Monitoring File Uploads using Ajax and PHP
Handling the File Upload
index.php file created in the previous section, the form is submitted to a file called
upload.php file is simply used to make a call to the
upload() method of the
FileUploader PHP class.
The other thing we do in this file is specify the directory where the file should be saved. Typically your own upload functionality will behave slightly different, but for our purposes this will suffice.
require_once('FileUploader.php'); $path = realpath(dirname(__FILE__) . '/uploads'); $fu = new FileUploader(); $fu->upload('myFile', $path);
The first argument passed to
upload() is the name of the file form element in
index.php, while the second argument is the path where the file should be saved.
