Thread: Multiple File Upload not working...

  1. #1

    Multiple File Upload not working...

    I am working on a form that takes some text inputs and two files.

    1 file is an image, and the other is an .mp3

    The script works fine up to uploading the Image file... but it doesn't upload the .mp3 any idea what I'm doing wrong?

    FORM (simplified):
    <form id="performer" name="performer" action="add.php" method="post" enctype="multipart/form-data">
    <input id="image" name="ufile[]" type="file" />
    <input id="music" name="ufile[]" type="file" />
    <input type="submit" name="submit" value="Upload" />
    PHP Code:
        //set the different directories
    $image_dir '../../info/images/';
    $music_dir '../../info/music/';

    //set $image / $music to file destination
        //set $image_tmp / $music_tmp to file's upload name
    $image_name basename($HTTP_POST_FILES['ufile']['name'][0]);
    $image_tmp $HTTP_POST_FILES['ufile']['tmp_name'][0];
    $image $image_dir basename($HTTP_POST_FILES['ufile']['name'][0]);
    $music_name basename($HTTP_POST_FILES['ufile']['name'][1]);
    $music_tmp $HTTP_POST_FILES['ufile']['tmp_name'][1];
    $music $music_dir basename($HTTP_POST_FILES['ufile']['name'][1]);

    //move image to its destination

    //move music to its destination
    the PHP script above was simplified A LOT but i know the problem lies somewhere in the lines posted and not in the ones I took out (like the extension checks) because If there is no file or the extension is wrong it wont even attempt to upload the file thus I would get a custom error message instead of the one I am getting.

    The error i'm getting refers to the variable $music_tmp where it is on the LAST LINE above.

    An error occurred in script '/home2/stillfri/public_html/stevefest/admin/band/add.php' on line 107: copy() [function.copy]: Filename cannot be empty Array
    I know the file is being uploaded because I test for a .mp3 extension on the $HTTP_POST_FILES['ufile']['name'][1] array and the test returns that it is an .mp3 extension....

    which means at least the file name is getting to the server...

    I don't know... does anyone have any ideas. I've read like 20 different multiple file upload tutorials and my syntax matches the ones in the tuts (so don't bother linking me to any tutorials please and thanks)

    since you're not using a dynamic amount of uploads, why not use seperate fieldnames? have you tried that?

    You can never underestimate the stupidity of the general public.

    wow I feel like a retard.

    I found the problem... and i'm wondering why no-one suggested checking it...

    you know the "upload_max_filesize" setting in the 'php.ini' file

    the setting i didn't even know exhisted....

    yah it's fixed now.

    So if anyone else has this problem check the 'upload_max_filesize' in 'php.ini' and change it to what you need.

    Thanks for replying RVGate

    I feel like a complete noob... oh wait....... yah i am.. self taught PHP and database programmer.. go me

    Since this became such an issue I am actually doing more research into the php.ini file and what it controls.

    I simply never thought to look into it before as none of the books I read actually discussed it in detail.

    The only way I learn is through mistakes hence the "self taught PHP database programmer" thing....

    If your self taught that pretty much translates too...

    YAY! another problem once i figure out the solution i will learn something new
