            encoding: 'UTF-8',
            parameters: $('upload').serialize(true),
        onSuccess: function(transport) {
                                       var notice = $('error');

                                            alert('success');
                                        }else{
                                           alert(transport.responseText);
                                        }

I don't see anything wrong with the FORM plus you didn't really provde much PHP code!

This question is more related to Javascript. I think it's best to put this in Javascript section rather than in PHP section.

yah, sorry...
heres my php code:

<?php
include "db_handle.php";
session_start();
$allowedExts = array("jpg", "jpeg", "gif", "png","bmp","pjpeg");
$filename = explode(".",$_FILES["file"]["name"]);
$extension = end($filename);
$pid = $_POST['pid'];

if (in_array($extension, $allowedExts))
  {
  if ($_FILES["file"]["error"] > 0)
    {
    $error =  "Return Code: " . $_FILES["file"]["error"] . "<br />";
    echo $error;
    }
  else
    {
      move_uploaded_file($_FILES["file"]["tmp_name"],"uploads/" . $_FILES["file"]["name"]);
      $stmt = "select photo from media_person where personid=".$pid;
      $parse = mysql_query($stmt);
      $oldPic = mysql_fetch_array($parse);
        if(file_exists($oldPic['photo'])){
            unlink($oldPic['photo']);
        }
      $sql = "update media_person set photo='"."uploads/".$_FILES["file"]["name"]."' where personid=".$pid;
      $query = mysql_query($sql) or die(mysql_error());
      echo 'success';
    }
  }
else
  {
  //the process always enter here cause $_FILE is empty...
  $error = 'not a valid file';
  echo $error;
  }

?> 

thanks any way

@code739

Have you try var_dump($_FILES); to see whether file is actually getting posted correctly?

Then you can try this to see whether there is a file:

if(!empty($_FILES["file"]["name"] > 0)) {}

@code739

Have you try this:

if(!empty($_FILES["file"]["name"] > 0)) {}

-

if (in_array($extension, $allowedExts))
  {
  if(!empty($_FILES["file"]["error"] > 0))
    {
    $error =  "Return Code: " . $_FILES["file"]["error"] . "<br />";
    echo $error;
    }

What did you get?
