Thanks for any help it is greatly appreciated.

This is probably an easy one but I have no idea how to do it.

In the script below I need to change the upload location dir from temp
to a dir called uploads. What part do I change please.




class maxUpload{
var $uploadLocation;

/**
* Constructor to initialize class varaibles
* The uploadLocation will be set to the actual
* working directory
*
* @return maxUpload
*/
function maxUpload(){
$this->uploadLocation = getcwd().DIRECTORY_SEPARATOR;
}

/**
* This function sets the directory where to upload the file
* In case of Windows server use the form: c:\\temp\\
* In case of Unix server use the form: /tmp/
*
* @param String Directory where to store the files
*/
function setUploadLocation($dir){
$this->uploadLocation = $dir;
}

function showUploadForm($msg='',$error=''){
?>
<div id="container">
<div id="header"><div id="header_left"></div>
<div id="header_main">Maxim Modeling Upload Form</div><div id="header_right"></div></div>
<div id="content">
<?php
if ($msg != ''){
echo '<p class="msg">'.$msg.'</p>';
} else if ($error != ''){
echo '<p class="emsg">'.$error.'</p>';

}
?>
<form action="" method="post" enctype="multipart/form-data" >
<center>
<label>File:
<input name="myfile" type="file" size="30" />
</label>
<label>
<input type="submit" name="submitBtn" class="sbtn" value="Upload" />
</label>
</center>
</form>
</div>
<div id="footer"><a href="http://www.phpf1.com" target="_blank">Powered by PHP F1</a></div>
</div>
<?php
}

function uploadFile(){
if (!isset($_POST['submitBtn'])){
$this->showUploadForm();
} else {
$msg = '';
$error = '';

//Check destination directory
if (!file_exists($this->uploadLocation)){
$error = "The target directory doesn't exists!";
} else if (!is_writeable($this->uploadLocation)) {
$error = "The target directory is not writeable!";
} else {
$target_path = $this->uploadLocation . basename( $_FILES['myfile']['name']);

if(@move_uploaded_file($_FILES['myfile']['tmp_name'], $target_path)) {
$msg = basename( $_FILES['myfile']['name']).
" was uploaded successfully!";
} else{
$error = "The upload process failed!";
}
}

$this->showUploadForm($msg,$error);
}

}

}
?>

Well i dont think you can change where the file goes initially, you can only move it to a specified folder.

Look in your text :


$target_path = $this->uploadLocation . basename( $_FILES['myfile']['name']);

if(@move_uploaded_file($_FILES['myfile']['tmp_name'], $target_path))

$target_path i suppose is the path which it moves the file from your server's temp folder and move_uploaded_file, is the script for doing this so just change the $target_path to the destination you wish, but it has to include "$_FILES['myfile']['name']" i think, so it knows what file you are talking about.
