Upload Files

File Upload

To upload file via PHP first we need to create a HTML form.


<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
<body>

<form action="upload.php" method="post"
enctype="multipart/form-data">
    Select image to upload:
    <input type="file" name="fileToUpload" id="fileToUpload">
    <input type="submit" value="Upload Image" name="submit">
</form>
</body>
</html>

*Be ensure we have a enctype tag in form

Now we need to create a PHP script to upload the file.

<?php
$target_dir = "uploads/";
$target_file = $target_dir . basename($_FILES["fileToUpload"]["name"]);
$uploadOk = 1;
$imageFileType = pathinfo($target_file,PATHINFO_EXTENSION);
// Check if image file is a 
	actual image or fake image
if(isset($_POST["submit"])) {
	$check = getimagesize($_FILES["fileToUpload"]["tmp_name"]);
	if($check !== false) {
        echo "File is an image - " . $check["mime"] . ".";
	$uploadOk = 1;
    } else {
	echo "File is not an image.";
	$uploadOk = 0;
    }
    if ($uploadOk == 0) {
        echo "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 {
            echo "Sorry, there was an error uploading your file.";
       }
    }
}
?>
