How to Create Upload File

In this article, we are going to learn how to create Upload File. This simple Upload File the users enable to upload any kind of files and save into the database table.

Creating one file upload for the files that we are going to upload, one TextBox for the file name, and one TextArea for the file description as shown in the image below.


Here's the simple source code to create as shown in the image above.

  1. <div class="row-fluid">
  3. <div class="span4">
  4. <!----- form ---->
  5. <form action="upload.php" method="post" enctype="multipart/form-data" name="upload">
  6. <label style="color:blue; font-size:18px; font-family:cursive;"> File </label>
  7. <input name="uploaded_file" type="file" class="input-xlarge" required/>
  8. <input type="hidden" name="MAX_FILE_SIZE" value="1000000" />
  9. <label style="color:blue; font-size:18px; font-family:cursive;"> File Name </label>
  10. <input type="text" name="fname" required>
  11. <label style="color:blue; font-size:18px; font-family:cursive;"> Description </label>
  12. <textarea name="desc" cols="" rows="" class="input-xlarge" required></textarea>
  13. <br/>
  14. <input name="Upload" type="submit" value="Upload" class="btn btn-primary btn-large" />
  15. </form>
  16. <!---- end form -->
  17. </div>
  19. <div class="span8">
  21. <table class="table table-bordered">
  22. <tr>
  23. <th>File Name</th>
  24. <th>Description</th>
  25. <th>Date Upload</th>
  26. </tr>
  27. </thead>
  28. <?php $query=mysql_query("select * from up_files")or die(mysql_error());
  29. while($row=mysql_fetch_array($query)){
  30. ?>
  31. <tr>
  32. <td><?php echo $row['fname']; ?></td>
  33. <td><?php echo $row['fdesc']; ?></td>
  34. <td><?php echo date("M d, Y h:i:s A",strtotime($row['fdatein'])); ?></td>
  36. </tr>
  37. <?php } ?>
  38. </tbody>
  39. </table>
  40. </div>
  42. </div>

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.
