Hi there. I appreciate your help as previously. You all are amazing!
I'm not sure my php code is my problem as it checks out ok in syntax checker. Maybe I need a second php file that the first one points to? I know my form is fine. I use them all the time. I may just not understand the process. I have spent hours going through tutorials and cannot get to the bottom of it. I am learning PHP so I appreciate your patience.
Here's what I need to know. Do I only need two files (the html form, and the php), or three files, with the second PHP called by the first? Do I have to contain them inside the upload folder, or do I need to point to a folder apart from those two files that is exclusively for uploaded files to be dropped into? They also talk about a temporary folder where the file is first stored, but I am unclear whether I need to add further code to the PHP file or a second PHP file that instructs the file downloaded to a temp folder to be moved to the upload folder. Where is this temp folder? D I create this temporary folder also and if so, where does it need to be? I have created the upload folder and set all the permissions and made it 777 as I have read it needs to be. Perhaps my problem is incorrect paths? Then to retrieve the uploaded files, do I just access my account via FTP? So far, I am just echoing the failure to upload message, so I know my form is communicating with the php file.
Thank you so much.
