is there a possibillity to check how the user-file field is set ?

I tried :


print"<form method=POST action=$_SERVER[PHP_SELF] enctype=multipart/form-data>";


$im_set = "SET";
echo $im_set;
$Im_notSet = "NOT SET";
echo $Im_notSet;

<input name="userfile" type="file" class="forms" size="30">

...but it doesn't work it always returns that it is set.


Passing $_FILES['userfile'] Into Function Does Not Work?

Mar 30, 2009

Code is worth a millions words so, here is what I am trying to do:

<form enctype="multipart/form-data" action="<?php echo $_SERVER['PHP_SELF']; ?>" method="post">
<input type="hidden" name="MAX_FILE_SIZE" value="10000000" />
<input name="userfile[]" type="file" />
<input type="submit" value="Submit" />


Warning: file_get_contents() expects parameter 1 to be string, array given in /path/Pimage.php on line 47

Warning: getimagesize(Array) [function.getimagesize]: failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /path/Pimage.class.php on line 48

Anyone have any clues as to why the ECHO's are not working? Why does $image[name] not echo out the name?

Any Reason Why $_FILES['userfile']['error'] Wouldn't Be Populated?

May 27, 2007

I am in the middle of writing an image upload script and am limiting
the size of uploads via upload_max_filesize. This all seems to be
working well, and if I try and upload a bigger file then I get an
UPLOAD_ERR_INI_SIZE sat in $_FILES['userfile']['error']. All hunkey

However, in my testing there are one or two large files that cause
problems. PHP appears to abort the upload early as it should, but when
my script runs, $_FILES isn't populated at all?!

I have tried to narrow down the difference in these file but I can't
seem to find anything definate. All the ones that fail are AVI or WMV
files if that gives any clue, but even if I rename them to MPG (others
of which work ok), and check the MIME type being sent up has also
changed to mpg, then they still fail as before. I have sent bigger and
smaller files all ok, so it's not size. I can't see anything in the
filename itself that would cause problems.

File Upload - The $_FILES['userfile'] Doesn't Actually Get The Data And Store It

Oct 13, 2009

the $_FILES['userfile'] doesnt actually get the data and store it. I thought maybe its because of the $_GET method which it still maybe but I worked on this for ver long. I tried echo'ing the data in the $fileType, $fileSize, etc and its empty so theres a problem with the data being parsed. below is the code

$fileName = $_FILES['userfile']['name'];
$tmpName = $_FILES['userfile']['tmp_name'];
$fileSize = $_FILES['userfile']['size'];
$fileType = $_FILES['userfile']['type'];
$filePath = $uploadDir . $fileName;
<input name="userfile" type="file" id="userfile">

Control The Size Of Uploads Using $_FILES['userfile']['size'] > Xxx?

Sep 4, 2010

I know you can control the size of uploads in PHP using $_FILES['userfile']['size'] > XXXMy question I suppose is performance related.When you upload a file, my understanding is the whole file gets uploaded to a temporary location, and then you have access to $_FILES What happens if a user attempts to upload a 10gb file? (as an example of a very large file)If a large file is attempted to be uploaded, does this waste server bandwidth as the file needs to be uploaded before it can be processed/validated.I know PHP has like timeouts etc but I'm curious if there is a performance impact from users attempting to upload very large files, even if (for example) the max file size is 2mb.Is this a concern or something unavoidable and just to not worry.

I have a script that allows a user to upload an image, and store that value in a database. If there is already a value in the database the script reverts to a section that allows the user to 'delete' the image and upload another one. In order to retrieve the image from a folder I am using a hidden field in some html to echo the file name then pull that into $_FILES ['imagefile']. The problem is that from the script below I get an undefined index on 'imagefile:' PHP Code:

echo '<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01//EN "http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/strict.dtd">
   <html lang="en">
    <form name="form1" method="post" action="" enctype="multipart/form-data">
    <input type="hidden" name="imagefile" value="<?php echo $image1; ?>">
    <p>&nbsp;</td><td><input name="submit" type="submit" value="Submit"></p>
    //    exit;
    //move image1 to the delete folder.
echo "$image1";
    if(isset( $submit ))

Put $_FILES Into A Session

Jul 17, 2005

I'm trying to get my $_FILES arrays into a session because I want to
move the files later to a specific directory (ie after I get a result_id
from a sql insert). No problem putting the variables in a session but I
can't move $_SESSION['userfile']['tmp_name'] anymore.
$_SESSION['userfile']['error'] is 0 so I don't really see what could be

PHP's $_FILES Properties

Feb 16, 2006

I was wondering if there was a way to retrieve the FULL path of the location of the file before it is uploaded. Reason being is I have a form with lets say 3 places to input data. Two are text and one is a file.

