Form data with Multiple File Upload
I need help on saving form data to server sql database with multiple file attachments with some basic form validation.
File attachments should be saved in the server in a specific folder, and the attachements name and the other form data should be stored in the sql data base. I am not sure where to start on this . your help is greatly appreciated...

You can use an HTML file input with a name ending in  and it'll create an array of $_FILES for you to work with. Iterate that array, check and validate the uploaded files as necessary, and generate a random name for them. Verify that the random name is not yet in use, and use that name as a part of the filepath in the dbms to store with the other data input in the form.
