Thanks for taking the time to read this ..

I have an image upload script that works perfectly .. now i want , that if an image is uploaded with the same name as an image that already exists it replaces the image with the new one..

i tried removing the section below but that just produced new errors

All help welcome even if it is another script that does what i want or a link to one.


*************************************************
Section i tried removing
 
if(file_exists("$ADMIN[directory]/$picture1") OR $ok == 2) {
$error .="File name already exists for file $num<BR>";
} else {
copy ($picture3, "$ADMIN[directory]/$picture1");
$error .="File $num has been uploaded<BR>";
}
}
}
*************************************************



FULL SCRIPT


<?php
exit();
}
}

$num = 0;
while($num < $ADMIN[UploadNum]) {
$num++;


$picture = "fileup$num"."_name";
$picture1 = $$picture;
$picture2 = "fileup$num";
$picture3 = $$picture2;

if($picture3 != "none") {
$filesizebtyes = filesize($picture3);

$ok = 1;
if($filesizebtyes < 10) {
$error .= "Error uploading (file size lower than 10 bytes) for file $num<BR>";
$ok = 2;
}



if(file_exists("$ADMIN[directory]/$picture1") OR $ok == 2) {
$error .="File name already exists for file $num<BR>";
} else {
copy ($picture3, "$ADMIN[directory]/$picture1");
$error .="File $num has been uploaded<BR>";
}
}
}

if(!$error) {
$error .= "No files have been selected for upload";
}


?>

Cheers

Steve

According to the help, the copy() function will always overwrite existing images.

"If the destination file already exists, it will be overwritten. "

So.

Are you sure that the image is NOT being overwritten?

With your script if the image exists, it will NEVER be overwritten.

I assume that $ok means that the overwrite is allowed?

If so, then (and assuming $ok is a boolean), try ...

if(file_exists("$ADMIN[directory]/$picture1") AND $ok === False)

This says, if the image exists AND they have NOT said it is OK, then don't copy.

If the image does NOT exist OR they have said it IS ok to copy, then the copy function will work.
