Create an HTML form with enctype attribute, put input element with file type. Below is an example:
<form enctype="multipart/form-data" action="yourscript.php" method="post">
<input type="hidden" name="MAX_FILE_SIZE" value="2000000">
<input type="file" name="attach" size="35">
<input type="submit" name="submit" value="Submit">
</form>

You will also need code to perform the upload, just having the <input type="file"> won't allow you to upload it to your server.

If you don't have any code your provider might already allow uploading via 3rd party component.

I also came across this page - don't know if it is of use as I'm not a PHP person.
