I'm not sure why this is (because people have told me I'm crazy for thinking this), but I've had to specify a full path (from the root) for the destination when using move_uploaded_file(). Meaning, PHP doesn't retain the relative directory when it comes to the destination, so as your destination is "../upload", try changing it to "/admin/upload" (if admin sits on your root dir).
I still can't make sense of it but that's what I had to do to make it work.
