Hello.

I'm getting an undefined index error with the following code and I can't for the life of me figure out why. Any insight would be greatly appreciated.

I'm using an html form and a PHP file to upload images to a directory and write the rest of the form details to my DB. The images get uploaded to the directory just fine, but it's not writing the rest of the data to the DB for some reason.

.html form

<html>
<form enctype="multipart/form-data" action="add.php" method="POST"> 
Name: <input type="text" name="name"><br> 
E-mail: <input type="text" name = "email"><br> 
Phone: <input type="text" name = "phone"><br> 
Photo: <input type="file" name="photo"><br> 
<input type="submit" value="Add"> 
</form>
</html>

and here is the add.php file for uploading and writing to the database

<?php 
//This is the directory where images will be saved 
$target = 'images/'; 
$target = $target . basename( $_FILES['photo']['name']); 

//This gets all the other information from the form 
$name=$_POST['name']; 
$email=$_POST['email']; 
$phone=$_POST['phone']; 
$pic=($_FILES['photo']['name']); 

// Connects to your Database 
mysql_connect("localhost", "un", "pw") or die(mysql_error()) ; 
mysql_select_db("database") or die(mysql_error()) ; 

//Writes the information to the database 
mysql_query("INSERT INTO `products` VALUES ('$name', '$email', '$phone', '$pic')") ; 

//Writes the photo to the server 
if(move_uploaded_file($_FILES['photo']['tmp_name'], $target)) 
{ 

//Tells you if its all ok 
echo "The file ". basename( $_FILES['uploadedfile']['name']). " has been uploaded, and your information has been added to the directory"; 
} 
else { 

//Gives and error if its not 
echo "Sorry, there was a problem uploading your file."; 
} 
?>

the undefined index error I'm getting is:
"Undefined index: uploadedfile in /Applications/MAMP/htdocs/upload/add.php on line 24"

then below that I get the upload confirmation message that reads;
"The file has been uploaded, and your information has been added to the directory"


thanks a lot in advance!

Hey man!

i got a question maybe you can help me with this....

the HTML CODE: (inserir_produto.php)

<style>

span {width: 150;}

</style>

  <form action='inserir_produto1.php' method="post">
	<h3><b>Inserir Produto</b></h3>
    <span>Marca: </span><input type='text' name='marca' />
    <br />
    <span>Cor Principal: </span><input type='text' name='cor' />
    <br />
    <span>Material de Fabrico: </span><input type='text' name='matfabrico' />
    <br />
    <span>Altura: </span><input type='text' name='altura' />
    <br />
    <span>Largura: </span><input type='text' name='largura' />
    <br />
    <span>Referência: </span><input type='text' name='ref' />
    <br />
    <span>Foto: </span><input type="file" name="file" />
    <br />
    <span>Descrição: </span><input type='text' name='descricao' />
    <br />
    <input type='submit' name='submit1' value='Adicionar Produto' id='submit1' />
    <input type="reset" value="Limpar Tudo" />
    <br />
	</form>

AND THIS IS THE PHP CODE: (inserir_produto.php)

<?php 



if (isset($_POST['submit1']))
	if(	$_POST['marca']!=''			&&
		$_POST['cor']!=''			&&
		$_POST['matfabrico']!=''	&&
		$_POST['altura']!=''		&&
		$_POST['largura']!=''		&&
		$_POST['ref']!=''			&&
		$_POST['file']!=''			&&
		$_POST['descricao']!='')
		
		{
	mysql_connect('localhost','root','');

	mysql_select_db('albino');
	
	
	$sql2="SELECT * from produtos WHERE referencia ='" . $_POST['ref'] . "'";
	$resultado=mysql_query($sql2);
				mysql_fetch_array($resultado);
		
				if (mysql_affected_rows()==0)
				{
					$ficheiro=$_FILES['foto'];
					$nome_final=$_POST['ref'] . "_foto.jpg";
				
					if ($ficheiro['error']==0)
					{
						if ( 
			    			in_array( $ficheiro['type'], array ( 'image/pjpeg', 'image/jpeg', 'image/png','image/gif' ) ) 
							)
						{
							@move_uploaded_file ($ficheiro['tmp_name'], 'foto/' . $nome_final);
							mysql_connect('localhost','root','');
							mysql_select_db('albino');
	}
	}}
	
	
	
	
	$sql="insert into produtos(marca, cor_principal, mat_fabrico, altura, largura, referencia, foto, descricao) values ('" .  $_POST['marca']  .  "','"  .  $_POST['cor']  .  "','"  .  $_POST['matfabrico']  .  "','" . $_POST['altura'] . "','" . $_POST['largura'] . "','" . $_POST['ref'] . "','" . $_POST['file'] . "','" . $_POST['descricao'] . "')";
	
	mysql_query($sql);
	echo "Produto inserido com sucesso! <br><a href='inserir_produto.php'>Voltar</a>";
	}
	
	else {
	echo "Erro! Verifique o formulário!<br><a href='inserir_produto.php'>Voltar</a>";
	}


?>

THE THING IS THAT THE IMAGE THAT I WANT TO UPLOAD IS NOT UPLOADING TO THE SPECIFIC FOLDER...THE ERROR THAT APPEARS ME IS THIS ONE:

Notice: Undefined index: foto in C:\wamp\www\A.S.S\inserir_produto1.php on line 28


CAN YOU HELP ME? IM FREAKING OUT WITH THIS...

I WOULD BE VERY APPRECIATED....

PS.: SORRY ABOUT MY ENGLISH, IM PORTUGUESE

:) As the error itself says, foto is undefined.

$ficheiro=$_FILES['foto'];

should be

$ficheiro=$_FILES['file'];

One more thing, notices are usually generated when you don't initialize a variable [and start using it]. Check out php.net -> error_reporting for more details.

Sorry, there was a problem uploading your file.

Next time please start a new discussion.

The values you are using on those lines do not have a value the first time the page is opened. You'll need to use this construct:

if (isset($_FILES['photo'])) {
    // upload file code
}

hi, i found this thread and same problem with dottom, sorry but im bit slow to pick up the correct solution what nav33n answered "$_FILES". hope u can still help. thanks in advance.

i think i have the answer, but am not sure if this is the correct one.
basename( $_FILES['photo']['name']) instead of basename( $_FILES['uploadedfile']['name'])

thanks again.

This question has already been answered. Start a new discussion instead.
