PHP file upload help

Recommended Posts

Hey there,

I am trying to create a php file upload page and have run in to a problem.

going through some tutorials I have come up with the following code

my form

<form enctype="multipart/form-data" action="uptest.php" method="POST">
<input type="hidden" name="MAX_FILE_SIZE" value="30000" />
Send this file: <input name="userfile" type="file" />
<input type="submit" value="Send File" />

and the php code, ftp URL is not exact for privacy reasons


$uploaddir = 'ftp://username:password@';
$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>";


the problem is,, once I choose the file and click the 'send this file' button, it works, seems fine, says it is succesful, however the file is not located in the ftp address.

I can access the same address in IE and upload files to it just draging and dropping..does anyone have any idea why this is doing happening?

thanx in advanced

there are one more consideration. that is file size. are you sure is that file's size is not exceeding than MAX_UPLOAD_SIZE?? and check the CHMOD of the uploading folder in FTP. change it in to 777

and let me know. how is it now.

Thank you,
