo($target_file,PATHINFO_EXTENSION);
		
		$check = getimagesize($_FILES["fileToUpload"]["tmp_name"]);
		if($check !== false) {
			$uploadOk = 1;
		} else {
			$errors[] = 'File is not an image.';
			$uploadOk = 0;
		}
		
		// Check if file already exists
		if (file_exists($target_file)) {
			$errors[] = 'Sorry, file already exists.';
			$uploadOk = 0;
		}
		
		// Check file size
		if ($_FILES["fileToUpload"]["size"] > 500000) {
			$errors[] = 'Sorry, your file is too large.';
			$uploadOk = 0;
		}

		// Allow certain file formats
		if($imageFileType != "jpg" && $imageFileType != "png" && $imageFileType != "jpeg"
		&& $imageFileType != "gif" ) {
			$errors[] = 'Sorry, only JPG, JPEG, PNG & GIF files are allowed.';
			$uploadOk = 0;
		}

		// Check if $uploadOk is set to 0 by an error
		if ($uploadOk == 0) {
			$errors[] = 'Sorry, your file was not uploaded.';
		// if everything is ok, try to upload file
		} else {
			if (move_uploaded_file($_FILES["fileToUpload"]["tmp_name"], $target_file)) {
				echo "The file ". basename( $_FILES["fileToUpload"]["name"]). " has been uploaded.";
			} else {
				$errors[] = 'Sorry, there was an error uploading your file.';
			}
		}
		
		$insert_image = $db->prepare("INSERT INTO images(user_id, item_id, image_path, date_added) VALUES(:user_id, :item_id, :image_path, :date_added)");
		$insert_image->bindParam(':user_id', $userid);
		$insert_image->bindParam(':item_id', $item_id);
		$insert_image->bindParam(':image_path', $target_file);
		$insert_image->bindParam(':date_added', $date_added);
		if(!$insert_image->execute()) {
		
			$errors[] = 'There was a problem uploading the image!';
		
		} else {
		
			if(empty($errors)) {
				$db->commit();
				
				$success = 'Your post has been saved.';
			
			} else {
				$db->rollBack();
			}	
		
		}
				
	} else {

		$errors[] = 'An image is required!';
	}
}

Warning: move_uploaded_file(C:/xampp/htdocs/home/upload/images/grandpix 2.jpg): failed to open stream: No such file or directory

"No such file or directory"

 

Obviously it's not talking about the file - that isn't supposed to exist yet. So could it be that the directory does not exist?

Your comment made me think of something.  So I added this code and now it works.

if(!is_dir($target_dir)){
	mkdir($target_dir, 0775, true);
}