However if they forget to input text into one of the input fields, it will prompt them to insert that into the field, and what I do is i assign the value of the other field to itself, so it essentially remembers what they had typed in. However I can't seem to get the full file extension of the image they are uploading. Code:

I have a PHP-script on page A that receives a file from an HTML-form. I need to immediately forward this file to another page B. On page A currently I forward the user (under certain circumstances) to page B using header ("location: page_b.php");

But unfortunately the file that was posted to page A is lost. Is there a way to forward the file to page B so that I can use the superglobal $_FILES variable on page B? I tried a very bad hack with sessions:

On page A:
$_SESSION["files"] = $_FILES;
On page B:
$_FILES = $_SESSION["files"];

I didn't really expect this to work - unfortunately it does not because the server deletes the temporary file immediately. Well, I could try copying the temporary file to a different filename but I believe there is a simpler way by just adding the file again to the header?

In_array $_FILES

Apr 8, 2007

This function is to preview an entry before it is submitted, my problem is when I'm uploading more than 1 new photos to a past (edited) entry (that is the only time it delves into the if statement). The line with the if statement containing the in_array function like it is will produce only the side that is uploading a new image with $temp_uploads variable. However if I inverse it to '!== false' then it only gets all the ones from the db, no matter how many times it's looped. PHP Code:

function preview($page, $edit_id) {
          global $db, $temp_uploads, $uploads;

          $table  = $db.$page;
          $fields = array_merge($_POST, $_FILES);
        $preview_form .= '<div class="white"></br><form enctype="multipart/form-data" action="?p='.$page.'&z=s&i='.$edit_id. '" method="post"><table class="preview" align="center">'
        //loop through each field in the array
          foreach($fields as $field => $value){
            //if field's value has something special that needs to be done to it EX. upload an image.

Is there any way of setting the $_FILES array without actually uploading a file through http upload?

I ask because I want to send a file that already exists on my server to be handled by my script that deals with normal uploads. The reason the file has to be sent in the $_FILES array is that this is how the upload script receives and processes files and it is zend encoded so I can't edit it!

Can't Upload File To $_FILES

I'm trying to figure out why I can't upload a file in php.
I'm trying it locally on a windows XP machine running Apache 2.2 and

I also tried it on a remote linux server, though in that case I'm not
sure what the s
config settings where, except that it does have PHP and I get the same

Are there any releevant apache settings ? I have not come accross any.

Below is my script, results, and config settings.





if ($_SERVER['REQUEST_METHOD'] == 'GET') { ?>

<input type="file" name="document"/>
<input type="submit" value="Send File"/>
<?php }
echo "FILE=";
echo "</br></br>POST=";


on a post I get an empty $_FILES object and something in the $_POST
variable from the above prints:

FILE=Array ( )

POST=Array ( [document] =feedblitz.txt )

# my php config file has these settings which I also verified with

; Whether to allow HTTP file uploads.

; Temporary directory for HTTP uploaded files (will use system default

$_FILES Empty When Uploading

Aug 28, 2009

When trying to access the $_FILES array, PHP returns the error "Undefined index: picture". In my php.ini file, File Uploads are turned on, and any user can write in the /tmp directory. In the HTML form, enctype is set to "multipart/form-data". Interestingly enough, the basename for the uploaded file prints so I believe that PHP has actually seen the file, but has some problem uploading it.

Snippets from PHP File
echo "Picture=" . $_POST['picture'] . "<br/>";
$uploadedPic = $_FILES['picture']['tmp_name'];
<form action="PHPFile.php" method="post" enctype="multipart/form-data">
<p> Picture </p>

Loop Through $_FILES Array?

Mar 26, 2011

Ok So ive been searching around for quite some time now and i cant figure this out. Here are the inputs i want to loop through

Main photo: <input type="file" name="image[]" />
Side photo 1: <input type="file" name="image[]" />
Side photo 2: <input type="file" name="image[]" />
Side photo 3: <input type="file" name="image[]" />

A couple weird things happened, when i uploaded nothing i use the count($_FILES['image']), i echoed that function, and it return a value of 5. What the heck? There should be no elements in that array, and why is there one extra input when i only have 4 files to begin with.

Now with the actually looping itself, i try using the foreach loop, but it doesnt work.

foreach($_FILES['image'] as $files){echo $files['name']; }

Nothing came up, what i wanted to ultimately do is to loop through all images, make sure they are correct format, size, and rename each of them. But this simple foreach() loop shows that somehow i cant even loop through the $_FILES array and the count() confused me even more when it say that there are 5 elements in the array when i didnt even upload anything.
