Can anyone help me with a upload-file function using Dreamweaver. I'm a real novice and would appreciate any help applying this function to pages created in Dreamweaver - server-side script, how to apply it and generally what I need to do.

So are you saying that you already have an upload script but dont know how to implement?

No. I've just created the base design in Dreamweaver, and created the form with upload button, but now I need some 'server-side' script to make it work. And the help option and Adobe support is useless! Appreciate any advice.

In dreamweaver, create a new php file. Clear all of the code out of the code view. Now click toggle plain text, copy and paste all of the following into dreamweaver:

<?php
      if(isset($_POST['submit'])){
      $numfilesuploaded = $_POST['numuploads'];
      $count = 1;
 
          while ($count <= $numfilesuploaded)
          {
                  $conname = "new_file".$count;

                  $filetype = $_FILES[$conname]['type'];
                 
                  $filename = $_FILES[$conname]['name'];
                  if ($filename != '')
                  {
                    if ($filetype == "application/msword" || $filetype=="application/vnd.openxmlformats-officedocument.wordprocessingml.document")
                    {
                        $maxfilesize = $_POST['maxsize'];
                        $filesize = $_FILES[$conname]['size'];
                        if($filesize <= $maxfilesize )
                        {
                              $randomdigit = rand(0000,9999);
                             
                              $newfilename = $randomdigit.$filename;
                              $source = $_FILES[$conname]['tmp_name'];
                              $target = "files/".$newfilename;
                              move_uploaded_file($source, $target);
                              echo $count." File uploaded | ";
                      
                        
                        }
                        else
                        {
                            echo $count." File is too big! 10MB limit! |";
                        
                        }
                    }
                    else
                    {
                        echo " The file is not a supported type |";
						echo $filetype;
                    }
                  }
          $count = $count + 1;
          }
      
      }
?>
<?php
    $numuploads = 1;
    $count = 1;
?>
<form action="<?php echo $_server['php-self'];  ?>" method="post" enctype="multipart/form-data" id="something" class="uniForm">

      while ($count <= $numuploads)
      {

      <?php
            $count = $count + 1;
      }

      <input type = "hidden" name="maxsize" value = "10240000">

Name the above file uploader.php
Move the file to your server. In the same directory as the uploader.php file, create a new folder and name it files. Now go into your browser and test the uploader.php file.

Many thanks, much appreciated. I will give it a go, but as said, my background in print design and not web. I've no problem creating static pages, but when it comes to the back-end stuff, I'm pretty much lost. As soon as I've got it going, I will ping you back. Creating a php file in Dreamweaver is pretty straight forward I guess? Regards.

Thank you for this info. I think I am close but how do I created the submit button so the file will upload?

My GOODNESS !!!! I've been searching for an answer to this problem for a week and I've finally found it.

buddylee17 YOU ARE THE MAN !!!!
