Upload and Download Files in PHP


In this project you can learn here how to upload and download files using php. The user can only upload with this format pdf, txt, html, htm, exe, zip, doc, xls, ppt, gif, png, jpeg, jpg and php. Hope this will help you in your project.

Note: Due to the size or complexity of this submission, the author has submitted it as a .zip file to shorten your download time. After downloading it, you will need a program like Winzip to decompress it.

Virus note: All files are scanned once-a-day by for viruses, but new viruses come out every day, so no prevention program can catch 100% of them.


1. Re-scan downloaded files using your personal virus checker before using it.
2. NEVER, EVER run compiled files (.exe's, .ocx's, .dll's etc.)--only run source code.
