plz rectify the following code of file upload


  <form enctype="multipart/form-data" action="upload.php" method="post">
    <input type="hidden" name="MAX_FILE_SIZE" value="1000000" />
    Choose a file to upload: <input name="uploaded_file" type="file" />
    <input type="submit" value="Upload" />



//–°heck that we have a file
if((!empty($_FILES["uploaded_file"])) && ($_FILES['uploaded_file']['error'] == 0)) {
  //Check if the file is JPEG image and it's size is less than 350Kb
  $filename = basename($_FILES['uploaded_file']['name']);
  $ext = substr($filename, strrpos($filename, '.') + 1);
  if (($ext == "jpg") && ($_FILES["uploaded_file"]["type"] == "image/jpeg") && 
    ($_FILES["uploaded_file"]["size"] < 350000)) {
    //Determine the path to which we want to save this file
      $newname = dirname(__FILE__).'/upload/'.$filename;
      //Check if the file with the same name is already exists on the server
      if (!file_exists($newname)) {
        //Attempt to move the uploaded file to it's new place
        if ((move_uploaded_file($_FILES['uploaded_file']['tmp_name'],$newname))) {
           echo "It's done! The file has been saved as: ".$newname;
        } else {
           echo "Error: A problem occurred during file upload!";
      } else {
         echo "Error: File ".$_FILES["uploaded_file"]["name"]." already exists";
  } else {
     echo "Error: Only .jpg images under 350Kb are accepted for upload";
} else {
 echo "Error: No file uploaded";

Well, you have three conditions there that could be causing it to fall through

if (($ext == "jpg") && ($_FILES["uploaded_file"]["type"] == "image/jpeg") && ($_FILES["uploaded_file"]["size"] < 350000)) {

Have you checked them all individually? This is just part of basic debugging. Use echo, var_dump(), or assert() statments to check these expressions individually.

Example of using assert()

// Active assert and make it quiet
assert_options(ASSERT_ACTIVE, 1);
assert_options(ASSERT_WARNING, 0);
assert_options(ASSERT_QUIET_EVAL, 1);

// Create a handler function
function my_assert_handler($file, $line, $code)
    echo "<hr>Assertion Failed:
        File '$file'<br />
        Line '$line'<br />
        Code '$code'<br /><hr />";

// Set up the callback
assert_options(ASSERT_CALLBACK, 'my_assert_handler');


// Make an assertion that should fail
assert ($a==$b);
