Hi Guys

I am creating a site and i want users to be able to upload videos to a folder on a server, using SQL to store the path of the video and the name.

I have created this Code. And it does upload all the details, but does not upload the video itself...

<?
session_start();
require("connection.php");

$title = mysql_real_escape_string($_POST['title']);
$date = mysql_real_escape_string($_POST['date']);
$author = mysql_real_escape_string($_POST['author']);
$type = mysql_real_escape_string($_POST['type']);
$description = mysql_real_escape_string($_POST['description']);

$vidName = $_FILES['vid']['name'];
$vidTmp = $_FILES['vid']['tmp_name'];
$vidSize = $_FILES['vid']['size'];

$maxFileSize = 2000000;
$filePath = "uploads/videos/".$vidName;

	move_uploaded_file($imgTmp, $filePath);
	$query = sprintf("INSERT INTO videos(title, date, author, description, type, vid) VALUES ('%s', '%s', '%s', '%s', '%s', '%s')", $title, $date, $author, $description, $type, $filePath);
	if(!mysql_query($query, $connect)) {
	die(mysql_error());
	} else {
	echo("Choose a video!");
	}

?>

Can anybody tell me where im going wrong or give me some advice?

Thanks,

Evan

You may need to change

move_uploaded_file($imgTmp, $filePath);

to

move_uploaded_file($vidTmp, $filePath);

See if that does anything.

Cheers...

Tried that and still doesn't work... it also adds blank fields within my table on SQL??

Any ideas?

Thanks,

I am sure the entire code to upload is not inside the post check of submit button like -

session_start();
require("connection.php");

if(isset($_POST['submit_btn_name']) && $_POST['submit_btn_name']!='')
{
//put your remaining code (what you posted above) here
}

and that's the reason you getting the blank rows in the database..

You need to change your settings to allow files > 2Mb - see your php.ini file.
