Hello I need to change this script so I can have a dynamic name... the script is from here


I have made all my other changes as needed but I can't seem to change the name of the file.  I want the file to be like such when put in the folder..


but I only get the real name.  "2893" is the dynamic part, and I'm sure I can figure that out once i figure out how to correctly change the name, proble need to put a post or something.  Any help here would be great thank you


// JQuery File Upload Plugin v1.4.3 by RonnieSan - (C)2009 Ronnie Garcia
if (!empty($_FILES)) {
	$tempFile = $_FILES['Filedata']['tmp_name'];
	$targetPath = $_SERVER['DOCUMENT_ROOT'] . $_GET['folder'] . '/';
	$targetFile =  str_replace('//','/',$targetPath) . $_FILES['Filedata']['name'];
	// Uncomment the following line if you want to make the directory if it doesn't exist
	// mkdir(str_replace('//','/',$targetPath), 0755, true);
echo '1'; // Important so upload will work on OSX
