File upload using PHP

File uploading using PHP is very commonly use in PHP driven website . To upload file using PHP you have to insert one attribute into form tag that is enctype="multipart/form-data" . It defines how the form content will encrypt when it will travel to server.
Create a upload folder in current location of your program. And after uploading the file will save in upload folder.

Step 1) copy and paste following code to upload file using PHP. It will work for any type of file.

    echo "Upload: " . $_FILES["file"]["name"] . "<br />";
    echo "Type: " . $_FILES["file"]["type"] . "<br />";
    echo "Size: " . ($_FILES["file"]["size"] / 1024) . " Kb<br />";
    echo "Temp file: " . $_FILES["file"]["tmp_name"] . "<br />";

    if (file_exists("upload/" . $_FILES["file"]["name"]))
        echo $_FILES["file"]["name"] . " already exists. ";
      "upload/" . $_FILES["file"]["name"]);
      echo "Stored in: " . "upload/" . $_FILES["file"]["name"];
                <form action="myajax.php" method="post" enctype="multipart/form-data">
                Choose file to upload:-<input type="file" name="file">
