Well it doesn’t work, what is the message? … Have you checked your php.ini for max upload file size ?

Sometime it show error

Error, query failed : Data too long for column 'size' at row 1

Thanks for reply "jkon"

erm...sorry..how can i check it??

Well my friend, the message is telling you what is wrong , Data too long for column 'size' . What is the result of “SHOW CREATE TABLE attachment” that you defined the column 'size' ?

what datatype you have used for size in your attachment table?

i define the column 'size' 5.. because i don't want it show longer size (exp : 543.8789789) actually the file size that i want to upload is 3582KB.. but not allowed to upload..

Thanks for reply "Karthik_pranas"...
i use varchar(5)

Just maths
You say

$_FILES["file"]["size"] < 5000000000000)

And then

$size =  ($_FILES["file"]["size"]/ 1024);

So size could be 5000000000000/1024 which is 4882812500 so it isn’t 5 digits number …

commented: yes +7

Change your varchar length as varchar(10)

hurm.. than i change my code but still not work for file 3582KB..

if (($_FILES["file"]["type"])
 && ($_FILES["file"]["size"] < 5000000))
