Hi

I have an occasional problem with the following scripts

Here is the file upload form

<?php

	session_start();
	if(isset($_SESSION['username']) ==  false){
	header("Location: login.php");
	exit();
	}

	if(($_SESSION['userlevel']) != 'admin'){
	header("Location: login.php");
	exit();
	}

?>

by some files what do you mean ?
some file types?
or its uploads/not upload same file types..
Those files names are latinic or not?

its very possible the problem to come out from the file name..

Edited by sv3tli0: n/a

Doesn't make sense to me:

<form enctype="multipart/form-data" name="addcontact" action="processaddcontact.php" mehtod="POST">

mehtod -> method
I can't see why "POST" when you're using $_GET to process
Why "multipart/form-data" if no file upload involved?

I am trying to upload .jpg files but some of them it does not upload but enters the filename to the database. and sometimes it uploads to the server but filename does not go into database. Its really bizarre and I really need help

dunno if it will make a diff:

<input name="uploadedfile" type="hidden" value="<?php echo $filename; ?>" />

notice without the x2 quotes.

BUT as I said originally, and you seem to have ignored:

<form enctype="multipart/form-data" name="addcontact" action="processaddcontact.php" mehtod="POST">

WILL NOT WORK
Do this:

<form name="addcontact" action="processaddcontact.php" method="POST">

Equally, this WILL NOT WORK:

$title= $_GET['title'];
	$firstname= $_GET['firstname'];
	$surname= $_GET['surname'];
	$house= $_GET['house'];
	$street= $_GET['street'];
	$town= $_GET['town'];
	$county= $_GET['county'];
	$country= $_GET['country'];
	$postcode= $_GET['postcode'];
	$email= $_GET['email'];
	$website= $_GET['website'];
	$home= $_GET['home'];
	$mobile= $_GET['mobile'];
	$diocese = $_GET['diocese'];
	$parish= $_GET['parish'];
	$moreinfo= $_GET['additionalinfo'];
	$photo= $_GET['uploadedfile'];

You need to use $_POST instead of the $_GET in each case.

You also seem to be adding PK values to the DB. Stipulate the fields explicitly

INSERT INTO table (field1,field2,field3) VALUES ('value1','value2','value3')

Leave out the autoincrement field altogether. It will be assigned automatically.

Also you don't clean (sanitize) any of your data. This will lead to SQL injection. read up on mysql_real_escape_string().

To follow up with ardav, you should always check to make sure the variables are actually set. With that, make sure the <form method=""> you are using is the same as the php method ($_POST,$_GET,$_REQUEST).

if(isset($_GET['title'])) { $title= mysql_real_escape_string($_GET['title']); }
    if(isset($_GET['firstname'])) { $firstname= mysql_real_escape_string($_GET['firstname']); }
    if(isset($_GET['surname'])) { $surname= mysql_real_escape_string($_GET['surname']);
    if(isset($_GET['house'])) { $house= mysql_real_escape_string($_GET['house']); }

and so on for all of your variables.

As ardav pointed out, you want to use mysql_real_escape_string() to avoid SQL injection. Make sure that your database information (ex: include('config.php') is available on the page, otherwise the function will return an error (can't connect).
