Default Image for file upload to mysql database PHP

Hi, There is a really simple answer to this, but for the life of me I cannot work it out. What I have is a script to upload images to a mysql databse which works like a dream. The problem I am having is that if a user does not select an image, no image is entered into the database, which cause issues when displaying on the site and also with updating the image a later time.

What I have been trying to do is if the userfile is left empty, on upload the php script selects an image of the server /admin/noimage.php and uploads that to the database.

Attached is the code snippet

I have tried now for ages... I just cannot do it and I am desperate for a little help.

Thank you very much in advance
if(isset($_POST['upload']) && $_FILES['userfile']['size'] > 0)
 {
 $fileName = $_FILES['userfile']['name'];
 $tmpName  = $_FILES['userfile']['tmp_name'];
 $fileSize = $_FILES['userfile']['size'];
 $fileType = $_FILES['userfile']['type'];
 
 $fp      = fopen($tmpName, 'r');
 $content = fread($fp, filesize($tmpName));
 list($width,$height,$typeq,$attrq)=getimagesize($tmpName);
 $content = addslashes($content);
 fclose($fp);
 
 if(!get_magic_quotes_gpc()) $fileName = addslashes($fileName);
 
 $query='INSERT INTO timages (filename,size,type,width,height,content) VALUES ("'.$fileName.'","'.$fileSize.'","'.$fileType.'","'.$width.'","'.$height.'","'.$content.'")';
 mysql_query($query,$dbh) or die(mysql_error());
 $val=mysql_fetch_row($res);
 $imageid=$val[0];

Your code doesn't seem to be complete. - so I'm assuming that your if statement ends after the last line you posted?

Anyway - you are not physically uploading an image into the DB, you are only saving the filename in the db - the actual image is saved on the filesystem.

So, all you need to do is add an "else" to your if statement that inserts a set imagename into the db if the userfile is not larger than 0...

IE, you make a "static" sql query containing constant values matching the std image you already have on the system and you simply insert it's details for that instance
if( (isset($_POST['upload'])) && ($_FILES['userfile']['size'] > 0) )
 {
 $fileName = $_FILES['userfile']['name'];
 $tmpName  = $_FILES['userfile']['tmp_name'];
 $fileSize = $_FILES['userfile']['size'];
 $fileType = $_FILES['userfile']['type'];
 
 $fp      = fopen($tmpName, 'r');
 $content = fread($fp, filesize($tmpName));
 list($width,$height,$typeq,$attrq)=getimagesize($tmpName);
 $content = addslashes($content);
 fclose($fp);
 
 if(!get_magic_quotes_gpc()) $fileName = addslashes($fileName);
 
 $query='INSERT INTO timages (filename,size,type,width,height,content) VALUES ("'.$fileName.'","'.$fileSize.'","'.$fileType.'","'.$width.'","'.$height.'","'.$content.'")';
 mysql_query($query,$dbh) or die(mysql_error());
 $val=mysql_fetch_row($res);
 $imageid=$val[0];
} elseif (isset($_POST['upload']) && $_FILES['userfile']['size'] == 0){
 
$query='INSERT INTO timages (filename,size,type,width,height,content) VALUES ("YOUR_STD_FILEMNAME_HERE","PICTURE_SIZE_HERE","FILETYPE_HERE","WIDTH","HEIGHT","CONTENT")';
 mysql_query($query,$dbh) or die(mysql_error());

I am uploading the images to the database, however if the user diesn't upload an image it causes many problems... so what I need to do is if they do not upload an image an image is selected from /admin/noimage.php and added to the database. This image can be changed at a later date (done that)
What I can't do is use the else statement to replace an image if the user doesn't upload an image.

Full code I am using follows

Thank you for your help

my bad - didn't read through your code properly.
OK, so all you need to do is replace the $content part if the  $_FILES['userfile']['size'] == 0

So, you still use the elseif as I proposed earlier, but now you just open the file directly from it's known location and then write that into the db instead of looking for the uploaded file.

so, in this part in the "elseif" section, you simply substitute $tmpName with the known image name and location:

 $fp      = fopen($tmpName, 'r');
 $content = fread($fp, filesize($tmpName));
 list($width,$height,$typeq,$attrq)=getimagesize($tmpName);
 $content = addslashes($content);
 fclose($fp);

need to overwrite $filename as well, so just add $filename = "noimage.jpg"; on line 21 or 23 in my previous post.

Hi thanks... It is sort of working except that it isn't enteringthe size filename or type into the database.. any ideas

I made a typo with $filename, it should be $fileName...

Just check if that fixes it?

psimationCommented:
also, this: list($width,$height,$typeq,$attrq)=getimagesize($tmpName);
is getting $typeq and you are trying to enter $fileType into the DB, maybe change that to enter $typeq instead.

And for filesize, do and extra : $fileSize =  filesize($tmpName); and see if that helps.
