Everybody! This is important. In a few days, these forums will be moving over to using the totally sweet Discourse platform. To ensure this migration happens smoothly with no loss of content, these forums are currently in a read-only mode. I do apologize for the inconvenience.

There is never a good time to turn the forums off for an extended period of time, but I promise the new forums will be a billion times better. I'm pretty sure of it.

See you all on the other side in a few days, and if you have any (non-technical) questions, please e-mail me at kirupa@kirupa.com. For technical questions, try to find a tutorial that corresponds to what you are looking for and post in the comments section of that page.

    flash->php->mysql and back again

    Hi, does anyone know the script for a php script backend to a flash app that would upload files? basically i want to upload the file into a mysql database and then using mysql_insert_id(); send back the id. I was thinkin of using sessions to store the id and then using loadvars in flash call another php script that would send the id stored in the session. I tried something but it doesn't seem to update the session variable but does insert into the databse.

    if ($_FILES['Filedata']['name']){
    $fileName = $_FILES['Filedata']['name'];
    $tmpName = $_FILES['Filedata']['tmp_name'];
    $fileSize = $_FILES['Filedata']['size'];

    $fp = fopen($tmpName, 'r');
    $content = fread($fp, $fileSize);
    $content = addslashes($content);

    $query = "INSERT INTO files (file_name, size, file) ".
    "VALUES ('$fileName', '$fileSize','$content')";

    mysql_query($query) or die('Error, query failed');
    $_SESSION['fileId'] = "check";

    well, you're not going to upload a file into a DB. you would upload the file onto the server and then INSERT a record of the location in the DB.
