Upload a single file using PHP – II

Upload a single file using PHP

In the previous post, we’ve seen how to upload a file using php. In this post, how to rename a file and validate file size and type.

Rename a file

First, lets create the form with enctype “multipart/form-data”, method “post”  and input tags file, submit using the html:

<form method="post" enctype="multipart/form-data" >
<input type="file" name="attachment"  />
<input type="submit" name="Submit" value="Upload" />
</form>

If a uploaded file name already exists in server then rename the file name. The sample PHP script for rename file as follow.

<?
if($_POST['Submit']=='Upload')
{ 
$attachment= $_FILES['attachment']['name']; 
if($attachment)
{
$path= "upload/".addslashes($attachment);  
if(file_exists($path))
{
$path_info = pathinfo($_FILES['attachment']['name']);
$extension = strtolower($path_info['extension']);
$path= "upload/".date('dmyHis').".".$extension;
}
if(copy($_FILES['attachment']['tmp_name'], $path)) 
echo 'Successfully Uploaded...';  
} 
}
?>

File size validation

The following PHP script used to validate the file size should be less than 1 mb.

<?PHP

if($_POST['Submit']=='Upload')
{ 
$attachment= $_FILES['attachment']['name']; 
if($attachment)
{
$fileSize = ($_FILES['attachment']['size']/1024);
if($fileSize<1024)
{
$path= "upload/".addslashes($attachment);   
if(copy($_FILES['attachment']['tmp_name'], $path)) 
 echo 'Successfully Uploaded...'; 
}
else
 echo 'File size < 1mb...'; 
} }

?>

File type validation

The following PHP script used to validate the file type should be jpg, png and gif.

<?PHP

if($_POST['Submit']=='Upload')
{ 
$attachment= $_FILES['attachment']['name']; 
if($attachment)
{
$path_info = pathinfo($_FILES['attachment']['name']);
$allowed_type=array('jpg','png','gif');
if(in_array(strtolower($path_info['extension']),$allowed_type)==true)
{
$path= "upload/".addslashes($attachment);   
if(copy($_FILES['attachment']['tmp_name'], $path)) 
 echo 'Successfully Uploaded...'; 
}
else
 echo 'Invalid File type...'; 
} }

?>
