pdf upload

Postby msj29aa » Wed Jun 22, 2011 1:37 pm

hey guys.

Im having problem uploading PDF files to my server. .txt is no problem.

my php looks like this:

<?php

if ($_FILES["file"]["error"] > 0)
{
echo "Return Code: " . $_FILES["file"]["error"] . "<br />";
}
else
{
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("upload1/" . $_FILES["file"]["name"]))
{
move_uploaded_file($_FILES["file"]["tmp_name"],
"upload1/" . $_FILES["file"]["name"]);
echo "Stored in: " . "upload1/" . $_FILES["file"]["name"];
}
else
{
move_uploaded_file($_FILES["file"]["tmp_name"],
"upload1/" . $_FILES["file"]["name"]);
echo "Stored in: " . "upload1/" . $_FILES["file"]["name"];
}
}

?>

In your form that allows the user to select the file to upload there should be a field:

Code: Select all

<input type="hidden" name="MAX_FILE_SIZE" value="100000" />


This one maxes the file size to 100KB. PDFs depending on content and compression, are notoriously large compared to plain text.

The is probably the reason for your issue.
