Try this coding, Please remember 8MB is max.


Code: Select all

<form enctype="multipart/form-data" action="upload_ac.php" method="POST">
<input type="hidden" name="MAX_FILE_SIZE" value="1000000" />
Choose a file to upload: <input name="uploadedfile" type="file" />
<input type="submit" id='upload' name='upload' value="Upload File" />

Code: Select all

$target_path = "../";

$target_path = $target_path . basename( $_FILES['uploadedfile']['name']); 

	if(move_uploaded_file($_FILES['uploadedfile']['tmp_name'], $target_path) && $_POST['upload']) {
		echo "The file ".  basename( $_FILES['uploadedfile']['name']). 
		" has been uploaded";
		echo "There was an error uploading the file, please try again!";
Thanks & Best Regards,
