Android file uploads

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Hi

I have some PHP to upload files in a webbrowser but it seems to do an odd thing.

 

This problem could be with the php code or it could be an Android thing, I'm not sure.

 

It is supposed to send a multi file array.

 

On an Android, if you select

 

Documents/Images/Camera then multi select - it works fine

 

If you select

 

Documents/Photos/Camera and multi select - the phone only sends 1 image

 

So there seems to be a difference between "Images" and "Photos" but I don't understand why.

 

Any ideas?

 

Thanks

<?php

date_default_timezone_set('Europe/London');

$logfile = "C:\\Windows\\temp\\files.txt";

$extensions = array('jpeg', 'jpg', 'png', 'gif');
$dir = 'uploads/';
$count = 0;

if ($_SERVER['REQUEST_METHOD'] == 'POST' and isset($_FILES['files']))
{
  $files = multiple($_FILES);

  //file_put_contents ( $logfile , print_r($files,TRUE), FILE_APPEND | LOCK_EX);

  $fileCount = count($files['files']);

  for ($i = 0; $i < $fileCount; $i++)
  {
	// if file not uploaded then skip it
	if ( is_uploaded_file($files['files'][$i]['tmp_name']) )
	{

		$imageFileType = pathinfo($files['files'][$i]['name'],PATHINFO_EXTENSION);

		// skip suppoted files
		//if( !in_array($imageFileType, $extensions) )
		//  continue;

		$filename = stripslashes($files['files'][$i]['name']);
		$extension = strtolower($imageFileType);
		$file_name=gmdate("Ymd_His",time())."_".rand(0,100000);
		$newname=$dir.$file_name.'.'.$extension;

		  if( copy($files["files"][$i]["tmp_name"], $newname) )
			$count++;
	}
  }

  echo json_encode(array('count' => $count));
  header('Location: /index.php');
  exit;
}


function multiple(array $_files, $top = TRUE)
{
    $files = array();
    foreach($_files as $name=>$file){
        if($top) $sub_name = $file['name'];
        else    $sub_name = $name;

        if(is_array($sub_name)){
            foreach(array_keys($sub_name) as $key){
                $files[$name][$key] = array(
                    'name'     => $file['name'][$key],
                    'type'     => $file['type'][$key],
                    'tmp_name' => $file['tmp_name'][$key],
                    'error'    => $file['error'][$key],
                    'size'     => $file['size'][$key],
                );
                $files[$name] = multiple($files[$name], FALSE);
            }
        }else{
            $files[$name] = $file;
        }
    }
    return $files;
}

?>

what is the size of the files that work and what are the sizes of the files that don't work?

They are all the same files in the same camera roll. I've tried with small screen shots to native Samsung J5 camera full res.

When you hit a button to start the upload, the Android device opens up it's file browser, there are the 2 methods I described above, and they seem to do different things.

If that is the answer to my question I am in the wrong forum. Not familiar with Anroids bu1t if you are talking about features supplied by the phone rather than the application, why are you asking us here for help?

Because I don't know if it's the Android or the PHP that is the problem, I thought that maybe someone would have come across the same issue and be able to say definitvly it's Android and nothing you can do about it or, change the PHP and do XYZ instead.
