The PHP global $_FILES contains all the information of file. By the help of $_FILES global, we can get file name, file type, file size, temp file name and errors associated with file.

  • $_FILES['filename']['name'] It returns file name.
  • $_FILES['filename']['type'] It returns MIME type of the file.
  • $_FILES['filename']['size'] It returns size of the file (in bytes).
  • $_FILES['filename']['tmp_name'] It returns temporary file name of the file which was stored on the server.
  • $_FILES['filename']['error'] It returns error code associated with this file.

<form action="uploader.php" method="post" enctype="multipart/form-data">
    Select File:  
    <input type="file" name="fileToUpload"/>
    <input type="submit" value="Upload Image" name="submit"/>




$target_path = "c:/";  
$target_path = $target_path.basename( $_FILES['fileToUpload']['name']);   
if(move_uploaded_file($_FILES['fileToUpload']['tmp_name'], $target_path)) 
    echo "File uploaded successfully!";  
  echo "Sorry, file not uploaded, please try again!";
